What are the basic things you need to know about
Technology can be a pain for most people but
to make technology useful can be an advantage. There are people who
dreaded the thought of sending emails just because they do not have the
basic computer and internet skills.
Ignorance is all in the mind; it is a mindset and
degree of ignorance depends on how afraid you are of technology and of
what it can do for you. Older people have this notion that they can no
longer adapt to new technology so they allow themselves to remain
ignorant of even the most simple computer operation.
Fear of technology can also happen to you if you
keep yourself updated on the latest technological trends. You will
never know how easy or how hard it is unless you try for yourself.
The newest thing to hit the technological world is
conferencing. This is a process by which two or more people can meet in
real time through the use of the internet. Real time means this two or
more people can communicate with each other as if they were physically
present although in reality they are in different parts of the globe.
Video conferencing allows people from two
countries and even time zones to see and hear one another through live
video and audio feeds. It makes use of a computer, an internet
connection, a video camera, speakers and microphones and a video
conferencing software or service provider.
The basic equipment necessary for video
To be able to conduct video conferencing, people
companies has to be connected to the internet. They must also be
equipped with microphones so they can be heard vividly by the person on
the other end of the line, a camera so they can be seen online and
computer software to enable them to communicate virtually.
Connection to the internet does not cost much. In
internet connection has become so affordable that internet shops have
mushroomed everywhere and home offices now have their very own internet
Video conferencing has proven itself useful for
businesses that rely on the internet for easier and a more efficient
communication system. The affordability and accessibility of the
internet has encouraged small business and even home-based businesses
to have their own internet connection enabling them to conduct video
conferencing right at the comforts of their own homes.
Where is video conferencing used?
Video conferencing has proven itself useful not
businesses but also to the academe. Through video conferencing,
learning institutions can offer online lectures with experts from other
countries, who no longer have to travel to deliver their lectures. This
has made knowledge sharing very affordable and efficient.
Companies can also improve their after sales
support through video conferencing because they can respond to customer
queries or complains in real time. They can also provide technical
support to their clients through web conferencing.
Video conferencing is a new technology that can be
useful to everyone, even to people who have relatives or families in
other countries. With video conferencing, business and personal
communication can be cheaper and more effective.
Video conferencing does not only promote
technology but it can also connect lives, people and families.
