“Economic woes in Europe, declines in public sector spending, and a shift toward lower-priced video conferencing products drove sales of video conferencing and telepresence equipment lower from the year-ago quarter”
“Economic woes in Europe, declines in public sector spending, and a shift toward lower-priced video conferencing products drove sales of video conferencing and telepresence equipment lower from the year-ago quarter,” notes Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.
Machowinski adds: “We view the current revenue slowdown as temporary rather than a fundamental decline in demand, as overall shipments of hardware endpoints are still up by double digits year-over-year, signaling on-going strong demand for videoconferencing capabilities.”
