What Is Video Conferencing?

  • Cameras (to capture and send video from your local endpoint)
  • Video Displays (to display video received from remote endpoints)
  • Microphones (to capture and send audio from your local endpoint)
  • Speakers (to play audio received from remote endpoints)

Modes Of A Video Conference:

  • Point - to - Point
    • - A video conference which connects two locations
  • Multi - Point
    • - A video conference which connects more than two locations through a Multi point Control Unit (MCU)

Why Not Use Skype For Your Video Conferencing Needs?

Many companies in Berkshire may think Skype is a better and easier video conferencing and web conferencing alternative and much cheaper. However there are many limitations with Skype.

  • Skype provides no enterprise security whereas the Berkshire Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution is completely secure and more suited for commercial use.

  • Skype does not allow H.239 data interoperability. H.239 allows for dual streams, giving participants the advantage to simultaneously see each other, see what all the other users are doing, and a presentation all at the same time, completely uninterrupted. Skype cannot do this. The Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution is built entirely on the H.239 protocol so allows full data interoperability.
  • Skype is not a scalable video conferencing software solution. Berkshire Avaya Scopia video / web conferencing for business is very scalable since it is built on H.239.
