Welcome to the new Break Down the Walls

March 16, 2010 - 0 Comments

We originally started the TANDBERG Public Sector blog to keep government employees, thought-leaders and decision makers informed about the ways video teleconferencing was being implemented across government agencies and organizations.

We were looking to highlight the ways in which video makes the government run more effectively, efficiently and smoothly and discuss some innovative ways it answers the difficult questions in government today.

We expected some public servants to find our discussions about teleworking, collaboration and face-to-face communication interesting, but we never expected what happened next. You showed up. A lot of you.

Soon, our readers were demanding to hear more.

So, we expanded our editorial coverage to discuss the ways that video was improving the educational experience for America’s students, making lessons more interactive, and even helping teach teachers.

We added coverage of healthcare and the ways that video is helping to save lives and bring treatments to people who were too far away from the specialists who could provide them. We even began discussing how courts and police and rescue workers were utilizing the technologies to keep our streets safe and better serve American citizens. And it STILL wasn’t enough.

So we’ve taken another step. Much like how our video conferencing technologies break down walls between people and agencies and organizations, we’ve broken down the walls between the TANDBERG blog authors and you, the readers.

Let me be the first to welcome you to

This redesigned site offers the same interesting content about video conferencing in the public sector in a much easier to navigate format, making it easier to find content that is of interest to you. But it also offers much more.

Here you will find all of TANDBERG Public Sector’s social media activities, from YouTube videos to Twitter streams. You will also have access to a library of white papers, case studies and other resources designed to further educate you about how video provides a new way of working, governing, and learning. We encourage you to not only read what we have to say, but interact with us. Tell us your thoughts. Let us know how the trends we’re discussing are influencing you.

We hope you like this new site and that you will be a part of its success. Please feel free to engage with us…ask us questions…and start a dialogue. Break down the walls separating us, and we’ll show you how video can enable a new way of working.

We can’t wait to connect with you.
