Langham Place opts for video-conferencing

Langham Place Hotel has introduced video-conferencing facilities at Portal - Work & Play allowing local and international organisations to connect to 300 world-class video conferencing business centres and hotels around the world.  Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong aims to establish yet another benchmark with the introduction of videoconferencing.  Globalisation has brought the world closer together and with it the need to find new and more efficient ways for businesses to communicate.  “Video conferencing is now an accepted and necessary tool for doing business in the global community, so we felt it was very important to establish our own facilities to provide an additional service to our guests,” comments Jeffrey Van Vorsselen, general manager.

Ideal for worldwide corporate events, training, HR interviews, business meetings, annual corporate results announcements or press conferences, the videoconferencing facilities represent the latest technology with the ability to support multiple participants and locations across the ISDN, IP and PSTN networks. 

With outstanding video quality backed by local service provider PCCW’s dedicated line and carrier grade equipment, as well as a powerful platform compatible with a host of protocols to guarantee seamless connection, even participants without the necessary equipment can join the conference by using one of the compatible global business centres.

Additional add-on options including VCD recording and VIP monitoring services are also available to maximise meeting efficiencies.
