Introduction to Videoconference Solution:
Videoconferencing is an interactive tool that uses video, computing, and communication technologies to allow people in different locations to meet face-to-face and perform most of the same meeting activities they would perform if all participants were in the same room. Participants can be at two locations or many different locations, domestic locations or international locations.
Stanford staffs that use the videoconferencing service cite many individual and organizational benefits from the technology. Several that are mentioned often are:
• Increased participation - most Stanford videoconferences include multiple local participants. Many of these participants would be unable to take part in the meeting if travel was involved. Increased participation has meant more productive meetings and less need for debriefing staff who couldn't attend.
• Time saving - most Stanford videoconferences are two or fewer hours in duration. This means time spent getting to and from a meeting is often greater than the length of the meeting itself. Participants not only save this travel time, but the administrative time required to arrange travel schedules, make reservations and purchase tickets, reimburse expenses, etc.
• Cost savings - a one hour videoconference can cost as little as $125 for the Stanford participant. When compared to expenses associated with travel to short meetings, the savings can be great. When you further consider the indirect administrative costs associated with those items mentioned under time-savings, the savings is even greater.
• New opportunities - due to the time and cost savings mentioned above, some participants have been able to use videoconferencing to participate in activities in which they would otherwise not have been involved.
• More timely and frequent communications - when necessary, videoconferencing has allowed meetings to take place with little advanced notice and has allowed for shorter, more frequent interaction.
• Visual advantages - when compared to a teleconference (audio only), the visual aspects of videoconferencing make multiple participants less cumbersome to deal with. Participants also cite the ability to share graphics interactively as a key advantage over a teleconference.
