SightLink allows access to a VMR from any type of device, whether a video conferencing system, a web browser, through Microsoft’s Lync, Skype or Skype for Business clients, a smartphone or a tablet, a regular phone, and in many other ways. Being always available and accessible for ad-hoc or scheduled meetings our customers have found that sharing information, presentations and collaborating is easier than ever before.
According to a recent Nemertes Research survey of 132 organisations, Cloud-based video conference systems are gathering steam. In 2016, 31% of organisations were using cloud video conferencing. This year, that number jumped to 40%, with another 41% planning to use cloud video conferencing. "Video conferencing in the cloud has skyrocketed," said Irwin Lazar, a Nemertes analyst. "Cloud has become the elixir that allows companies to rapidly expand video without having to make a huge capital investment upfront."
The real difference a cloud based solution makes is in its convenience and affordability but there are other factors that have made services such as SightLink become increasingly in demand.
