More and more organizations are realizing that we are now living in a world that is so highly connected that people can be miles and miles away from each other and still be connected and work effectively together. Video collaboration tools play a big role in enabling effective communication regardless of distance. The ability to see colleagues and not just hear their voices has been shown to boost team morale and collaboration. It also results in participants paying more attention and being more engaged during meetings.
Why Use Video Collaboration?
Here are some benefits that video collaboration offers your organization:
- Stay Connected Even When On-the-Go
Important situations often come up when they are least expected. For most organizations, flexibility is critical for growth. The secret to new business or professional relationships is having the ability to communicate with people even when you're on the go, which is made possible by mobile devices. Using mobile video collaboration tools helps you build a reputation as someone who is accessible and always ready to connect.
- Give Your Workforce Flexibility
All types of business require people to meet and collaborate. However, it's not always physically possible for everyone to be present in the same room at the same time, especially now when more people are working outside of the office. Video collaboration resolves communication gaps between dispersed parties, allowing employees to participate in meetings wherever they are. For employees with other important commitments like family or school, online video collaboration tools also offer great flexibility that allows them to be productive at work and balance it with their personal life, which is very important to employee satisfaction and retention.
- Keep Long Distance Relationships Strong
An important part of the success of an organization is the strength of relationship of its people and its relationship with its partners and clients. With online video collaboration tools , distance is not a factor to maintain good working relationships. It enables people to meet and work together in the most convenient way – virtually, at any time and place – creating an efficient and effective approach to doing business. The face-to-face element of video collaboration brings a personal touch to meetings, which makes interactions richer.
- Break Down Cultural Barriers
A global distributed workforce is becoming the norm. This may already be a reality in your own company or perhaps in other organizations, your partners, vendors or clients. Awareness of cultural differences and showing respect to other cultures is crucial in collaborations. With audio only conferencing, so much meaning can be lost or misinterpreted since audio is only one component of human communication. Video collaboration, on the other hand, allows participants to see each other's body language and to take in social cues, which are crucial elements of effective communication and understanding.
Why Blue Jeans Video Collaboration Tools?
Blue Jeans leads the industry in providing interoperable video collaboration services that allow:
- Better integration of audio participants.
- Web conferencing and content sharing with dual stream support.
- Integration with iOS and Android mobile devices.
Blue Jeans delivers an interoperable global conferencing platform that makes it easy to schedule, host and take part in meetings regardless of how people connect, whether from traditional conference room video systems, web browsers, mobile devices or landline phones.
By combining best-quality audio and video, including rich content sharing, Blue Jeans helps organizations create video collaboration video conferencing experiences that allow people to do more together. Many conferencing technologies offer great video conferencing but lacks content sharing features and vice versa. The Blue Jeans approach treats these two components as both important for effective video collaboration, offering the option to share content between participants across a wide range of endpoints.
While effective video collaboration tools must enable both interactive communication and content sharing, the truth is there is no one-size-fits-all answer because each meeting has its own unique requirements and each participant has different restrictions and capabilities. Solutions that attempt to provide both conferencing and content sharing but end up only prioritizing one and restricting the quality of the other are nothing but inferior.
With dual HD stream support, Blue Jeans video conferencing solution is the first to deliver simultaneous video and content sharing capabilities without loss of quality or performance of either element. Share different types of content across the widest range of meeting platforms. Everyone will see the shared content onscreen without losing live video streaming of the group. This is important during discussions to prompt more participation and discourage multitasking during meetings, which affects concentration and performance.
In addition, Blue Jeans video conferencing service also includes a built-in chat feature to enable commentaries, quick reminders and side conversations without interrupting the flow of discussion. Layout controls are also available to control on-demand the shape and size of windows and zoom in/out on the content.
