What is Video Conferencing?
Video Conferencing is a collaborative communication tool which allows several individuals or groups to communicate in real time across distances using the data network to transfer packets containing audio and video. Video teleconferencing uses the voice network for this same purpose.
The centralized videoconferencing service offered by CIS is geared towards general meetings, presentations, interviews and/or project work sessions.
