Free IP Video SoftwareBy: John Honovich, Published on Jun 11, 2009
The poll from our free IP video software report provided interesting results. Of 126 responses, over 50% said they sometimes or always recommend the use of free IP video software.
I am surprised that this number is that high but it does show the growth in acceptance of free IP video software in the last 5 years. In 2004, basically no one would have recommended it as there will little to no free offerings in the market.
The most common objection from readers is that free software is not good enough today. While I think that's largely true, the point is not about today but how that trend will grow in the future. The potential growth is what companies should be more focused on as they examine future plans.
