Steljes Hire, has added the Polyspan View Station 512K ideal for smaller events, and the Polyspan View Station 512K MP designed for large conferences to its range of available products for short to long term rental.
Historically everyones first named objection to using video conferencing to reduce travel costs and increase collaboration between remote sites, was the awkward time delay and potential loss of connection. Their second objection was probably cost.
Today, advances in technology and increases in bandwidth have virtually removed these delays and dropped connections. As the use of video conferencing in the corporate world has expanded, its cost has fallen. In addition to this the necessary equipment has dramatically reduced in size, the majority of corporate sites and event venues already have the required ISDN lines in place, and set up time is minimal.

The Polyspan View Station 512K has an automated camera, power microphone, and can be connected to any size screen through a projector, TV, or plasma screen. Although more suitable for one to one usage, the compact unit is also perfectly capable of supporting larger events. The ability to feed any number of external camera's through the vision mixer enables the far end to receive the best picture display. The data transfer capability also supports the sharing of data files between conferenced parties.
The Polyspan View Station 512K MP system is designed for larger conferences. The video conference displayed image can be projected on to virtually any size screen, and the built in Multipoint facility supports the connection of up to 4 other sites at the same time. The 512K MP can also be connected to a local connection such as a LAN to conference real time pictures.
The dramatic improvement in the quality of video conferencing and its supporting products has removed the historic objections explains Eddie Bance, Director of Steljes Hire. With the significant cost of travel and time away from the office, we are finding the demand for video conferencing at events and conferences on the increase. Our experience in managing such implementations means we can support our resellers and their clients to ensure a smooth and professional conference.
