Unlike traditional conferences, participants can be located anywhere in the world. Yet, they have access to relevant documents via file and screen sharing. Web conferencing constitutes a key element for virtual cooperation in companies next to video conferencing (e.g., desktop video conferencing and mobile video conferencing). Preparing meetings in which participants jointly create or optimize presentations, introduce new software, review time, budget, or project plans; employees can join online conferences from different offices, different locations, or home. Commuting to conferences becomes no longer necessary. Every participant can conveniently join from their office.
For web conferencing, there are only a few technical requirements. Only a PC or a mobile device equipped plus an internet connection and speakers/ voice over IP is required. Participants can join from everywhere: from the neighboring office, their home office, or anywhere in this world. Consequently, web conferencing is a particularly economical, time-saving, and eco-friendly form of communication. Also, the video conferencing technology, installation, and setup costs for web conferencing are inexpensive.
A web conference’s technical requirements 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 a conference room’s equipment with a professional video conferencing system, including the necessary AV technology, the setup costs are low.
Web conferencing facilitates 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 discuss strategies, order lists jointly, or business reports live via content sharing. Along with video streaming, online conferencing also enriches the education sector. Currently, for educational institutions, webinars or training courses via web conferencing are gaining in importance. In medical institutions, video conferencing can be applied for training programs, workshops, or business meetings with medical specialists; or creating and discussing budget plans and reports in the hospital administration. Therefore, it constitutes a real benefit to the health sector.
