The market for video collaboration is a broad one, ranging from conventional systems that rely on hardware collaboration solutions like screens and cameras, to software-based platforms configured as apps on smartphones, tablets and other personal devices.
According to a market report published in April by Transparency Market Research, the global video conferencing market was valued at just over $5 billion in 2016 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.9 percent from 2018 to 2026, to reach $10.5 billion by the end of the forecast period.
Integrators are finding video collaboration to be a fertile field, says George Maniatis, account manager at Mountainside, N.J.-headquartered Verrex.
“There’s a very wide range of possible solutions out there and choosing among them can be challenging,” he says, ranging from hardware-centric collaboration solutions from traditional vendors like Polycom and Cisco to software-based ones like Skype and GoToMeeting to apps on smartphones such as Zoom.
