Video Conferencing Vs Telepresence
Video Collaboration for the New Workforce

Telepresence systems once graced the most prestigious of conference rooms; they were a sign of success and a tool used by C-level executives. While telepresence systems provided an amazing "in-person" experience they were extremely expensive and hard to use and manage. Today's workforce demands a more flexible solution for meetings. People want to use their own devices; let's face it, everything has a camera these days and why not leverage what you know? Meetings need to be easy to schedule, easy to join and most of all effective. Using a $300,000 telepresence system does not fit the bill. Meetings happen anywhere - from home, on the road, in a huddle room. Gone are the days of dedicated video rooms that house expensive hardware.

BlueJeans make video pervasive. It meets the demands of the everyday worker. Because BlueJeans is in the cloud, people can join from anywhere, don't need any special hardware or software to join and can use their own devices. BlueJeans is an all-in-one meeting tool, think of it as the converging of audio / web / video all in an easy to use service. What's even more appealing is the fact BlueJeans let's devices and video platforms that don't traditionally work together join the same meeting. That means you can have users on Cisco, Polycom, Lifesize, Microsoft Lync, Google Hangouts, mobile devices, tablets and even web browsers all in a single meeting -- you can even have that expensive telepresence system in the meeting.

So before you decide that you can't afford to invest in any more video technology, think again. BlueJeans lets you leverage what you have and extend it to bring your meetings into the 21st century.
