Video conference proliferation

Announcements from Viseon and Tandberg illustrate growing popularity of teleconferencing.

The oil and gas videoconferencing market is hotting-up with announcements from Viseon and Tandberg. Parker Drilling Company has purchased Viseon VisiFones for video communications between its offices worldwide.


Claimed to be the first low-cost broadband videophone, the VisiFone is a stand-alone system that does not require a PC. The VisiFone operates on any broadband connection and home or office network including high-speed Internet connections via DSL or cable modem—delivering up to 30 fps video.
