Over the past two years, a number of key developments have transformed the video communications market from ho-hum to white hot. Reasons for the turnaround include not only technology shifts, such as more pervasive broadband connectivity and a steady drop in hardware prices, but also specific vendor-driven market events such as the release of Apple’s (s AAPL) iPhone 4 with FaceTime, Skype’s mobile and consumer electronics push, and Cisco’s (s CSCO) acquisition of Tandberg.
Due to the growing interest in this market, we at GigaOM Pro have already released three reports on the topic over the past six months: A look at consumer video communication across PC, TV and mobile screens, The Consumer Video Chat Market, an analysis of Skype’s CE and mobile platform efforts called SkypeKit: Skype’s Platform for CE-Based Communication, and this weeks at the enterprise video communications market, “The Enterprise Videoconference Landscape, 2010 – 2015.”
We also are presenting our first 2010 webinar, The Video Communication Explosion. This complimentary one-hour event will be next Tuesday at 10 AM Pacific. The format is roundtable, featuring GigaOM Pro analysts Alfred Poor and Lisa Pierce and GigaOM mobile guru, Kevin Tofel.
So if you haven’t had a chance to read any of our reports on the topic and want to hear about the market from our own GigaOM Pro experts, please sign up for this free webinar and we’ll talk to you next Tuesday!
