HD video conferencing network requirements are going down along with equipment costs, making the technology more accessible to organizations that can't afford multi-screen telepresence systems with requirements of 3-or 4-megabit pipes per screen, according to Rick Snyder, chairman of the Interactive Multimedia Collaboration & Communications Alliance industry group. Enterprises with security concerns and strict quality of service requirements will probably stick to high capacity, private WAN links. But in the growth in enterprise mobility is driving vendors to develop HD video conferencing platforms which use bandwidth more efficiently and are less susceptible to latency, Snyder said.
