As globalization continues and competition intensifies, a significant number of small- and medium-sized enterprises face the need to improve communication efficiency. Traditional hardware video conferencing solutions are often not up to the task and can be prohibitively expensive for many enterprises.
At the same time, user experience and security remain important factors when evaluating the newer generation of software video conferencing solutions. We developed a high-quality, easy-to-use and cost-effective video conferencing solution tailor-made for small- and medium-sized enterprises to address this market demand.
- Company headquarters frequently need to communicate with their branches. This market is defined as typically having up to eight branches and a need for multiple branches to have concurrent conferences
- Video conferencing quality requirements are relatively high, particularly in terms of stability, audio-visual quality and the ability to share content
- While many branches have basic conference management requirements, they may not have IT or administrative personnel on site. Therefore, they require the operation and administration of video conferencing to be simple
- Endpoints need to be suitable for a wide variety of environments, including small and large conference rooms, desktops, mobile endpoints, and more
- Devices must be compatible with mainstream video conferencing platforms to meet the conference requirements of upstream and downstream partners.

What is video conferencing
Video conferencing is two-way interactive communication delivered using telephone or Internet technologies that allows people at different location to come together for a meeting. The video conference can be as simple as a conversation between two people in private offices (point-to-point) or involve several sites (multi-point) with more than one person in large rooms at different sites.
A basic video conference setup has a camera and a microphone. Video from the camera and audio from the microphone is converted into a digital format and transmitted to a receiving location using a coding and decoding device, often referred to as a “codec”.
At that receiving location is another codec device that decodes the receiving digital stream into a form that can be seen and heard on monitors or televisions. At the same time, video and audio from cameras and microphones at the received location is sent back to the original location.
What are the benefits?
Video conferencing saves travel time and money. Participants can see and hear all other participants and communicate both verbally and visually, creating a face-to-face experience. PowerPoint and other on screen graphic, as well as other cameras are also available presentation options. People downtime is reduced and productivity gains are achieved by removing the logistics of flight preparations, airport delays, hotel stays, and all the other inconveniences of business travel. In distance education, video conferencing provides quality access to students who could not travel to or could afford to relocate to a traditional campus. Video conferences can also be recorded and made available in a variety of ways, e.g., DVDs, streaming video. Besides distance education, other applications include meetings, dissertation and thesis defenses, telemedical procedures, and online conferences.
People use video conferencing when:
- a live conversation is needed;
- visual information is an important component of the conversation;
- the parties of the conversation can’t physically come to the same location;
- the expense or time of travel is a consideration.
Any Etiquette for Video Conferencing?
- Allow a few minutes for setting up and shutting down the video conference.
- Stick to time limits.
- Remember to mute your microphone when you are not talking.
- Consider using a location banner.
- Take turns speaking and allow time for audio delay.
- Don’t multi-task on camera.
- Be aware of possible audio distractions if your microphone is not muted – coughing, paper shuffling, air conditioning units, laptop and projector fans, phone ringing, etc.
What is a bridge?
A video conferencing bridge (also called a Multipoint Control Uni or MCU) is a hardware system that is able to connect multiple videoconferencing systems together into a single conference.
A video conferencing bridge receives digital video and audio signals from codecs in a designated conference, processes and resends digital video and audio signals back to all the codecs. Multiple conferences involving many locations can be conducted simultaneously. Many bridges can provide advanced features such as continuous presence, people plus content or dual streams, transcoding, and transrating.
