Using video calls to enhance communication in business and at home


Here is a seven-minute video clip of me in a D-LinkTV interview on the show floor at Interop Las Vegas 2007 with D-Link's Michael Switzer. We talk about the benefits and options for using video calls and video conferencing to enhance business communication, and its home uses as well.

D-Link is just getting started in video and you can tell by the way they mess up the camera angles, but I give them an "A" for effort and hopefully the content of the video makes up for the shortcomings in video production. If you can't play the video clip, you can go directly to the D-LinkTV site to watch it.

Have you tried video calling at work or at home? What hardware and software have you used? How did it work? Join the discussion.
