What Is Avaya Video Conferencing in Cheshire?

A video or web conferencing solution in its most basic form is the transmission of image (video) and speech (audio) back and forth between two or more physically separate locations.


Components Of Web Conferencing and Video Conferencing Software:

  • 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 Web and Video Conference:

  • Point - to - Point
    • - A video conference which connects two locations (both web conferencing and video conferencing do this)
  • Multi - Point
    • - A video conference which connects more than two locations through a Multi point Control Unit (MCU) (web conferencing cannot do this)

Why Choose A Video or Web Conferencing Solution in Cheshire?

  • Ultimately it saves money. It cuts down significantly on travel costs, expenses and voice and video meetings can be held instantly with your staff anywhere in the world. Enable your workforce to solely use mobiles (get away from landlines), as mobile devices can be used for video conferencing at any time in any place (with WIFI or 4G).
  • 60% of Mid Market companies in Cheshire plan to adopt a video conferencing and web conferencing software solution. Companies without a web or video conferencing software solution in Cheshire will be left behind.
  • 46% said 2013 plans include adding mobile video clients. It's important to keep up with technology which competitors may be using.
  • Not having a competitive web conferencing business video conferencing software solution in Cheshire will put your company at a disadvantage by being unable to communicate effectively with other companies which do have a video conferencing software solution in place.
  • Video conferencing can potentially be done on any mobile or desktop device making it an extremely efficient and a user friendly means of communication, whether you are in the office or out and about.
  • Video conferencing can save significant costs: more companies in Cheshire see the need to video conference in order to save travel costs while still having vital face to face meetings. This is especially true for dealing with companies overseas.

Why Not Use Skype For Your Video Conferencing Needs?

Many companies in Cheshire may think Skype is a better and easier video conferencing and web conferencing alternative and much cheaper. However there are many limitations with Skype. Below are just some of the reasons why Skype is not able to compete in the business video conferencing software solution market in Cheshire:
  • Skype provides no enterprise security whereas the Cheshire Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution is completely secure and more suited for commercial use. Skype has well known security flaws and bugs and is very vulnerable to being monitored by un-authorised parties and companies which use Skype for their business video conferencing are open to malware attacks and having their documents and data stolen. (Recent reference: please click here for latest report regarding Skype vulnerability and threat.)
  • Skype cannot do group video on any mobile clients. There is no mobile client support for video group conferencing.
  • Skype does not provide any native room support whereas the Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution in Cheshire has full native room support.

  • 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. Cheshire Avaya Scopia video / web conferencing for business is very scalable since it is built on H.239.
  • Skype does not provide any device calendar integration. The Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution in Cheshire can provide full calendar and Outlook integration.
  • Skype is limited to 10 users. The Avaya Scopia video conferencing software solution allows up to 28.
  • Skype does not allow any moderation and control. Customers in Cheshire using Avaya Scopia video conferencing software have full control and moderation.
