Blurring the Lines between Countries with Desktop Video Conferencing

June 4th, 2015

Historically, language and time zone barriers have made face-to-face meetings in different countries a necessary expense for conducting business globally. In the past, running a global business meant actually traveling physically to various countries in order to perform business conferences in person.

Consequently, this required a significant amount of additional preparation not only for the travel itself but also for the actual meeting. For businesses with a strong international presence, this can result in a lot of extra time and money spent just to get business done.

Fortunately, desktop video conferencing has eliminated the required costs for arranging physical meetings in different counties. Furthermore, desktop video conferencing has practically erased the barriers between countries themselves. While desktop conferencing does not resolve all of the issues associated with multi-lingual meetings, it does go quite a long way in terms of reducing many of the major hassles associated with those meetings.

There are two primary challenges that most businesses face when hosting an online conference with participants who speak different languages. Desktop video conferencing can help to reduce both challenges.

Language

Although language barriers do still exist, if you are using online or desktop video conferencing,  those barriers become much easier to handle when all of the tools are presented in the participant’s native language. For instance, with R-HUB web conferencing servers, you can have a multi-lingual interface. What this does is allow everyone who is in the conference to be able to use all of the various tools that R-HUB web conferencing servers provide without running into any language blocks.

This helps to smooth out the process of multi-lingual conferences and makes them more productive. There is no longer a need to wait to have a conference until you are able to have a translator available. At the same time, you can rest assured that everyone attending the conference is able to benefit from much clearer communication without the worry over potential miscommunication.

Time Zone Differences

Because various countries are in different time zones from others, online video conferencing can eliminate the time zone differences via the use of recast, recording, and replaying. The original meeting can be recorded and replayed for attendees at convenient times in accordance to their relevant time zones.

These attendees can still interact during the meetings as if they were attending it live and experience the same viewing quality as the original meeting. No longer is it necessary to schedule conferences at certain times in order to coincide with business hours in other countries. Everyone is able to attend at the time that is most convenient for their local business hours, thus helping to boost productivity.

By implementing online or desktop video conferencing, your organization can maintain a global presence while saving both time and money.

R-HUB web conferencing can help you to continue to break down country barriers for effective business communication. Contact us today at 1-866-758-0984 or email us at sales@rhubcom.com for more details on our desktop video conferencing services.

How Important Is HD to Desktop Business Video Conferences?

March 31st, 2015

build_trust

Desktop video conferencing has rapidly become a vital tool for businesses around the world. By reducing the need for travel, desktop video conferencing software offers a time-saving and cost-saving solution that allows businesses to connect with clients and partners from around the world. Additionally, it offers an opportunity to communicate in a more personal manner, while enhancing internal communication. While there is no doubt that desktop video conferencing offers a number of important benefits, you might wonder whether it makes a difference if your desktop video conferencing is broadcast in HD.

The Difference HD Makes to Desktop Video Conferencing
HD desktop video conferencing can enhance your business communications in three important ways:

Improved Client Meetings
Meeting a client face-to-face is an excellent way to form a long-term relationship and build the foundation for resolving any work issues. HD Desktop Video conferencing offers a high quality image and sound solution, ensuring that your video conferenced client meetings will feel as though you are actually in the same room with your clients. In this case, the difference between HD and SD is the difference between being able to communicate only adequately and being able to communicate in a way that generates long-term relationships between your business and your clients.

Attention to Detail in Training
Corporate training is among the most useful methods for utilizing desktop video conferencing. With that said, if the screen does not provide perfect image and video quality, it becomes difficult for employees to learn in an effective manner. With HD desktop video conferencing, every employee you train will be able to see every element of their training, ensuring they are able to perform work tasks to the best of their ability.

Improve Internal Communication
Internal meetings are an integral part of every business, regardless of industry, because they offer a productive method for resolving business problems while providing a vehicle for steering campaigns in the right direction. Meetings facilitate improved working relationships because they provide immersive experiences. If SD desktop video conferencing is utilized for a meeting and there happens to be an image distortion or the sound quality is only average, it is impossible to replicate the immersive experience of an in-person meeting. HD desktop video conferencing provides a true in-the-room feeling for meetings, ensuring that business issues can be resolved and employees are able to be more productive.
