Video Conferencing equipment is a communication device that allows two or more people at different locations to see and hear each other at the same time. The visual connection and interaction among participants enhances understanding and helps participants feel connected to each other. This goes a long way toward building relationships in a way that e-mail, telephone, or online chat systems cannot, supporting collaboration among traditionally isolated institutions. A video conference can improve retention and appeal to a variety of learning styles by including diverse media such as video or audio clips, graphics, animations, computer applications.
Video Conferencing can be connected from point to point or multipoint provided the devices used support the function. The basic devices of video conferencing are as follows :-
• Video Conferencing camera
