What is Videoconferencing?


A videoconference (also known as a videoteleconference) is a set of interactive telecommunication technologies which allow two or more locations. Video conferencing provides real time video and voice communication between terminals, usually employing dedicated systems in a Conference room setting. Video conferencing may also be accomplished by using a webcam and personal computer, when it is usually known as Desktop conferencing. Videoconferencing uses telecommunications of audio and video to bring people at different sites together for a meeting. This is a new form of communication.



What is Videoconferencing used for?


Videoconferencing is used for communications to one another. This is a new and hip form of talking and allows you to see the person in which you are talking to. Using this concept of communication allows you to talk to more than one person at a time and also gives you the opportunity to add entertaining backgrounds while talking with your buddies. The backgrounds are selected by you and is just another perk to videoconferencing.
