Online video conferencing


Published on

Web Based Video Conferencing Services today are far reaching and extremely powerful tools.

Web Based video conferencing is transforming the way businesses and executives are communicating everyday! Skype and Google has both come forward with Free Solutions for multiple-participant video conferencing. Other companies like Vidtel and Bluejeans have made it possible to use cloud based services to call traditionally impossible places such as Cisco and Tandberg SIP/H.232 end-points! Gartner estimates that by 2015, there will be 200,000,000 desktop endpoints – a 1000-fold increase in just 4 years – and this prediction doesn’t take into account tablet and smartphone form factors.

So what does this mean for the 21st Century business? High Definition, highly secure and highly advanced video conferencing solutions are only the fraction of the cost they were 5-10 years ago!
