What is Video Conferencing Software?

Video conferencing software provides users with a platform to perform two-way audio or video calls, conferences, webinars, and eMeetings, regardless of where the participants are located. These solutions have become especially useful as remote employees become increasingly common across various business industries.

There is a multitude of features that video conferencing solutions offer to enhance the calling and conferencing experience. These features can commonly include recording, screen sharing, chat channels, virtual whiteboards, calendar integration, and, for those integrating with a business phone system, SIP compatibility.

Additionally, there is a range of ways that video conferencing solutions can be delivered. A common variant is cloud-based, often standalone, systems that can be used from a computer or smartphone application. Another type, for users looking to set up a physical conferencing space, are telepresence solutions that often utilize dedicated hardware such as screens, cameras, or microphones. The final type, for those that want a more closely integrated solution, are those that run off of business phone systems, however, these solutions may have less overall capabilities than their dedicated counterparts.
