What is video conferencing?
Video Conferencing allows businesses to connect with their global partners effectively. It is a central cloud hosted infrastructure which routes calls and transmits videos and presentations in real-time between endpoints.
For companies who operate on an international scale with an array of partner time zones, maintaining smooth and convenient communication with colleagues and customers is of high importance, both locally and on the far end.
Without a universal platform, organising long-distance calls presents problems with global partners unable to connect with ease. Beyond key issues of poor call quality and increased costs, services such as Skype and WhatsApp remain outright banned in crucial territories, which can prove a major hindrance to the goal of bridging the gap. AVM Solutions has solutions which includes dynamic face tracking and high definition audio quality means the message itself is not lost.
Having a conference room which is equipped with state of the art technology can ensure that online meetings are less stressful and more productive. Screen sharing, file sharing and audio video solutions can all be made easy.CONTACT US

4 Benefits of video conferencing software
Choosing our solutions will revolutionise the way you deliver communication in your business. Good communication is effective for business productivity. Let’s look at some of the amazing benefits of using our video solutions;
1. BETTER ATTENDANCE
Do key members of your team struggle to take part in a conference call from time-to-time due to their location? You won’t have that problem anymore with a video system. You can invite people to your conferences no matter their location. Also, you can interview through a live video connection, which saves on time and promotes productivity.
2. LOWER TRAVEL TIME AND COSTS
Long gone are the days when you had to travel across the country for a business meeting. With video-conferencing equipment, you can instantly connect to anyone, anywhere. This is one of the key benefits of promoting business productivity.
3. BUSINESS PRODUCTIVITY
A survey on Forbes shows how video-conferencing can and will generate more productivity in your business. Being able to communicate faster will ensure your business is efficient and will match the productivity of any other business in your niche.
4. RETAINING EMPLOYEES
Does your business have remote-based employees? Although working from home is seen as a comfortable option, it is still good to have close relationships with other members of the team. Therefore, being able to have video calls will keep a healthy work-relationship between team members. Also, this will again promote business productivity.
VIRTUAL MEETING ROOM
Cloud-based VMR (Virtual Meeting Room) can serve as a powerful medium to link colleagues together no matter their hardware, forgoing the reliance on traditional methods of video conferencing software. In practical terms, this means that meeting participants can join the Virtual meeting room through whatever means are most convenient. For instance, attendees are invited through a custom link, which presents several methods of joining the room – be it a web browser, standard phone call or video conferencing client of their choice.
This allows full control as the host and can schedule meetings to be live streamed onto their YouTube channels, opening up the possibility of an unlimited number of live viewers, but also as a means of recording sessions for future playback.CONTACT US
UNIVERSITY OF BOLTON CASE STUDY
For the physical AV, a large 70” LED display was installed in Meeting Room 1, ideal for accommodating a large number of on-screen meeting participants simultaneously.
Underneath, a Polycom EagleEye™ camera transmits a crystal-clear HD image and wide field of view for coverage of the whole room, including the flexibility to pan, tilt and zoom to focus on particular attendees or items of interest.
Crystal-clear sound is one of the most important factors for a successful meeting, and particularly given Bolton’s extensive international presence, reducing the physical barrier of distance through unobstructed, easily-understood communication reinforces this need even more. Given this, AVM chose to implement a 360-degree, ceiling microphone array that would ensure speakers can be heard no matter where they may be seated in the room. Inbuilt directional audio technology allows the mics to ‘zone in’ and isolate an individual local participant, so they can be heard as clearly as possible.
Due to the unpredictability of the infrastructure in place for those on the far end, it was important to fit a speaker that would allow for maximum audio clarity and perceptibility. For the benefit of the local faculty, a high-powered soundbar with DSP processing brings out the detail in sound from external participants.
Next, a crucial consideration for the University’s meetings is the ability to present one’s screen. Accomplishing this should be as simple as possible without having to mess with cables or installing additional software. For this reason, AVM opted to include VIA GO – an easy to use, plug and play, wireless presentation system. All the user has to do is connect the USB touchpad into their laptop, run the portable program and press the button – content will now be viewable on-screen; ready to present locally or through the VMR during a call.
Powering the video conferencing equipment itself, and aware of the University’s requirement for consistently smooth calls, AVM commissioned a Polycom RealPresence Codec. The benefit of this being the inclusion of a dedicated port, enabling higher-bandwidth calls than would be possible through a standard browser.
Finally, for Meeting Room 1, a wall keypad was fitted to control powering the system ON and OFF, switching between Video Conferencing software and Wireless Presenting and volume control.
