VC vendor bolstered after ash disruption

AUTHOR: Inavate

Medium has attributed a 40 per cent rise in enquiries for LifeSize HD VC to the disruptive volcanic ash could.

The company says while air travel was suspended videoconferencing became a more attractive proposition and expects the VC market to grow 16 per cent in the next year.

Many videoconferencing vendors have cited travel disruption and rocketing costs as factors in an uptake of their technology. The recent travel chaos, caused by Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull, has added fuel their arguments.
