Elliot Gold, Publisher of TeleSpan, the conferencing industry’s established voice for the audio and videoconferencing industries said, “The market is no longer just about videoconferencing or simple collaboration; it's about several new waves, really a tsunami, of collaboration tools and options. It’s a Web-driven social networking driven industry now. As such, we will have the best ever line up of speakers teaching us this new environment at our TeleSpan workshop and we will explore the cutting edge of this new wave during the VCIG Live! Webinar and streaming event on February 21, 2013.”
“WebRTC and BYOD, bring your own device, are very hot issues”, continued Elliot Gold. “We know that WebRTC will help us make the leap from millions of videoconferencing and web conferencing end points to billions of end points and with that level of growth comes the challenge and opportunity for VCI-Group members and our TeleSpan constituency. Our TeleSpan workshop and VCIG Live attendees not only get to explore these incredible new opportunities they will also get to hear from some of the leaders of our industry that are paving the way.
According to Todd Hughes, Vice President of VCI-Group, “the world is getting smaller, and WebRTC will make the world even closer. WebRTC; Real Time Communication between browsers, more specifically audio microphones and web cameras, will open up new possibilities to anyone with a PC, MAC, tablet, or mobile device. By browsers adding this standard and often free technology, it will create a world of interoperability and collaboration never seen before. “
