I have been tasked with finding group video teleconferencing between my Chi and NY sites.
I received the following email from the GM in NY, " Would like to investigate teleconferencing options between the IL engineering conference room and NY training room. Interested in options/$ that we might consider. The attached link was recently featured in IEEE Spectrum.
And a second email that stated, "Videoconferencing: Very soon we will be rolling out new product development teams (or PODS) that will be cross-functional (apps engineer, mechanical engineer, component engineer, etc) as well as cross-facility in certain cases and these teams will need "TOOLS (Go To Meetings as well as in my mind videoconferencing)" to be capable of effectively working together between facilities on development projects. Another aspect of this is to be able to review and analyze a component/part/assembly and I was envisioning some kind of a mounted camera that you could manipulate and view a part under for the other team to observe. We are beating on the how do we increase the "velocity" of new product realizations and I expect this video conferencing capability will play a role."3
I already have GoTo Meetings. But based on this request I got some quotes which were like $70k for both locations together! So obviously I must be going in the wrong direction with this.
Im looking for some hardware and software recommendatons.
Thank you in advance.
