Conducting a conference between two or more participants at different sites by
using computer networks to transmit audio and video data. For example, a point-to-point
(two-person) video conferencing system works much like a video telephone. Each participant
has a video camera, microphone, and speakers mounted on his or her computer. As the two
participants speak to one another, their voices are carried over the network and delivered
to the other's speakers, and whatever images appear in front of the video camera appear in
a window on the other participant's monitor.
Multipoint videoconferencing allows three or more participants to sit in a virtual
conference room and communicate as if they were sitting right next to each other. Until
the mid 90s, the hardware costs made videoconferencing prohibitively expensive for most
organizations, but that situation is changing rapidly. Many analysts believe that
videoconferencing will be one of the fastest-growing segments of the computer industry in
the latter half of the decade.
