Your camera is on, your microphone and speakers are set, your connection is solid - but can they see your face? Proper lighting is the one thing that gets neglected in the preparation for a video conference call.
In the hustle of trying to get on a video call, most folks are happy just connect and have everything work! But to get the most out of the video conferencing experience, we have to properly showcase the one thing that only video can deliver – your lovely face.

A few weeks ago I joined the “Video Mile High Club." For those of you with the dirty minds, let me stop you right now... it was not what you think. I actually joined a Blue Jeans meeting from 30,000 feet above Colorado on Virgin America flight 352 en route to Boston to speak at a conference.

This week, we're excited to introduce just one of the many features that was part of our August release- our LinkedIn integration. In a fast-paced business world, LinkedIn is a helpful tool in connecting colleagues and business associates. To promote more workplace collaboration, we've integrated LinkedIn for easy sign-up and log-in. We've also enabled users to view a meeting participant's LinkedIn profile, right from the in-meeting participant list. You can read more about it in our product release notes.
Thursday is Spare The Air Day in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a conscientious Bay Area company, we want to encourage everyone to leave your car at home and experience how video communications can help out Mother Nature. There's no better time to give it a try than when nature gives you a nudge.
Working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. With more companies shifting to greener practices and others looking to expand their reach to other areas, video conferencing will become the norm for remote workers and occasional telecommuters. But concentrating while in the comfort of one’s home can be challenging with so many distractions close by. Here we offer a few tricks to help stay focused and productive at home as you would in any office.
At Blue Jeans our mission is to convert every audio conference to a video conference, but that doesn't mean that we believe that every participant in every video conference has to be on video. That's part of the elegance of our solution. You schedule your meeting knowing that each of your participants can select the best way to connect based on where they are, what they have access to, and what is going on at the time. Most people are going to choose video, because as we all know it makes for a better experience, but if for some reason they can't or don't want to, they can still join the meeting as an audio only participant.
