Narrowing a list of vendors in the videoconferencing space the channel should know is a deceptively simple task; after all, how many videoconferencing vendors are there, really? Well, it all depends on what you mean when you talk about “videoconferencing” vendors. Are they makers of high-end telepresence systems? Are they components specialists whose products make the shiny visuals of video work their magic? Are they video content management providers and other niche players who go about the business of making video content less cumbersome to store, access and direct? Are they the service providers that offer videoconferencing-as-a-service or in a hosted configuration to drive costs out of enterprise and SMB spending on video connectivity?
In truth, when we talk about video vendors, we mean all those things. This list — a sampling of the many videoconferencing and video-centric vendors out there — is a good place to get started with the channel-friendly set.
