Video Conferencing – Australia Basics
Australia Video conferencing is quickly becoming the method of choice for many business owners and entrepreneurs in Australia. In fact, in both Sydney and Perth there are now several well-established video conferencing services available to businesses who wish to participate in executive meetings, educational seminars or simply get together for an afternoon of video conferencing. By using these services, business owners have the ability to hold meetings around the country, from remote locations, without having to make long distance calls, or travel to each meeting.
While video conferencing services in Australia have been available for several years, it is only over the past few years that they have gained in popularity. With the explosion of high speed Internet in recent years, and the affordability of long distance phone calls, more business people are opting to meet with clients and/or business associates using video conferencing. The cost savings that result from video conferencing can be quite significant, especially when compared to traditional business travel, hotel accommodation and meals. There are even some video conferencing packages that allow participants to conduct group meetings that have the same type of interaction as those held in person.
Of course, as with anything else, there are a number of downsides to video conferencing. One of the most common complaints about video conferencing is that participants find it difficult to remember names or dates and may not be able to accurately recall information about past events. Also, if some attendees leave the meeting before the start time, others may not be able to join you. For this reason, it may be necessary for you to screen your participants before hand, or at least require them to confirm their attendance. Also, because of the nature of video conferencing, you should avoid allowing individuals who are known to be distracted or prone to poor judgment to attend. As long as you take all of these precautions, making and utilizing video conferencing in Australia can be an extremely valuable tool for business communication.
