Many companies who have yet to make the move to include Video Conferencing in their office tend to be in one of two categories:
1. They see Video Conferencing as being extremely high tech, and worry that it will require upgraded Internet and need a tech guru to run it.
2. They see Video Conferencing as being very low tech, with jerky video, grainy picture, and frequent breakdowns.
We’re happy to say that neither of these myths are true of modern Video Conferencing for business.
Video Conferencing is easy to use – it’s just like using your TV – and is easy to set up. And with high definition video and sound provided by many Video Conferencing solutions – it will be “just like being there”.
Most high-end Video Conferencing solutions won’t require you to upgrade your Internet, as long as you already have a business-level subscription in place.
For Video Conferencing with our company, Vesta Networks, Video Conferencing requires 1Mbps of data – well within most business’s Internet subscription plans. If you’re experiencing higher than normal volume on your network, the video will automatically compensate, however the compensation is still of excellent quality. For instance, at 384 Kbps, you’re still seeing Cable TV quality video – light-years better than anything you’ll get at the consumer level.
So as you can see, Video Conferencing, though high tech, is now extremely easy to use, and is accessible to companies of all sizes and types. Users get crystal clear audio and video, with the ability to set up conferences at the push of a button.
