Video conferencing is useful for connecting members of the press to news stories and people

Tuesday, September 20 2011

When it comes to international debates, the global population benefits from the participation of a wide variety of reporters, politicians and citizens. Press video conferencing has emerged as a way for individuals to voice their opinions on topics that impact people all over the world.

In 2007 the Panafrican Press Association (APPA) took a major step toward expanding this process when it sought new ways for its journalists to weigh in on international debates without having to leave their respective home countries.

Years later in the present day, the concept has taken hold in many countries where national debates require the presence of reporters and politicians. Rather than traveling long distances for debates, these people were able to use video conferencing technology to voice their opinions from their computer.

Companies such as MegaMeeting have the ability to provide institutions with the technology needed for press video conferencing. The benefits associated with improvements in technology can affect the entire world. Bringing people together and keeping them connected no matter their geographical location improves communication and makes the most out of the available resources.
