A video conference enables face-to-face communication between two or more people in different locations. Although there was a time when it was a luxury, today it is a necessity (for every business). But, there are several variations of it. From conference room systems and software to mobile apps and browser-based options, there are different ways to host and join a video conference. It really depends on the end users needs.
For example, if you want an option that does not require participants to download software, browser-based is the way to go. But, this is only one type of video conferencing solution. As the workplace continues to evolve, businesses of all sizes will invest more time and money into video-first technology. For this reason, it’s important to understand your options. Here we offer some insight on video conferencing solutions for users in a fixed location or on the move.
Rather than downloading software, participants join this type of video conference using a web browser. A browser-based video conference uses software called WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications). It supports audio, video, voice and data to be sent between participants. The best part, the technology makes it possible to hold video conferences without requiring users to install plug-ins or any other third-party software.
This is something you might need if you are concerned with employees downloading applications. In addition to this, it is also a great option when inviting external prospects and customers to a video conference. By inviting meeting attendees with a URL link, collaboration happens through a web browser with zero downloads required.
Mobile video conferencing is great for those who need to connect on the move. In fact, because it allows people to join via a mobile app, it doesn’t matter where they are. The key here is, making sure you use a trusted secure mobile app to connect. Not everyone can be in the room for every meeting, because of this, it’s important for every business owner to make communicating with your entire team easy. And, one way to do this, is allowing them to use the devices they are use to using. Be it a smartphone or laptop, you’ll be glad you offer more than one way to connect.
