Title: What Is Web Conferencing?


1
Web conferencing enables its users to hold live
meetings, conferencing, presentations and
trainings with the internet as its medium. With
this service you can choose real-time
point-to-point communications or multicast
communications from one sender to many receivers.
The basic idea of this communication platform is
to stream data like text messages, voice or
video call or chat across the wide geographically
located places. Web Conferencing
Definition According to the definition given by
Cambridge Dictionary, web conference is a system
by which many computer users can communicate with
each other all at the same time using webcams
over the internet. So what is a web
conference? It enables voice and video
conferencing. Support screen annotation, polling,
speaker management, chat discussions, shared
whiteboards are some of the platforms that are
also used. Now with the help of a web browser you
get access to web browsing platforms, but to get
access to all the features you need to download
as well as install. The main purpose is to
conduct business meetings, seminars,
presentations, online education and even offer
direct customer support through remote keyboard
mouse control.

How Web Conferencing Works
About web conferencing and how it works is simple
to understand. Companies can opt to purchase
conference software or carry the meeting
themselves or choose a specific hosting service.
If you opt for hosting services they will provide
you the software and server space for conducting
the meetings. In both ways you must have ample
server space and bandwidth to carry out the
functions effectively. Now, depending on the
type of software you can choose any of the
following options ?Slide show presentation
like Power Point. ?Send pictures or videos
through web cams ?Write or draw on white board
and explain using a mic ?Enable screen sharing
using the moderator's computer desktop ?Use audio
chat to ask or reply to questions Tools used
for web video conferencing ?XML, HTML and ASP
markup ?Java scripts ?Flash animation ?Instant
messaging ?Streaming audio and video What Is Web
Conferencing Used for? If you check about web
conferencing programs on the internet, you will
find numerous options available to you. Chat and
instant messaging is the most common form of host
text-based group discussions. Higher level or
more sophisticated level uses web cams and video
streaming to share documents online. Some uses
computer and internet based system while some
use telephone based system for audio content
distribution. ezTalk is one such popular host
which can enable to boost your business by
connecting with over hundreds of participants.
As one of the most innovative platforms for cloud

video conferencing, ezTalks Cloud Meeting
provides rich features, such as HD video
audio, innovative whiteboard, instant screen and
content sharing, cross platform chat, control
and management, recording and playback, and so
on. Understanding a conference bridge Now a
conference bridge allows the participants to be
connected over the phone call. This requires a
virtual meeting room and a phone line to make the
call. A meeting of such type can hold dozens of
participants but in case of a three way calling
you will find only a total of three
participants. Companies usually prefer this
method as the cost of travelling and time can be
saved. And they have to just pay for the one on
site meeting cost. Features ?For a conference
bridge there will be an administrator to assign
DID numbers to the respective conference
room. ?Some participants can be secured by a pin
number while some use a common pin number all
the users. ?A graphical user interface is also
used in the case of advanced conference system
and allows you to see and know who has joined the
conference. ?In special cases dynamic meeting
rooms are also created which is for huge systems
where capacity is an issue. The Bottom
Line With the advance in technology, it has
become possible for companies to create a virtual
space enabling easy means of communication. This
is an important requirement in the current
scenario as time and money is something which is
not available in plenty. Staying connected with
people has also become easier and participants
can join from anywhere at any time across the
globe. Be it a small, start up or big business
chooses web conferencing as you can start up any
meeting faster than any other conferencing
method. With better communication, you can find
out the problems and resolve them within a

short span of time. This is a very positive step
as this greatly enhances the productivity of the
organization. But it has been found that small
businesses are moving towards web-based
conferencing platforms that do not require
software download. The major reason for
companies opting online meeting over traditional
conferencing is the time factor which is a major
concern for all. https//www.eztalks.com/video-co
