When picking a video conference service, a company should find lots of features prior to making a purchasing decision.
- Meeting participants: You need conferencing software that could support the most number of users you are going to need in a meeting at once. Some services limit the amount of attendees to under 10, although other suppliers have solutions that could accommodate a few thousand at one time. This is especially important for enterprise video conferencing.
- Video stream: as well as limiting the amount of users in a virtual meeting room at once, some providers also limit how many video streams may be on simultaneously. If you would like everyone on your meeting to be on camera, be sure that the video conference service you choose can support that number of feeds.
- Video and sound quality: Does the movie service supply high-definition video feeds? You likely do not need production-grade video, but you also don’t need a video feed that’s grainy or blurry. The video quality should be great enough so it is not a distraction to people on the opposite end of the line. Moreover, you need a service which offers excellent audio quality. If those in the assembly can not hear you, the high quality video won’t make a lot of difference. Make sure that the video and audio feeds are in good working order when picking conferencing systems.
- Dial-in: even though you might prefer that everybody joins your meeting by video feed, there are times when that may not be possible. In those cases, you desire a conference service that gives participants the choice to join by telephone so that they can at least listen to the sound.
- Display sharing: A enormous advantage of cloud-based video conferencing is the ability to share files, spreadsheets, presentations or anything else you’ve stored on your PC. Most services permit the meeting’s server to talk about their screen, and some services enable anyone in the meeting to talk about their screen, also. When a meeting is scheduled, instructions for joining the meeting are automatically uploaded to an email, and details of the meeting will also be put on your calendar.
