It used to be that a video call meant going to a special room for a high-end video conference or putting up with the small webcam image on a laptop. Today, nearly all of the calls I handle at my desk are video calls because of the mid-range but very portable video meeting experience in the Cisco Jabber client.
Cisco Jabber Clients use the same video engine from Cisco Jabber Video for TelePresence (Movi). I use Cisco Jabber on our internal ACE network, where Cisco IT has been testing it as a new product before supporting it in production.
Being able to join a high-definition video call instantly, without having to schedule and wait, is more than just a convenience. It is becoming a necessity to conduct business these days and sometimes it’s the only way you can reach some people.
As anyone with kids can relate, this time of year is one of the most fun, but challenging times of the year. It’s tough to be away from your family or traveling with so many holidays coming up and the kids buzzing with projects, decorations, costumes and school events.
I was recently in an all day planning meeting and got a text from my wife that our four year old daughter was dying to show me her new Halloween costume. Sure, this is something I could easily see when I got home, but have you ever tried telling a four year old to wait a couple days … or even a few hours? During a break I called home on Cisco Movi from my Mac. Seconds later, there was my daughter. Grinning ear to ear in her adorable flower costume.
