Video Conferencing 101
People are hardwired to communicate more effectively when they are meeting face to face. The hand gestures, facial expressions and stances we use when talking are natural and something we’re used to seeing from others.
Video conferencing restores our capacity to fully communicate with one another. This technology bridges the divide that occurs between communications and productivity when people chat through only email or telephone.
Through video conferencing solutions, people are seeing each other again and having more natural conversations, boosting engagement and overall efficiency.
