Global - Services - Teleconferencing and Business TV


Archived report. This report was archived in 2005 and has not been updated. Videoconferencing has been around since the late 1970s, but has failed to penetrate beyond the corporate world. Even here there are still a large number of systems that have been installed over the years but are hardly ever used. Audio-conferencing has been far more successful; especially since more enhanced voice services have been introduced during the 1990s. The future will be broadband-based video communication in the residential market. This will include tele-health consultations with local GPs and specialists, family gatherings across the country and across the world, home videos, etc.

Purchase with Confidence

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
