High Speed Video (HSV), a provider of software video communications company and Hire Disability Solutions (HDS) have joined together to help veteran’s with disabilities find employment. The joint venture took place at the HDS Global Veterans Career Expo in NYC this past May. HSV’s video conferencing technology (ClearVision) was used to conduct hundreds of video conference interviews during the event. The virtual expo continued afterwards across dozens of military bases in the US and across the world.

The video conferencing consisted several virtual meetings and interviews using HSV’s desktop Telepresence solution, and ran across multiple locations at the same time. The virtual career hiring fair worked by deploying 5 desktop based terminals at the Expo, that simultaneously connected with the other locations throughout the world at military bases with fully secure, high definition two way video conferencing. The parties could then have 1-1 conversations or multipoint video conferencing sessions. The various locations required no advanced equipment other than a desktop or lap top computer with a web cam.

“It is indeed gratifying to see a leading technology provider like High Speed Video support the rehabilitation of the brave men and women of our armed forces,” said Colonel Curley, a disabled Veteran and former aide-de-camp to General Normal Schwarzkopf, and currently The Chairman of New York States for VETS.
