Over the past few weeks, we have told you the benefits of videoconferencing. We’ve even given you tips to help you impress during your next video conference call. Still, you are hesitant. Why? You, like so many others, have fallen victim to some Common Misconceptions about Videoconferencing. These misconceptions could be holding you and your business back, keeping you from taking full advantage of available technology. So what are these common misconceptions?
Videoconferencing is Too Expensive
“Video collaboration is no longer restricted to big companies with big budgets, or confined to the boardroom or dedicated video conference rooms,” writes Avaya.com blogger Timothy Mak.
Videoconferencing is Too Complicated
In the words of Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” You barely have enough time to run your business, let alone adopt and learn a confusing, cumbersome technology. The only issue is that videoconferencing is neither confusing nor cumbersome. In fact, videoconferencing is easy to use, easy to learn, and easy to implement. That’s like a win-win-win!
Videoconferencing is Time Consuming
Joining a meeting for first-time users on Avaya Scopia takes users six simple steps, and less than 6-0 seconds. Even Sweet Brown has time for that. And the average video conference calls lasts just as long as a traditional conference call. The only difference: you can actually see who you are talking to. As they say, body language is 55% of communication.
Videoconferencing is Too Fuzzy
One of the biggest misconceptions about videoconferencing is that the video will be fuzzy and hard to make out. This is 2015, people! Avaya Scopia’s video display is high-definition, featuring crisp video quality, smooth user motion and enhanced resolution.
