Video Conferencing and The Enhancing Features of Cameras

 Its a wonderful experience when we can participate in a conferencing sitting at our   own desk.  The amazing technological development of Video conferencing helps us to see, converse and take decisions just by a click.  Conferencing using Video Conferencing technology  is much focused on  visualizing people.  It is mainly intended to look at the person and catch the body language and have a clear idea of the conversation which  helps in taking right decisions.  When it comes to visualizing having a clear picture quality plays a prominent role. Bad quality cameras produce clumsy and blurred pictures  with poor quality which makes conferencing confusing and ends up with lot of distraction.   Thanks to the revolutionary  developments in the technology which provides us with  HD video cameras, CCTV cameras and  Web cams which can be the part of important Video Conferencing Session. 
High Definition Video Cameras 
Using High Definition Video Cameras enhances the picture quality as the picture is displayed in 720p /1080p, The main idea being to present a better picture quality.  When a Standard Definition screens are used to visualize the video of High definition the result many not be felt as the picture is squeezed to fit into the Standard definition. A picture in a Standard definition uses 480 pixels where as a High Definition uses 720 to 1080 pixels on the screen in turn presenting a better quality picture.  Using   High Definition cameras is always preferred as the conferences held are at most important and clarity of the picture as we can see the facial expressions of the participant whether he is angry, frowning or whether he is attentive or not while in the conference.  
PTZ cameras:  

 The usage of PTZ cameras in Video conferencing improves the functionality as it  can be moved by a  remote control or other interface(hardware or software), With the PAN(left to right) movement we can view the participants from left to right, by using the  Tilt( up and down) we can view up and down and the Video can also be Zoomed in and out by using Zoom option.  We can as well use the feature to pre program to follow specific patterns to continuously monitor an area.  These functionalities of the PTZ camera gives the organizing committee to have a closer and broader view of the conferencing.  These cameras have automatic day and night function if the conference starts in the evening and extends to the evening   of night the quality of the video is automatically adjusted.  If the lighting is low due to any of the reasons there is nothing to worry as there cameras provide good color images in low light conditions and they produce good sharp black and white images in extremely poor lighting conditions 

The need for video conferencing and collaboration is increasing, as face to face meetings are possible with the colleagues whether we share the same office building or not.  Companies look to cut travel costs and ensure going Green in their level of communication and surveillance.  Improvements in the Video and picture quality and usage of highly technical video conferencing PTZ cameras has made Video conferencing a eventuality.
