Making Video Conferencing More Accessable
Over the past decade, video conferencing has steadily evolved to become the must-have alternative to traditional boardroom video conferencing. Technology advances such as cloud services, ubiquitous network connectivity (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G), mobility and WebRTC (Real-Time Communications) are making video conferencing inexpensive and accessible, moving it closer to widespread adoption.
Today, scalability and affordability have extended boardroom video conferencing to other locations to meet the demands of a growing mobile workforce. Cloud-based video conferencing has enabled companies to realize the full benefits of video: face-to-face collaboration, efficient knowledge transfers and a degree of personal interaction that’s proven critical for businesses hoping to gain a competitive advantage. The coexistence of and, increasingly, the transition from expensive, boardroom video conferencing hardware to software-based desktop and mobile devices strengthen corporate agility, responsiveness and productivity.
