Describing the overall user experience of a visual collaboration session is a challenge. We are familiar with the video conferencing experience, whether it be Skyping or Google Hangouts with friends and family, or using video conferencing in rooms at work for regular meetings, that we often have difficulty visualizing video interactions any other way-– until we actually try it!

Since Aerus clients are flexible enough to send and receive multiple high definition video streams at once, any source of full motion video can be brought into the session - recorded or live – for collaborative purposes.

We had a great time at Enterprise Connect re-connecting with industry peers, meeting new colleagues and gaining more insight into the trends, user expectations and perceptions around cloud, video, collaboration and of course, WebRTC. It is obvious that the business communications landscape is rapidly evolving from hardware to software centric models as we saw more software and cloud-based vendors at the show than last year.

This demo is all about advanced collaboration capabilities. Watch Scott use devices you’re already familiar with—Macs, PCs, iPads—and the applications that run on those devices, but he’ll use them in ways you've never seen before. Scott will show us different ways to use Aerus to enable easy sharing of the items you use every day and how to turn them into collaborative items in an Aerus session.

When we come across a new thing in our world, our first action is to try to relate it to something we’re already familiar with. On the plus side, this can help us figure it out faster. On the negative side, though, this can make us ignore or dismiss completely new discoveries, inventions or concepts simply because we can’t find existing buckets to put them in. The challenge for technology innovators is to help the market define and internalize new buckets so that analysts, media and customers can more quickly understand where the solution plays in the overall market.

In a great NoJitter post titled “Watson, I Want to See You Now,” Matt Brunk did us the honor of “getting” our story and explaining it in a way that was immediately understandable and intuitive. Matt starts off with a reflection on Bell’s famous line, “Watson, come here I want to see you,” and then he adds the word “now”
"… to highlight today's context in two ways. Now is the imperative and I mean now as in instantly; and secondly when I say I want to see you, I mean just that, so the empowering video conversation is what I want immediately, unscheduled and without disciplinary constraints of office worker etiquette of sending out advance notice that I want to engage in a video conversation…. When our workflow is held up, delayed or interrupted you can be sure that so goes the cash flow. Herein is the problem."
In Matt’s case, time is money and spontaneous interaction is his most common workflow. For a CEO holding a company meeting, scheduled is the workflow needed. It’s about supporting not only spontaneous workflows, but supporting ANY workflow – scheduled, unscheduled, invited or impromptu, point-to-point, multi-point, many-point, group collaboration, presentation style, room or desktop, people coming in and dropping off, stationary or mobile.
As part of his argument, Matt included a diagram we think is important in putting workflow into a broader context than simply “spontaneous.”
Workflow, as in the figure above, should include all the ways that people choose to work together. The inherent problem with traditional video conferencing is not THAT it is scheduled, but rather that it MUST be scheduled. Bridged architectures are bad only insofar that they don’t support other types of workflow other than scheduled. And therein lies the heart of the problem.
It may appear to be a subtle thing, but its very important in understanding where visual collaboration is headed. Tell us what you think about visual collaboration in the comment section below!

The technology world has always suffered from rampant “termitis,” a condition marked by a constant flood of new terms coined by different vendors, analysts and bloggers to try to describe the same thing.
The disease has been around for a long time and it’s bad for the patient – the technology market – because buyers and users have to struggle to understand concepts that should be simple to grasp. A perfect example is “telepresence.” There are many definitions out there, and so how does a buyer make sense of it all?
