When it comes to communicating with people you work with, there are many different ways to do so. There is the traditional method of face-to-face communication, as well as a phone call, email or messaging. But, what about web and video conferencing? Both are relatively new modes of communication, but what are they exactly?
The terms web conferencing, or web conferencing with multiparty video, this generally means that software and online services that provide a live, computer desktop sharing environment, including built-in audio and video for you to communicate with. For historical reasons, the terms IP-conferencing, or IP video are used too (the term IP refers to the TCP/IP protocol used over the Internet).
Once the web conferencing software is installed on a central server, or activated as an online service, all that is required is a standard Windows PC, web camera, high-speed Internet connection and any web browser. To utilize the VoIP feature, an audio headset is recommended. The conference attendee joins the conference with a simple mouse click on a conference link, which is usually sent in an email or instant message. You are then instantly connected via video to begin your conference.
