Video conferencing (VC) offers the proven business rewards of face-to-face contact, efficient knowledge transfer and enhanced personal interaction. Conference room solutions, however, can be expensive and complex. Strategically addressing this dichotomy is today’s trend toward cloud-based services that deliver Full HD video conferencing directly to a user’s desktop. Vastly improved over the days of free Skype and similar products, these cloud-based VaaS (video-as-a-service) providers let users easily launch an instant meeting from their standard desktop browser. The simplest means of implementing, using and supporting desktop VC is with an all-in-one monitor solution like the ViewSonic® VG2437Smc, which delivers Full HD resolution along with an integrated 2MP webcam, dual 2W speakers, mic and headphone ports for outstanding video and audio performance ideal for web and video conferencing. Beyond these basic must-haves, additional features can facilitate a more comfortable and convenient user experience, improving the rate of acceptance and use. These include an advanced ergonomic design for a greater range of custom positioning options; SuperClear® MVA panel technology for exceptional color performance and extended viewing angles; ViewMode™ technology for superior color rendering and intuitive presets; and ViewSonic’s true Flicker-Free technology for reduced eyestrain and fatigue.
