Teleconferencing is a method of participating in a meeting from different parts of the country and abroad with a computer audio-modem-video device using a telephone connection. Many separate conferences are required for the directors of other branches of the same organization or office bearers.
Everyone has to come together at a particular time, for a specific place in the meeting. Meetings can be held from different locations through telecommunication to know the details of the work, opinions, submission of reports, decision making, etc. can be made. This method is called a teleconference.
With teleconferencing, a group of people from different places can meet in a meeting without coming to the same place. A small group of a few or a large group of many people can meet at this meeting. A single person sitting at home can be a member of the forum. The session can be attended from different parts of the country and abroad with a computer audio-modem-video device using a telephone connection. Teleconferencing is also known as computerized conferences or CC.
Mori Turf invented the method in 1975. During President Nixon’s administration, teleconferencing systems were introduced in the United States to control inflation quickly. According to Baird, the teleconference hall is a bit of an electronic bulletin where participants send messages to the central file for other participants to read. Bulletin Baird is where anyone can access a computer, modem, telephone, and suitable software, but teleconference is regulated in three sections.
The conference may be open to all (public meeting), open a group of locks with a specific password (closed session), or it may be restricted so that anyone can view the minutes. Still, only participants can comment on the message (read-only conference). According to Bulletin Baird, not everyone has to communicate simultaneously in a regular teleconference, so the process is like electronic mail.
Another method of teleconferencing allows participants to engage in face-to-face conversations. It uses video cameras along with other equipment.
This method is called video conferencing. Simply put, video conferencing is a series of interactive telecommunications technologies that allow you to connect to two or more locations through uninterrupted two-way audio and video broadcasts. It is also called ‘Visual Collaboration’ by some and is a form of groupware.
But it is different than the videophone. Because videos can be shared individually through video phones and video conferencing, everyone from different corners can continue to talk to each other in a group, from different positions. This approach has created new possibilities for communication. Currently, video conferencing is being used extensively in the education and health sectors in addition to business.
In this way, Ragi can talk directly to an experienced doctor who is far away, known as telemedicine. This is a constructive way to increase productivity by making quick decisions by saving travel time, staying, eating, time.
The widespread use of teleconferencing is also seen in various television channels these days. People from different walks of life participate in introductory talk shows simultaneously for the benefit of this technology. It is often seen that essential people from other countries are having their conversations simultaneously, which could not have been imagined before. And all of this is the contribution of information technology.
