Unlike traditional conferences, participants can be located anywhere in the world. Yet they have access to relevant documents via file and screen sharing. Next to video conferencing (e.g. desktop video conferencing and mobile video conferencing), web conferencing constitutes a key element for virtual cooperation in companies. Preparing meetings in which participants jointly create or optimise presentations; for introducing a new software; or for reviewing time, budget or project plans; employees can join online conferences from different offices, different locations or from home. Commuting to conferences becomes no longer necessary. Every participant can conveniently join from their office.
For web conferencing, there are only few technical requirements. Only a PC or a mobile device equipped plus internet connection and speakers/ voice over IP is required. Participants can join from everywhere: from the neighbouring office, their home office or anywhere in this world. Consequently, web conferencing is a particularly economical, timesaving and eco-friendly form of communication. In addition, the video conferencing technology, installation, and setup costs for web conferencing are inexpensive.
The technical requirements for a web conference are low: A PC or a mobile device with Internet access and loudspeakers or Voice over IP is required. Participants can switch from anywhere: from the neighboring office, from the home office or from a location in another country. This makes the web conference a particularly cost-effective, time-saving and environmentally friendly form of communication. In contrast to the equipment of a conference room with a professional video conferencing system including the necessary AV technology, the setup costs are low.
Web conferencing facilitates the internal and external communication in many sectors namely in the hotel, catering and trade industry. It enables participants of different locations or other branches to jointly discuss strategies, order lists or business reports live via content sharing. Along with video streaming, online conferencing enriches also the education sector. Currently, for educational institutions, webinars or training courses via web conferencing are gainin in importance. In medical institutions, video conferencing can be applied for training programmes, workshops or business meetings with medical specialists; or the creation and discussion of budget plans and reports in the hospital administration. Therefore, it constitutes a real benefit for the health sector.
