For almost a decade, organizations have trumpeted video conferencing as a viable way to ratchet up communication and produce a more effective environment. A decade ago, video conferencing and Telepresence systems required add-on cards inside PCs and separate cameras and integrated services digital network (ISDN) lines to function effectively. Now-a-days all these complexities have been avoided by most of the organization by endorsing the software based Video Conferencing.
The traditional Video Conferencing systems often counter problems such as jitter, latency and packet loss, this issue shows a direct impact on the performance. These systems are not compatible with all kinds of network connections and cannot run under low bandwidth.
As a check master for all these issues organizations are investing in a web collaboration technology that drafts a platform for organizing the work progress virtually and shrink the development life cycles. Today the world is running behind software based video now made software, these systems are composed of most advanced collaboration technology, through which the users can share applications and documents with the far located people instantaneously.
Today there are numerous vendors who offer multi-point systems that provide high-definition video and audio on all kinds of networks. Multiple physical switching is the most advanced technology in the Video Conferencing trend. These multiple physical switches are embedded in a single logical unit and are used to deliver fail over within microseconds.
Let us elaborate the scenario of the physical switching; “if a system goes down, then another system in the cluster can run the transmissions without any performance down falls. Some of the software Video Conferencing Solutions offer switching at the access point, to find the shortest distance path for sending the data over the network and to sustain the connection at all the times. This will drastically minimize the jitter and latency.
Today, even a mobile phone and tablets are turning to be platforms for conducting virtual conferences. The video conferencing software can be easily and instantaneously, installed in any of the mobile devices and the users are free to attend the virtual conferences even during the time of travel. Apart from audio/video conversations, the corporate people can perform information sharing as a word document, PDF, multimedia file, graphics file etc.
The traditional video conferencing was only restricted for audio/video communication and doesn't have any interactive features, as of software based video conferencing. Bandwidth was also a major concern in the hardware video conferencing, very huge bandwidth is required to execute the virtual meetings without any performance lag. If it's a case of software versions, bandwidth is not an issue, within very low bandwidth one can run virtual conferences.
The features and functionality of the software based video conferencing has made it a modern solution for business collaborations. This solution is successful to reduce the organization resources in terms of the travel time and expenses. This in-turn enhancing the performance of the organizations.
