Recently Radvision presented
a good Webinar
titled "Voice and Video over IP Communications: Assessing and Improving User Experience."
Video deployment over IP is obviously experiencing a significant boom, but as you've not doubt noticed, the overall user experience does not always live up to expectations.
Radvision experts discussed "unique, no-reference, video measurement and analysis algorithms," according to company officials, passing onto viewers ways to improve the user experience for voice and video over IP communications.
Webinar speakers discussed factors that can affect video quality, different methodologies to measure video quality, Radvision's offerings in the area and other topics of interest.
According to presentations during the Webinar, the "expected Internet traffic volume for video calling in 2015 is 400 million TB." That's a lot of calling. And the market for IPTV video services will reach $26.3 billion by next year, 2011, and that's "not including advertising or value-added TV services."
Presenters included Eli Cohen, Radvision's director of product management, and the creator of the Radvision ProLab Testing Suite.
Cohen is primarily interested in creating and managing testing approaches for VoIP, 3G and video-quality-measurement algorithms. He's held various project management positions in Israel and France more than 11 years.
