Benefits of High Definition Video Conferencing

Video conferencing comes in many forms, from free peer-to-peer services such as Skype to top of the range dedicated systems. The latest High Definition video conferencing options take it to another level without necessarily costing more money, and there’s a solution for every budget. But what exactly are the benefits of high definition video conferencing, and how can you access it?

Perhaps the biggest benefit of high definition video conferencing is the crystal clear image. As with HD TV, HD video conferencing lets you see every detail of the picture. This means that misunderstandings happen rarely and communication is much easier as there’s no chance of missing those subtle gestures and expressions that we give away in our body language. You can also use the high definition quality image to show even the tiniest details in your products, documents, plans and 3D drawings.

High definition video conferencing also gives you outstanding audio – again it makes communicating over distances much less frustrating as you hear every word and don’t have to keep asking people to repeat the question.

Another benefit of high definition video conferencing is the frame rate is faster – normally 30 frames per second. This gives a much smoother picture and reduces lag, so you really can conference in real time, without the annoying problem of having to wait for the video to catch up with the action.

And high definition video often means you can display the images at a larger size, even full screen – which makes the whole experience of video conferencing far more interactive and immersive.

When you put all the benefits of high definition video conferencing together, the overall advantage over standard video is that it really is the next best thing to face to face communication.

But how do you access high definition video conferencing? Surely the systems are very expensive?

That’s not the case at all. In fact, as the technology develops, purchasing a high definition video conferencing system can cost as little as £3000, about the same as a standard definition one. And there are other solutions available too, that don’t involve a high initial investment. For example, LifeSize have cloud- and server-based solutions like Connections and ClearSea that let you access and deploy high definition video conferencing quickly and easily without needing expensive equipment.
