Face-to-face Real-time Communication
By sharing live video, audio, and presentation material
with dispersed colleagues and clients at the same time,
everyone can work closely and effectively, leaving behind
the ambiguity of e-mail and phone calls.
Travel Saving
Being connected with your colleagues and business
partners in different locations is a cost-effective use of
resources, saving the expense of travel and time away
from the office.
Timely Communication
Visual communication allows you to attend off-site
meetings in real-time, quickly and efficiently, no matter
where your business facility or your colleagues are
located across the globe.
Eco Friendly
You can help reduce CO2 emissions and support our
environment by using videoconferencing instead of
business travel. Stay in touch, travel less, and help save
the planet.
Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels)
Stunning Full HD quality enhances your video conferences and is so real to life; it almost feels
like you are actually there.
