The process has especially been challenging for health authorities; local and national health borads, emergency committees and such since they were initially presented with a huge dilemma; to contravene the regulations they posed and to ignore the advice they give to the public for the sake of public wellbeing, or abiding by the safety measures and risking the efficiency and speed of their own work. Added the possibility of the pandemic hitting one of the board members would cause widespread agitation in the public, further complexified the situation. Now, with Papilon’s VR-Based Conference System, the choice is clear as day.
Although video-conferencing is available through various apps, it is not viable to use these apps to connect national assemblies with hundreds of members or boards of court which might easily constitute a considerable crowd with counselors, judges, state’s attorney, juries, defendants, and plaintiffs. Video-conferencing with so many participants will end up in constant interruptions at best or prove to be a distracting cacophony. Moreover, in times of health crises, urgent action gives life and devoting a portion of our precious time to restoring image and sound would bear severer consequences than realized. However, it is also not viable to apply the same precautions to judicial and administrative bodies and health councils as this would severely limit their ability to function.
