What industries are big videoconferencing users?

The three largest industry users are recruiting, law enforcement / legal and healthcare.  Recruiters really like video conferencing technology because it allows them to interview more people faster anywhere in the world.  In fact hiring decisions are made on candidates without a physical interview.  Often we are told you cannot get any better than a face to face meeting or physical meeting.  Video conferencing however can be much better and much more informative than a physical meeting especially when interviewing a job candidate.  The camera and microphone exaggerate everything.   Keep in mind a large flat panel display magnifies our heads larger than real life.  Also there is robust sound through the speakers amplifying everything you say in a video conference.  Just about every recruiting firm utilizes video conferencing.

Law enforcement has a variety of applications.  Judges often appreciate video conferencing and use it for routine arraignments.  Prisoners are arraigned right from jail to the courtroom.  This saves a trip in a police car and insures safety for the judge and courtroom staff.   Many law firms use video conferencing for depositions and expert witness interviews.  Video conferencing technology leverages the value of time with legal counsel. Many law firms use video conferencing between offices spread across the state, the country or even the world.

Another significant video conferencing market is found in healthcare.  Large and small healthcare facilities are embracing video conferencing, especially now when health care cost is going up and availability of doctors is going down.  Doctors can now see patients in real time without being at the hospital.

As the technology improves and the cost goes down we are seeing more smaller manufactures embracing video conferencing.  They are finding out that it significantly impacts production and leverages intellectual expertise.  New collaboration capability certainly impacts productivity.   Project managers, engineers and service reps are trouble shooting and solving problems faster and more efficiently in real time over distance with Duo Video, or sending two video streams simultaneously.   Duo Video means you can share content, like computer input or a second camera input in real time.  For example a field service technician using a mobile app on his notebook can show computer input while on a video call.   The home office will see the technician and his computer screens in real time simultaneously.
