What is a Video Conference?

Video Conference is set of telecommunication technologies which allow conferences between two or more participants over distance, by the use of computer networks, to transmit two way audio and video data. Connecting to a video conference requires a webcam, a microphone, a monitor, a sound system, a codec for audio/video compression and of course, connection to a network.

Point to point video conferencing works in a similar way using video telephones, VoIP or PSTN lines that might be employed by the conferencing system. Video Conferencing protocols are governed by the ITU-TSS Standard H261 and its successors.
