There is a growing market demand for an easy to use and fully integrated video conferencing solution that works seamlessly across a company’s existing video platforms – from individual video-enabled apps to fully dedicated telepresence rooms to and mobile devices like Smartphones and Tablets. Additionally, growing use of video for remote collaboration is increasing network bandwidth demands and making implementations more complex.
In both the personal and business world, VoIP video conferencing is typically performed between PCs. This usually requires that both end-users utilize a webcam that has either a microphone attachment or a microphone that is built in. It often requires requisite software. Recently, many mobile applications have come to market that allow video conferencing using VoIP technology on a tablet or smartphone.
While many individuals utilize free applications including Skype, there is usually an additional fee charged for placing a video call when more than one other participant is involved. Businesses often use a reputable VoIP provider to handle their video conferencing requirements to allow high numbers of end users to participate. This high number can be in the hundreds, all with access to a video connection at the same time.
- Inclusion – When employees are telecommuting, they can still participate in every business meeting and have the ability to both hear and see everything happening. Details are better explained and comprehended, and businesses can avoid the need to transport employees every time a meeting is called.
- Developing a VoIP Conference Room – Businesses have the ability to create their own virtual conference room. This might include microphones in the ceiling that can capture available audio from any location inside the room. The room can also be set up to offer a variety of displays that everyone can hear and see to maximize participation.
- Multiple Cameras – By utilizing multiple camera angles at the main room holding the business meeting, every remote employee can see visual aids, the speaker, charts and any other necessary component of the business meeting.
