Making the best use of Zoom
One consideration when selecting a video conferencing system is the video conferencing system compatible with your current network. It may be necessary for a company to update certain types of software or hardware in order to hold a video conference. A benefit of using Zoom video conferencing is that it offers the option to integrate Zoom Meeting with a company’s current technology, helping to reduce costs for many companies. For companies looking to reach a broad audience, through using a video webinar, Zoom allows a company to have up to 10,000 attendees or to integrate videos with YouTube for the ability to have an unlimited audience. Zoom also recommends the use of Logitech hardware for the best quality of video and sound, while still being affordable.
The second consideration when selecting a video conferencing system is, how will the system be used by employees. Will meetings be held between only a few employees at a time, or will meetings need to be conducted with larger groups in attendance? Do you need to schedule these meetings in advance, or do you need to be able to start them at a moment’s notice? Zoom Meeting allows options for businesses to be able to conduct a meeting with:

Lastly, a company needs to determine if their video conferencing system needs to have the capability of recording a video conference, and if so, what additional platforms are necessary for this feature to be utilized. Zoom Meetings allows for two different recording options. By recording to the cloud, Zoom Meetings automatically records all video, audio, and meeting chat text in the Zoom Cloud. The meeting can then be downloaded or streamed to view again at a later time. This feature is ideal for allowing meeting participants who are not in attendance to attend the meeting at a later time, reducing the need to reschedule a meeting, and allowing the team to continue to work on a project. A local recording feature also allows for Zoom Meetings to store video and audio files for a meeting on the host computer or onto a company’s shared network drive. This feature allows for future participation, but also allows for companies to demonstrate products for vendors or customers and upload videos onto a streaming server for others to view. With all the different options available, undoubtedly Zoom offers a variety of options to meet every business’s video conferencing system needs.
