July 17, 2014
How cool and productive would it be if you were able to communicate and share content with colleagues across the world at the click of a button, while on a business trip? It is possible, with contemporary cloud video conferencing solutions. Many hotels around the globe are embracing this technology to attract customers. One among them is South Lodge, an exclusive hotel in West Sussex, U.K., reports Incentive Travel & Corporate Meetings.
Although there are higher costs and complexities involved, global enterprise videoconferencing and telepresence revenue is expected to grow at a 3 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) by 2018, Infonetics (News - Alert) has forecast.
Despite highs and lows, a shift from high-end telepresence suites and multipurpose room systems to lower-cost software and videophones for personal videoconferencing has increased. However, the South Lodge hotel, keeping business competency in mind, launched an innovative video conferencing suite that enables delegates to communicate and share content with their colleagues in a single click, irrespective of geographic location.
The new video conferencing area, called as ‘The Arundel Suite,’ can accommodate up to 20 guests in luxury surroundings. It utilizes the latest AMX Enzo system, which is a flexible platform for meeting rooms that provides Instant On, Instant Access to Content, Instant Meeting Start and Instant Sharing.
According to Enzo, the AMX Enzo system makes it easy to instantly access and share information with others in your meeting. It is designed to always be on and ready when you are to start a meeting. The user is required to simply click the mouse controlling Enzo.
Currently, the new solution at South Lodge is available to use as part of both day guest and 24-hour rates to suit individual businesses’ needs. The day delegate packages include homemade treats and unlimited teas and coffees; a super-fast 10mb Wi-Fi connection; a separate conference organizers’ desk, and lunch at the hotel’s The Camellia restaurant.
“We are delighted to introduce video conferencing at South Lodge,” said David Connell, general manager at the hotel. “This technology allows delegates to communicate with colleagues globally whilst keeping their carbon footprint and travel costs to a minimum.”
