Business is changing in a dynamic form for the better saving large corporates and small business money with the advances of modern technology developing our existing communications landscape. This can bring advances in business communications through making business more direct and personal bringing people together who work together on a daily basis but not in person. This ?therefore surely making business more simple as contemporary devices such as HD video conferencing/networking allows a new era for this ?new? communications channel.
We have all been mistaken that Video conferencing and networking is this new type of communication. Video Conferencing was first developed by the ?German Reich Postzentralamt? to us (The German Post Office) back in 1936 this new service then allowed callers to view each other on 8 inch square screens. In the U.S., Bell Labs demonstrated its first picture phone at the 1964 World?s Fair in New York. By 1993, AT&T had sold more than 20,000 videophones. ?Clearly this is lot if one is to look back with the view of how many people were technically minded back in 1936.
These efforts from such suppliers eventually failed because the costs were high, quality wasn?t great and the systems weren?t widely available to the mass market across the globe.
However the modern day has taken the same formula for this type of video conferencing but has re-structured from the original model making a variety of changes and add-ons. Evidently this has been helped/ aided with the internet and the recent increase in broadband speeds, intern the industry overcame those original hurdles faced in 1936. Now most people have some form video conferencing device pre integrated as standard on their computer! This enables most people to virtually connect from one side of the world to another for free using a variety of free video networking systems ?Skype? to mention one. Some of the many benefits of video conferencing are a reduction in travel down time and expenditure, enhanced internal and external collaboration and improved communications channels allowing for faster business operations.
Regardless of ?Skype? within business this and other ?free? types of software could be classed as a ?Mass Consumer Phenomenon? as although great for personal use when wanting to connect with one or a variety of business colleges/customers/suppliers. The ?free? types of video conferencing software available have been known to let businesses down providing poor quality viewing as well as not providing secure bridges in turn, putting your business at high risk exposing valuable information.
