4K video is the next step in high definition video conferencing, but are enterprises ready to adopt?
When high-definition (HD) video hit the conferencing market, enterprises were eager to drop standard definition in favor of the clearer, sharper images of HD. Now video conferencing providers are going one step further with 4K video, which has four times the resolution of 1080p.
But the question is whether enterprises are as eager to adopt 4K as they were for 720p and 1080p HD. According to Andrew Davis, senior partner at Wainhouse Research, the answer is no — at least not for a few years.
“Bottom line is this won’t be mainstream technology for three to six years, maybe even longer,” he said.
