  4. What is Video Conferencing? • Video conferencing uses telecommunications of audio and video to bring people at different sites together for a meeting. This can be as simple as a conversation between two people in private offices (point-to-point) or involve several sites (multi-point) with more than one person in large rooms at different sites. Besides the audio and visual transmission of people, video conferencing can be used to share documents, computer-displayed information, and whiteboards. • H.323 (protocol of how the packets of content travel between points and how cameras and networking components communicate with one another) describes how video conferencing operates over the Internet (TCP/IP or just IP, just like how your desktop computer communicates). Multipoint Conferencing Units (MCUs- Bridging) handle the traffic flow in multi-point video conferences

  5. Why video conferencing? • a live conversation is needed; • visual information is an important component of the conversation; • the parties of the conversation can't physically come to the same location; or the expense or time of travel is a consideration. Examples of how video conferencing is Used by Customers • Meeting were vendors or contractor are in another cities and travel is expensive • Advisory Committee and Stakeholder Meetings • Training – Where interaction is required yet the trainees are located all over the state, country… • Classes and Distance Learning – Students, Teacher, Special Content • Interviewing candidates for open positions in your organization • To be part of a process – testimony is court, Judge, DA’s and Inmates • Services from a central point to people in different locations – counseling and medical advice • Agency or Division meeting where not all staff can attend

  6. What do You Need to Conduct a Video Conference Basics • Network Bandwidth (standard vs high definition) and security clearance with firewalls to connect with the other parties (video firewall) • Bridging Services (3 or more parties in the conference) • Camera with Speaker • Display (TV)

  29. Polycom Green January 2008

  30. Environmental Agenda Building Momentum • Significant Worldwide Awareness • Global warming • Greenhouse gases • More Companies Going “Clean/Green” • Stakeholder pressures • Corporate citizen responsibility • Political Pressure • Changing corporate and individual habits to reduce CO2

  31. Why CO2? • Why CO2? • CO2 is largest contributor to greenhouse gases • Burning fossil fuels: gasoline, diesel, jet fuel • Transportation: cars, trucks, airlines • Average .44 lbs CO2 per air mile flown: • Average .9 lbs CO2 per auto mile: • Natural gas usage with appliances • Use of electricity, most of which is generated by fossil fuels • Benchmarks energy efficiency and impact of polluting fuels in single measure • Kyoto Protocol • Reduce CO2 emissions 5% by 2010 • California: Governor Schwarzenegger • Reduce emissions 10% to 2000 levels by 2010 • Reduce emissions 20% to 1990 levels by 2020 • 80% below 1990 levels by 2050

  32. What Can Companies do to Reduce CO2? • Top Recommended Steps to Reduce CO2 • Energy efficient facilities • Product designs (energy efficient) • Manufacturing processes • HR/Employee oriented programs • Travel policies • IT leadership • Power saving data centers • Extend network to home workers • Collaboration and content sharing tools (video and voice conferencing) as alternative totravel

  33. Video and Voice Conferencing:a Green Technology • Rich Communication, Collaboration, and Content Sharing • Global enterprises connect without travel • Meet and collaborate virtually • Enable dispersed workgroups • Foster real-time collaboration for increased productivity • Substantially Reduces Carbon Footprint • Green meetings • Allow attendees to be environmentally friendly • Reduce the need, costs, and CO2 of travel “Using (video) conferencing and collaboration technologies can make a large contribution to the goal of carbon neutrality.” - Alan Greenberg, Wainhouse Research “With the growing emphasis on…green policies in corporations, video conferencing is now seen as having a direct effect on lowering a company’s carbon footprint.” - William Stofega, IDC “Much of my (political) participation now comes via (Polycom HD video) teleconference, a “low carbon emissions” way of working .” - Al Gore

  34. Trend is Clear 32.9% of companies increased collaboration tools usage due to carbon impact concerns 28.1% have a carbon emissions policy 26.3% say carbon policy is coming in next year “…the next several years will see a deepening of the necessary tools and understanding.” Are Companies Buying It? Wainhouse Research, August 2007

  35. Polycom Customers Speak for Themselves “To reduce our air miles, we have made a substantial investment in (Polycom) phone and video conferencing and now have new or upgraded facilities in all of our major offices. Last year we were able to avoid 1.1 million miles of travel through use of telesuite facilities, thereby avoiding the emission of 198,000kg of CO2.” - PWC Corporate Statement “The initial investment (in Polycom video conferencing) is easily justifiable, ultimately increasing productivity. It’s not only protecting the environment, but is common sense for businesses to adopt.” - David Rowe, CEO, Easynet

  36. Considerations for Green Meetings • Determine Existing Meeting and Travel Patterns • Identify What Groups Could Use Video and Voice Conferencing as Alternative Way of Meeting • Identify Applications Where Video and Voice Conferencing can be Applied for Virtual Meetings • Establish a Network Plan and Bandwidth Requirements to Support Communications • Determine how Virtual Meetings will be Hosted, Scheduled and Managed • Identify Needs to Record and/or Stream Meetings for Personnel to Participate at Later Date • Identify Support Services to Maintain Equipment, Manage the Network, etc. • Determine Method for Measuring CO2 Reduction
