Virtually there – a brief overview of the trends in virtual conferencing.
At DIB Audiovisual, we’ve been installing high quality cameras, microphones and screens for video conferencing for a long time.
But never in our history have we witnessed so many dynamic changes in such a short time.
In this article, we are reviewing some of the key trends in virtual conferencing, video streaming and we also ask the questions about how this is changing the way we work and interact.
Let’s start with the statistics on virtual conferencing from Forbes
- 45% of teams use video calling tools daily or weekly
- 80% of employees use video calling for 1:1 meetings
- 78% of employees say they use web conferencing tools for team meetings
- 75% of CEOS say that video conference calls will entirely replace audio-only conference calls
But how do we fell about it? Surprisingly positive:
- 87% of remote team members say that they feel more connected to their colleagues with video conferencing.
- 36% of employees say that they would choose remote working opportunities over a pay-rise.
- Studies show that 94% of businesses believe access to video conferencing improves their productivity
The past area we would like to discuss is productivity.
The main issue with virtual conferencing is quality of sound, video and internet speeds.
Whilst we can’t necessarily help with internet speeds, we can certainly help you with the quality of sound and video.
Choosing cheap products will cost you more than what you save in lost time. Having to repeat messages because they weren’t heard, or poor sound or low resolution video – it all adds up to a frustrating experience.
The team at DIB have access to a wide range of the best conferencing and streaming products on the market. And we’ll help you choose the right mix of products for your room, situation and usage requirements.
Professional design and installation will ready you many times over.
