ZOOM VIDEO COM­MU­NI­CA­TIONS

Forbes - - Bezos Unbou -

Eric Yuan is ready to pre­dict the death of the con­fer­ence call. “I don’t think any­where will have just an au­dio call in five years,” he says. As founder and CEO of Zoom Video Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, a startup that o†ers video-con­fer­enc­ing soft­ware and hard­ware tools to more than 20 of the 50 big­gest busi­nesses in the U.S., and more than 90% of the 200 top col­leges, Yuan is doing his best to make that pre­dic­tion come true.

This fall, Zoom is an­nounc­ing new fea­tures to make its video chats eas­ier to an­a­lyze and to con­nect to other com­pa­nies’ apps. It will also de­but its own hard­ware prod­uct that com­bines camera, mi­cro­phone and soft­ware all into one, so busi­nesses can get go­ing with­out any help from IT. “We truly be­lieve video is the new world,” Yuan says. “We think ev­ery­thing should be on video.” —Alex Kon­rad
