What is Video Conferencing?
Video conferencing is a live, visual connection between two or more people residing in separate locations using computer networks to transmit audio and video data for the purposes of communication.
A point-to-point (two person) video conferencing system works like a video telephone with the users’ voices being carried over the network and delivered to the other’s speaker together with the image.
Multipoint conferencing on the other hand allows three or more participants to sit in a virtual conference room and communicate to each other as if they were sitting next to each other.
Benefits of Video Conferencing
For businesses, the most significant benefits of video conferencing include savings on travel costs and expenses, optimised attendance, increased productivity and improved project times because of speedier communication between employees.
