As a picture is always worth than a thousand words, so a crystal clear Video Conference is dramatically better than a phone call. But while enterprise video conferencing via specialised VC rooms and board rooms is a powerful solution, those without access to this infrastructure have had to make do with ‘consumer grade’ VC tools (like Skype and Google Hangouts) which aren’t as reliable.

A new generation of video conferencing software is bringing the benefits of both these approaches to desktop PCs, by combining the low cost and flexibility that Soft-VC offers and the high-quality and reliability platform of enterprise VC.

One such example is Polycom’s RealPresence Desktop video conferencing software, which is a powerful application that allows customers/clients to interact with each other from a desktop PC. It extends high-quality desktop video conferencing well beyond the usual boundaries of conference rooms, allowing employees and individuals across the enterprise to interact with each other.

The software provides easy-to-use HD video conferencing, HD voice, and content collaboration to individuals at all levels of the organization. It provides the power of high-definition, face-to-face communications to your personal workspace, whether they are in the office, at home, or on the go.
