The Solutions for Video Conferencing with the Best High Definition in 2017

November 18th, 2017

High video quality is a must in today’s video conferencing world, as in a virtual meeting our image conveys a good  70% of communication through body language and other non-verbal signals. In my review, I will introduce the reader to what are the best HD video conferencing products in 2017 in my opinion

Appearance is one of the most common worries of the user of video conferencing product. This does not come as a surprise, as everybody is well-aware of the importance of looking fine in the media-dominated society of today. But behind this concern, there are less futile reasons than the desire of looking beautiful or handsome:  our appearance reveals much more than we wish through a complex set of messages that is called non-verbal language and reaches up to 70% of communication during a face-to-face meeting.

So, how to look great on the screen? First, it is important to have a good monitor with HD resolution and a good connection. Second, it is also important to use a good HD video conferencing product. The combination of these two requirements creates the final outcome we are looking for.

Assuming that we have good screens and good connections, what are the best HD video conferencing solutions to complete our equipment? In my opinion, the remarkable products of 2017 are:

R-HUB`s TurboMeeting (http://www.rhubcom.com) , a suite of on-premise servers for video and audio conferencing, remote access and support, live streaming. It is the latest technology available for real-time collaboration, with an astonishing frame delay cut down to 3 seconds only that makes TurboMeeting the fastest available solution on the market.

HD is well supported, and bright and sharp images and crisp audio are ensured in almost any condition of operation. You can connect up to 30 web cams and enjoy functionalities like resizing and support to different display formats. Telepresence is supported up to 8 monitors, with flexible layouts.

Prices are very convenient, as R-HUB`s servers range from 995$ of a basic HD video conferencing model up to 2995$ for the most powerful all-in-one R-HUB`s servers. R-HUB`s flat license policy allows users to add as many participants as they wish to a conference, without the fear to spend an arm and a leg.

GoToMeeting (http://www.gotomeeting.com) is a popular HD video conferencing software that is particularly well-suited for professional purposes. It has reached the first position in terms of customer satisfaction because of its simplicity and its being purposely designed for organizations and businesses.

In comparison with TurboMeeting, however, GoToMeeting suffers from severe limitations. The number of participants per chat room is limited to 100 guests, against 3000 of R-HUB`s HD Video conferencing servers.In the free version, registrations are not allowed, and the most useful functionalities of a virtual conference (like polling and registering) as well.

ezTalksMeetings (http: //www.eztalks.com) is the self-proclaimed global leader of HD Video conferencing. It offers a software-based solution, which means that you have to download and install on your pc their software. Prices, functionalities and performances are similar to R-HUB`s TurboMeeting, at the point that we could say that exTalks is a kind of software based version of the first. However, in my opinion TurboMeeting is easier to use because of the intuitive design of its many apps, one for each purpose. Another point for TurboMeeting is the safety level of on-premise server based video-conferencing solutions, which is considered to be the highest possible.
