Video conferencing has been thrust into the mainstream with apps like Skype and G+ Hangouts – no need for expensive VC equipment, just a smartphone and an internet connection does the trick these days.
The trouble is, it’s never quite that simple – internet connections vary, buffering or lagging can interrupt things, and video calling is a sure fire way to hammer your smartphone’s battery.
That’s why a simple, easy-to-use, and cost-effective conference call is the best bet.
But if all that can go wrong with a video conference, have you ever wondered what this would all look like during a face-to-face meeting?
A video conference call in real life
OK, so you may never have wondered what a video conference call in real life would be like, but comedy duo Tripp and Tyler – yes, the two who brought you A conference call in real life and Email in real life – have now given video conferencing the real-life make over.
So if you’ve ever tried to match the words to the pictures as someone’s stream lags miles behind, been irritated by the person who can’t get the angle of their webcam right (zoomed in to a giant face is the worst), or had your kids gatecrash a call, then this video is definitely for you.
And even if you’ve never hit a single snag while on a video conference call, it’s still well worth a watch…
What’s your worst experience on a video conference call? Or has something ridiculously unlikely ever happened while you or a colleague has been on a video conference?
