What is Video-conferencing?
A video-conference (or Video Conference) is a live video connection between people in separate
locations for the purpose of communication or interaction. Video-conferencing allows people to communicate visually from anywhere in the world.
Uses of video-conferencing include:
- Distance Learning
- Sharing lectures with students at other universities
- Job Interviews
- Giving and receiving lectures/presentations from remotely located sites from around the world
- Conducting meetings between research groups and academics based at different universities
We have even conducted video-conferences between UCL and astronauts on
the orbiting International Space Station (ISS), so no place is too
remote for a video-conferencing link-up.
you hold regular meetings involving a substantial amount of travel, you
might appreciate the benefits of holding some of them over a
video-conference link. Benefits include:
- Reduces Travel Expenses
- Saves Time
- Increases Productivity
- Increases Collaboration
- Improves Communication
- Allows Multi-point Meetings Across Time Zones & International Boundaries
