Video conferencing set for take-off? - IT Week
For years now I have had my own web tv studio at home which also is used for videoconferencing. The studio can connect to up to 9 conferences in different countries at the same time. This was needed a couple of years back during the SARS crisis when delegates were unable to travel.
Skype has now introduced a new video option which is easy to use and is proving a useful tool in linking teams around the world.
Old style conferencing was in board rooms and had users experienced frequent technical difficulties. New style is always available wherever you are as an add-on to voice calls.
Expect rapid growth of video calls as part of virtual team work.
