A videoconference is a webconference in which one or more of the participants is on live, streamed video to the other participants. Videoconferences require more extensive setup time to ensure that everyone has the necessary technology to be fully engaged, active participants,
Basic videoconferences use a single camera for the speaker/presenter broadcast within your branded webconference environment to all participants. The presentation can involve multiple, sequential speakers, with “camera power” transitioning from one person to the next.
Intermediate videoconferences use a web cam at each computer and enable multiple simultaneous video streams.
Advanced videoconferences use professional videographers to shoot high-quality images that are transmitted on dedicated connections to all viewers.
When is a videoconference necessary? Videoconferences are useful when it is valuable for attendees to see the speaker, such as an annual meeting, product launch, campaign announcement, or “preconference” keynote.
