Tired of the hassle of traveling across town or even across the country to participate in a meeting? How costly is it to bring the service technician from several hours away to look into a problem with your assembly line? How much time might you have saved if you could demonstrate your product with many people in multiple locations at the same time? Business can be defined in terms of time and money.
Video conferencing may be one solution to saving you both time and money. In fact, video conferencing may be a more effective way of communicating to your clients and customers. Integrated Network Systems can install video conferencing that will allow you to share anything that is on your computer monitor and also meet people face to face.
INS can answer your questions about using VoIP, HDTV, telephone and bandwidth requirements, what types of equipment you will need, and how your current hardware can continued to be used. Integrated Network Systems is a leader in video conferencing throughout Ohio.
What is Conferencing?
Videoconferencing is the conduct of a videoconference (also known as a video conference or videoteleconference) by a set of telecommunication technologies which allow two or more locations to communicate by simultaneous two-way video and audio transmissions. It has also been called ‘visual collaboration’ and is a type of groupware.
Videoconferencing differs from videophone calls in that it’s designed to serve a conference or multiple locations rather than individuals. It is an intermediate form of videotelephony, first used commercially in Germany during the late-1930s and later in the United States during the early 1970s as part of AT&T’s development of Picturephone technology.
With the introduction of relatively low cost, high capacity broadband telecommunication services in the late 1990s, coupled with powerful computing processors and video compression techniques, videoconferencing has made significant inroads in business, education, medicine and media. Like all long distance communications technologies (such as phone and Internet), by reducing the need to travel to bring people together the technology also contributes to reductions in carbon emissions, thereby helping to reduce global warming.
Benefits of Conferencing
- Reduced travel costs
- Increased productivity across dispersed workforces and teams
- Support for environmental initiatives (it’s “green” technology)
- Improved hiring and retention of top talent
- Sustained competitive advantage
