Room video conferencing interoperability critical for hybrid work

Vendors are beginning to take solid steps to make sure their video conferencing apps are interoperable with whatever meeting apps employees want to use.

At many companies, groups of employees are coming back to the office — either on a full-time or part-time basis. Their return poses challenges for audiovisual teams, IT departments and business leaders, who must confront a different meeting environment than they had prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, video conferencing is a critical part of virtual collaboration; as a result, the number of video apps has exploded. About 75% of companies view video as important as voice, according to Metrigy’s “Unified Communications Management and Endpoints: 2021-22” global study of 396 companies. More than half of organizations are expanding their deployments of room video conferencing systems.
