is one of the best ways to connect for business purposes.

Myth 1: Installation is a pain.

Video conferencing via the cloud doesn’t require any major hardware or software purchases.

Everything is provided online, so installation is easy.

Some services automatically detect your devices, including headset, mic,
speakers, and camera, for quick and easy calls with little to no setup required.

Myth 2: The costs are prohibitive.

Actually, many of today’s top video conferencing services
are low-cost, especially when implemented company-wide. Meetings can happen
without plane travel, hotels, cabs, and meals. And that translates to big savings.

Myth 3: Connecting everyone is hard.

In fact, connecting is easier than you think. You can hold an HD video2 conference
from your favorite device and accommodate up to 250 people on a single call.
Everyone is connected, no matter where they are.
