Advantages & Disadvantages of Using Video Conferencing

by Srija Ghoshal SEO Expert

Video Conferencing is the end-point solution for all the sectors wherever we plan to use it. It is the technology that is always ready to help us with its different aspects. Scientists had analyzed that people are getting addicted by using so many technologies at a time, which has an adverse effect on our health now a days. Now it is time to think, which is the better form of life - using technologies to reduce physical exhaustion or being exhausted by traveling for business dealings else using a combination of both of them.

Humanists will say it is better to make tangible visit rather than depending on technology. But the fact is, it is very hard to maintain work-life balance simultaneously. Responsible persons become tired by repeated visits and delivering demo for their products or services.

One more question can be raised in this context. Why we are running for Video Conferencing Technology while we can connect our clients over phone or internet calling?  A virtual presence can give warmth to the business relationships. Most advantageous feature is you can notice the body language at the other end. It becomes easy to take prompt decision if multiple users can be in one single conference. Even deals can be signed through iPen. Recently in India a big deal has been signed over video conferencing. Both of the representatives were there in the conference. They discussed, observed the demo and decided to sign the deal on board.

The main Advantages of Video Conferencing is it can be installed in any location if the broadband connection availability is there. Minimum requirements of 256 kbps broadband speed are enough to make a good High Definition conferencing, which is cost effective also.

The main disadvantage of using Video Conference is the user using more and more technologies that makes him lazy, which is the main reason for depression. Then one can ask. Does the solution provoke us? We can’t deny it. 10 years ago, when we were not much habituated with computer and broadband technology, there was a minimum and maximum working time for every person. In today’s world there is no such timing for the job or using technology. We are using Video Conference in offices to fix the deal with clients. After coming back to home also we are using it to connect with our friends and relatives who are far away from us.

Therefore, perception matters here. One will take the technology as it is his primary necessity where the critics will find out the thousand flaws for the same. The conclusion is, it is always better to adopt technology for the betterment of your work-life balance.
