Basic Videoconferencing Technology

Videoconferencing connections may be limited to a closed network (such as a LAN) or may use public networks (such as regular phone lines). Many connect via ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) because it is an economical solution for high-quality videoconferencing. ISDN works over regular copper telephone lines, transmits at a minimum of 128 Kbps per line, and provides dedicated bandwidth for smooth audio and video (15-30 frames per second). The preferred rate for events is at least 384 Kbps.

In contrast, an Internet-based connection shares or competes for bandwidth with other Internet data, which may cause audio clipping or delays resulting in jerky video on slow networks. Many schools, libraries, and other institutions are developing high bandwidth networks and are experiencing better results with IP videoconferencing. Many believe that Internet will eventually replace ISDN as the medium of choice for videoconferencing.

Benefits

As an interactive communication medium, two-way video stands out in a number of ways. First of all, it's almost like being there. 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.
