See things differently with VU

Wednesday, July 27, 2011DistinctiveImpression MMG was invite to a presentation by VU TelePresence hosted at the Commerce Club Atlanta.

The VU is a web conferencing tool which promises to reduce the over head expenses of small businesses by providing them with an alternative meeting solution.

How does this very from Skype, imeeting , oVoo and the countless other meeting tool accessed online?

Price and privacy controls.

Granted, while the presentation by Atlanta District Manager  Abdul Ashi-Suliaman was impressive.

VU videoconferencing

The product in itself has a few limitations . VU can only connect a maximum of 9 people at one time. Web based users must  download software to run the application. The product is not supports on  Mac or mobile device which do not support flash 10. On a wireless connection the product may preform on a less the desirable level making communication shakey. Lastly the VU system is equipment to the size of a 1990’s computer system.

Now for the good news. VU  is easy to use and can be setup in less than 15mins. It allows for screen sharing  and operates on a low bandwidth. The picture quality of the video is crisp using either a 720p or 1080p camera with wireless controls, which allow you to pan the room 360 degrees. VU has a partnership with Best Buy so clients can get a concession on display monitors (monitor is not included with system). The desktop mic picks up the human voice at 4400Hz and the presentation is carried over a secure server. Best yet the system can  be purchased out right at $2,000 or leased under a three years contract for 3yrs at $69 a month.

FYI: It makes sense to buy outright.


VU SystemVU is a great product for venue  presentations when you want to invite speakers from out of town with tight schedules, host a remote demonstration or engage with current or  prospective clients. VU has already captured 4% of the small to medium sized business market share  within the past seven months on the market.

Vu is definitely an exciting product for those looking to reduce over head cost  associated with meeting, travel and training. I encourage you to visit vutelepresence.com  to find out more.

Atlanta residents see live presentations of  Vu Telepresence to see how  their solutions might fit with your videoconferencing and Telepresence needs.
