The definitive guide to deriving business value from IP video solutions

Using today’s rich new IP-based technologies for video, voice, and web collaboration, businesses can streamline and accelerate processes, increase productivity, and improve both top and bottom lines. In The Power of IP Video, a team of Cisco® experts shows you exactly how to make the most of these powerful new IP video solutions. Writing for both business and technical decision makers, the authors present new best practices for optimizing virtually any program or process and for improving collaboration between virtually every employee, customer, supplier, and stakeholder.

To demonstrate IP video at work, they also present an extensive set of case studies from large, medium-size, and small companies in many leading industries. Along the way, they demonstrate the real-world application and value of several key Cisco solutions, including Cisco Unified MeetingPlace®, Cisco Unified Video Advantage, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco TelePresence™, Cisco Digital Media Management, video surveillance, and WebEx®.
