Hardware-based video conferencing solutions can provide an exceptional AV experience--no debate. But they’re costly and a bit…old school. Today, enterprises have a range of software-based options for video-enabling their meeting rooms. Some organizations are using off-the-shelf personal conferencing apps (e.g. Skype for Business, WebEx, GoToMeeting, etc.), while others are using conferencing apps optimized for meeting rooms from vendors like BlueJeans, Microsoft, and Zoom. Which approach is the right one? Can you do both? Should you do both? What are the pros and cons of each strategy? Or should you avoid the software option altogether – at least for now? This session will provide the information and insight organizations need to make the right decisions re: software-based meeting room video conferencing.

* What use cases are best suited for software-based video meeting rooms?
* How do you define what is “good enough” performance for your company?
* What are the real costs associated with software-based, meeting room video conferencing?
* Is software-based video reliable enough for critical meetings?
* How do you select the right solution for your organization?
