Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2010/09/14 - BrightCom CEO Bob McCandless will discuss telepresence beyond the business application and the future of a specialized telepresence industry at TMCnet’s ITEXPO West 2010 in Los Angeles, CA.
BrightCom, performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions announced today that CEO, Bob McCandless will be speaking at the 2010 TMCnet Internet and Telephony Conference and Exposition West in Los Angeles, CA Oct 4-6, 2010. The panel session entitled “Communication Beyond the Enterprise: The Personal Investment in Telepresence” will feature Mr. McCandless’ insight into the evolution of telepresence from the boardroom to the home and public spaces. He will also voice his thoughts on the future of the telepresence industry and technology.
“I am thrilled to be speaking once again at TMCnet’s ITEXPO,” stated Mr. McCandless. “The conference is an excellent platform for forward thinking and innovative minds to come together to discuss the current issues and ideas on VOIP and IP communications.”
“I am very excited to be discussing the future of telepresence technology and the industry. I feel there is significant need to discuss the specialization of telepresence and video conferencing products such as high end conference rooms, mobile phone video applications, software based video and live streaming media applications. This is greatly in opposition to vendors like Cisco who are pursuing an uber-convergence of all of these solutions with network and managed services. ITEXPO West will be a great conduit for this discussion as it allows video conferencing and telepresence vendors like BrightCom to present our ideas and approach to this rapidly growing market”, added Mr. McCandless.
While telepresence and videoconferencing are already being leveraged by businesses small and large to increase collaboration and reduce operational costs worldwide, these technologies are merely scratching the surface of their potential. This session will discuss this and allow audience members to participate and learn from the discussion of the growing prominence and robust future potential of telepresence technology. The panelists will also look at some of the companies that are already realizing the benefits of faster decision making and an ability to excel in their competitive markets, while providing their employees a happier, healthier and more productive work environment.
The panel session will take place on Thursday October 4, 2010 at 3:15pm at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The panelists will also include representatives from Polycom and Vidyo Technologies.
