Subject Re: Teleconferencing options for speakers who cannot attend
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 13:57:31 GMT
It really depends on two things IMHO.

1) Technology even if using broadband isn't always reliable if it
comes to ConfCalls especially if many people are joining the call and
there's an increasing background noise
2) To some degree the high quality experience of a face to face
conference may deteriorate in a way if you start to virtualize things.
So you could consider this a reputation issue in terms of quality.

So the co speaker as a driver could work as a workaround cause he
would be driving the talk. At least that was the idea...
