Research Report on Teleconferencing; Volume 2.
Jull, G. W.; And Others
The Canadian Department of Communications project on teleconferencing commenced in 1972, to meet what was foreseen to be a developing federal-government need to provide improved group communications between headquarters and outlying divisions. Section one of this report presents background justification for investigating teleconferencing as a telecommunications service to substitute for some business trips. Section two reports Department of Communications teleconferencing activities, including systems evaluations, technical and behavioral studies, and preuse attitude studies. Section three presents results of an economic analysis of teleconferencing. Section four describes teleconferencing developments in countries other than Canada; conclusions from these studies are provided in section five. A summary of the teleconferencing situation is presented in section six. A tentative system to meet federal needs is described in appendix A. The costs of the project are included in appendix B.
