What is Video Conferencing?
Video conferencing uses telecommunications of audio and video to
bring people at different sites together for a meeting. This can be as
simple as a conversation between two people in private offices (pointto-point) or involve several sites (multi-point) with more than one
person in large rooms at different sites. Besides the audio and visual
transmission of people, video conferencing can be used to share
documents, computer-displayed information, and whiteboards.
H.323 (protocol of how the packets of content travel between points and how cameras and networking
components communicate with one another) describes how video conferencing
operates over the Internet (TCP/IP or just IP, just like how your
desktop computer communicates). Multipoint Conferencing Units
(MCUs- Bridging) handle the traffic flow in multi-point video
conferences
Why video conferencing?
a live conversation is needed;
visual information is an important component of the conversation;
the parties of the conversation can't physically come to the same location; or the expense or time
of travel is a consideration.
Examples of how video conferencing is Used by Customers
Meeting were vendors or contractor are in another cities and travel is expensive
Advisory Committee and Stakeholder Meetings
Training – Where interaction is required yet the trainees are located all over the state, country…
Classes and Distance Learning – Students, Teacher, Special Content
Interviewing candidates for open positions in your organization
To be part of a process – testimony is court, Judge, DA’s and Inmates
Services from a central point to people in different locations – counseling and medical advice
Agency or Division meeting where not all staff can attend
What do You Need to Conduct a
Video Conference
Basics
Network Bandwidth (standard vs high definition) and security clearance
with firewalls to connect with the other parties (video firewall)
Bridging Services (3 or more parties in the conference)
Camera with Speaker
Display (TV)

“Much of my (political)
participation now comes via
(Polycom HD video)
teleconference, a “low carbon
emissions” way of working .”
- Al Gore
“With the growing emphasis
on…green policies in
corporations, video conferencing
is now seen as having a direct
effect on lowering a company’s
carbon footprint.”
- William Stofega, IDC
“Using (video) conferencing
and collaboration
technologies can make a large
contribution to the goal of
carbon neutrality.”
- Alan Greenberg, Wainhouse
Research
Are Companies Buying It?
Trend is Clear



32.9% of companies increased
collaboration tools usage due
to carbon impact concerns
28.1% have a carbon
emissions policy
26.3% say carbon policy is
coming in next year
“…the next several years will
see a deepening of the
necessary tools and
understanding.”
Wainhouse Research, August 2007
Polycom Customers Speak for Themselves
“To reduce our air miles, we have made a
substantial investment in (Polycom) phone
and video conferencing and now have new or
upgraded facilities in all of our major offices.
Last year we were able to avoid 1.1 million
miles of travel through use of telesuite
facilities, thereby avoiding the emission of
198,000kg of CO2.”
- PWC Corporate Statement
“The initial investment (in Polycom video
conferencing) is easily justifiable,
ultimately increasing productivity. It’s not
only protecting the environment, but is
common sense for businesses to adopt.”
- David Rowe, CEO, Easynet
Considerations for Green Meetings
Determine Existing Meeting and Travel Patterns
Identify What Groups Could Use Video and Voice
Conferencing as Alternative Way of Meeting
Identify Applications Where Video and Voice
Conferencing can be Applied for Virtual Meetings
Establish a Network Plan and Bandwidth
Requirements to Support Communications
Determine how Virtual Meetings will be Hosted,
Scheduled and Managed
Identify Needs to Record and/or Stream Meetings
for Personnel to Participate at Later Date
Identify Support Services to Maintain Equipment,
Manage the Network, etc.
Determine Method for Measuring CO2 Reduction
