Conferencing

Benefits of conferencing

  • Teleconferences allow low-cost connectivity between multiple sites using traditional phone lines.
  • Video conferences provide real-time, face-to-face communication between distant locations, such as VCU Medical Center and the Inova campus or the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center. National and international videoconferences with multiple participating sites are possible using IP and ISDN connectivity and a state-of-the-art conferencing bridge.
  • Web conferences provide computer screen sharing between two or more locations while using traditional telephone lines or voice over internet (VoIP) for voice communication.
