Video Conferencing

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, video conferencing tools were often used by office workers, but they weren’t as integral a part of day-to-day operations as they are now.

In the last few years, using video conferencing solutions – and unified communications — has become second nature to both the workforce and student body. The widespread adoption of this technology has enabled quick and efficient communications across multiple locations and platforms, from virtually any equipped device.

Why are video conferencing solutions important?

With a huge portion of the workforce now working in remote or hybrid roles, video conferencing solutions are a vital part of your communications toolkit. The right video conferencing tools will allow on-site and remote staff to catch up, collaborate on projects, present to clients, and work together in real time, regardless of location. Today, these solutions are central to the success of your business, so it’s vital to ensure that the tools employed by your organisation are appropriate, fully secure, and fit for purpose.

Video Conferencing and Unified Communications

Most video conferencing solutions now centre around unified communications platforms, and some of the most popular options amongst the modern workforce are Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet and Cisco Webex. But to really make the most of this technology, your meeting room set up must be kitted out with the necessary AV equipment, including cameras, microphones, and interactive screens. It’s worth noting that some video conferencing manufacturers design technology is optimised to work best with a specific unified communications platform – so it’s important to make the right choice.

When you’re choosing a video conferencing solution, you’ll need to consider the working model your business or organisation uses. Companies that encourage hybrid working are more likely to have flexible workspaces, and these offices require technology able to support their unique needs – with facilities like collaboration and huddle spaces.
