Title: Web Conference vs. Video Conference

  • With the popularity of video conferencing
    industry, people are always confused with the
    common term of web conference and video
    conference. Hence, I'd like to explain them in
    following 2 parts.
  • Part 1 Definition of Web Conference and Video
  • Web Conferencing
  • It is a handy umbrella term for several types of
    convenient online collaborative services to
    include webcasts, web seminars ("webinars") and
    peer-level web meetings. It is a conferencing
    form of real-time collaborative system in which
    two or more computer users, all with internet
    connected, see the same computer screen at any
    time in their web browsers. It may however be
    used in a narrower sense referring only to
    meetings of specific peer-level web context, in
    an effort to disambiguate its meaning and purpose
    from other collaborative session types.

?Video Conferencing Known also as
videoconferencing or videoteleconferencing, it is
facilitating a video conference through a set of
appropriate telecommunication technologies that
allows two or more computer locations to
communicate simultaneously by two-way audio and
video transmissions. This method has also been
referred to as visual collaboration and is a
certain type of groupware. Videoconferencing is
designed to serve a conference or multiple
locations rather than individuals.
With the introduction in the 1990s of high
capacity but low cost broadband
telecommunication services, coupled with video
compression techniques and powerful computing
processors, videoconferencing has made important
inroads in medicine, education, business, media
and more. Part 2 Differences between Web
Conference and Video Conference First of all,
one of the identified leading drivers for
web/video conference is the need to upgrade
traditional voice-only conferences and calls as
they both employ the multiway communication
concept and attempt to establish a more
productive and engaging experience. As to the
differences, check the paragraphs below. ?Web
Conferencing This technology was designed as a
functionally-upgraded audio bridge completed with
pictures which has made it possible to share
presentations with other audio participants
located anywhere around the globe. What's more,
its features of presenting video and recording
also support information dissemination from one
to many. It's quite useful for small-scale
meeting, but on the whole, it lacks the essential
features expected with collaboration tools by
today's savvy users. ?Video Conferencing
This technology, on the other hand, provides
everyone a face and a seat at the meeting which
is purposely designed around collaboration. The
best solutions concentrate on facilitating
communication in many different ways that people
meetinstant or scheduled, in multiple languages
or on any device. Unlimited rooms and conference
rooms can be instantly set up with reliable
ezTalks video system, which also enables you to
easily connect to other conference rooms as well
as various remote users on smartphones, tablets
and laptops. In addition, participants can even
share their screens with the group! Simply put,
if what matters is the meeting itself and the
importance of collaboration, you'll probably
prefer the audio quality and high-definition
image which can only be provided by video
conferencing. On the contrary, web conferencing
works best for broadcasting a simple speech made
by a single speaker to a normally large audience.
However, if dialogue, reliability and quality,
are very important to you, nothing really beats
video conferencing.
