video conferencing

video conferencing
   A method used to allow people at remote locations to join in a conference and share information. Originally done with analog video and expensive satellite links, video conferencing is now performed with compressed digital video transmitted over a local-area network or the Internet. From an application standpoint, video conferencing has gone way beyond looking at a picture of a person; users can look at and update charts, make drawings or sketches on a chalkboard, update spreadsheets, and so on, all online.
   A video camera and a speakerphone are linked to a PC at each site, and the PC in turn is linked to the network.
