Benefits of using a visualiser with video conferencing

Video conferencing can already be a rich communication experience. However the benefits of using a visualiser with video conferencing means you can have interactive, dynamic conversations where everyone is able to discuss products, documents and plans wherever they are located.

Video conferencing is a great way for businesses to maintain regular contact with overseas staff, global partners or remote workers. It has many benefits, such as reducing a company’s travel costs and carbon footprint, increasing available time and productivity and creating a better work-life balance for staff. However, there are occasions where video conferencing falls short of a face to face meeting. If you need to discuss complex schematics, for example, or demonstrate a new product, or compare two components in close detail that’s impossible to do over video – isn’t it?

Actually no, it’s not impossible. One of the main benefits of using a visualiser with video conferencing is that you can show detailed images of documents, photos and even 3D objects in real time, over the video conferencing system. You can manipulate the objects too – rotate them, turn them over, write on documents or zoom in to see the smallest detail. And because you show objects “live” using a visualiser there’s no preparation needed and you can change objects as you go along, meaning the conference can be as dynamic and interactive as if you were sitting in the same room. You can even combine your visualiser with an interactive whiteboard such as a SMART board, giving you more features such as the ability to highlight and write over whatever the visualiser is displaying.

Ah, but you can do all that with presentation software like Powerpoint, you may be thinking. Well, yes, to an extent you can. You could spend hours photographing objects, scanning documents and creating slides to show during your conference call. But your presentation is fixed – if someone asks to see the back of an object and you haven’t already taken that photo, you’re stuck.  If someone needs to examine a chart that you have in your briefcase but didn’t think to include, it’s going to take a lot of messing around to let them see it. The beauty of using a visualiser during your video conference is that you can react to anything in the discussion immediately.

The benefits of using a visualiser with video conferencing are huge for both businesses and educational institutions. Manufacturing companies can instantly demonstrate new products or do quality control checks on components without having to visit the factory. Design companies can see samples, fabrics and colours and make decisions instantly. And dissecting a frog has never been as interesting now that you can do it live on camera and let your students watch – whether they’re seated in the classroom or watching from the other side of the world.

There are many benefits of using visualisers with video conferencing but the biggest one is that they enhance the video conferencing experience completely. If you would like to find out more about visualisers or see a demonstration, give us a call on 0118 336 0010 today.
