Lighting for video conferencing

The way you set up your lights will make a big difference in the way people on the other end of your call perceive you. Remember face and body language are essential or else you might as well be making a phone call. Look at your image critically. Analyze what is the image you wish to project. Best that the camera be at the same level as your eyes so your face won´t look distorted.

Get the team to say yes to web collaboration with WebRTC technology

Change doesn’t always lead to progress but there can be no progress without change. This being said, it’s always challenging for leaders to get everyone within the company to accept and embrace change as an opportunity to grow and, ultimately, evolve. People usually get used to a certain work pattern and find thousands of reasons to cling to it whenever change knocks at their door.

The random old-fashioned phone call

Even though I spend a lot of my talking time on Veeting - obviously - I still use ordinary phone calls for business meetings once a while. I sometimes ask myself how I managed to do business a few years back when low bitrate codecs where the norm rather than the exception.

The Importance of Privacy for Business Communication

Even in today’s increasingly transparent society, good communication in both personal and business transactions is predicated on the expectation of privacy. Attorney/client privilege and physician/patient confidentiality are two of the best known examples of protected communication. But in the broader arena of commerce, interactions as varied as financial consultations, contract negotiations, and recruitment efforts take place under the umbrella of confidentiality for financial and ethical reasons.

How SaaS Benefits Big Business

In the early days of business software development, one of the prime benefits of having an enterprise-class budget was the ability to purchase software for on-premise use. Large companies could readily outspend and outclass smaller competitors. However, the advent of inexpensive technology along with web-based delivery models has radically changed the balance of power. Large companies with thousands of employees are now hard-pressed to justify the excessive cost per-person of managing software in-house.

What Is Privacy In A Social Network?

Ello is the new social network that is on the up and up and garnering increasing comment about its privacy policy on the way.

The Veeting Advantage

When you think of the word software, the concept of installation quickly comes to mind. Software as a Service (SaaS) however is an innovation that does not require standard installation.
