Web conferencing and desktop sharing

Thursday, October 7 2010

Video conferencing technology has allowed people who are separated by hundreds or even thousands of miles to communicate with each other quickly and effectively. Whether its a business transaction or just a conversation between friends, video conferencing technology has made it possible to have a face-to-face conversation with anybody, at any time, anywhere in the world, with just a computer and a camera.

Web conferencing makes the process even easier. Using web conferencing technology, two people can make eye contact with one another via web camera from anywhere on Earth, as long as they have a computer, a camera and an internet connection. Of course you know that web conferencing makes face-to-face networking possible - but do you know what else it can do?

Using web conferencing technology, two people can also share desktops. This has great potential for businesspeople, who can share documents, spreadsheets and other media in real time with just the click of button. It can also be a useful tool for friends and families who use web conferencing, as they can use desktop sharing to swap photographs, creative work, notes and other personal items without having to send them via email. Since desktop sharing can show anything that's on your desktop, it's also a great way to share websites and videos.
