Why choose video conferencing Systems?

Business video conference systems have become an integral part of the workplace in almost every industry. With the advancements in video conferencing equipment, and the general rise of wireless networks and smart mobile devices, video communication is now widely accessible and an integral part of the way many businesses now operate.

With busy working schedules and increasing demands on time, it is often not practical to get everyone together in a single place for a face to face meeting, as per traditional video conferencing rooms. With cloud-based video conferencing solutions it is simple for employees and clients to actively participate in a meeting regardless of their location.


Businesses choose video conferencing equipment for a number of reasons, most commonly:

  • Ease of large participation
  • Connecting dispersed staff - reduces travel costs
  • Exterior participants can easily join
  • Fast response, quicker decisions
  • Presentations can be made to distant clients

Software based video conferencing solutions, such as Skype for Business, Google Hangouts and Cisco WebEx, are frequently chosen soft codecs which are suitable for small meeting spaces or huddle rooms. The soft codecs are flexible and fully mobile, and depending on the level of platform you deploy, they are fully interoperable across all platforms and other video conference systems (the obvious exceptions are Skype & Google Hangouts, but a soft codec solution from Starleaf or Blue Jeans can dial into a Polycom or Cisco system at a client’s office).

  • If your meeting room video calls have a large audience or occupy a big space, then the soft codec alone will not suffice on a laptop or PC. The video conferencing system will require further equipment in order to expand, hardware required will include; Professional microphones and audio DSP’s to handle the multitude of audio inputs and outputs without creating echoes and distortion on the call.
  • Video switchers and scalers for video inputs.

The alternative is a more traditional Cisco virtual meeting room system, with professional PTZ cameras, such as those provided by Zoom, codes employed in the room for some of the call management, and native microphones and DSPs from the solution provider built into their hardware.


The soft codec platform also has the capabilities for large scale deployment, for example in conference rooms & halls, so long as the correct hardware is installed alongside to deliver a professional solution. A soft codec is just the start; the potential of video conferencing is vast but to achieve this, appropriate equipment must be installed. Without relevant hardware, businesses may encounter issues with audio, such as echo sounds or an unclear picture, making content sharing and communicating difficult. Ensuring that your video conferencing system works seamlessly makes interacting easier, reflects well on your company and can help your business reach the next level.
