Dispelling the 10 myths of cloud video conferencing

22 October 2015

Flexible working is on the rise and the appetite for home working has grown in recent years to avoid the congestion on today’s busy roads and spend more precious time with families. Many business owners are happy to move to Cloud based IT solutions such as Office 365, but when it comes to video conferencing they remain hesitant.

Here, we unravel the common misconceptions around Cloud video services to give you a clear idea as to what you can expect from a Cloud video service like VEGA Cloud Video.

1. It’s too expensive. This was the case a few years ago, but now you can sign up to a VEGA Cloud Video services contract for just a few pounds a month.

2. Don’t you need a server for infrastructure, call control and bridging? Not any more, VEGA’s Cloud Video service provides all this for you. There is no infrastructure required, plus
a pay per month license is a fraction of the cost of deploying video as an on premise solution.

3. It won’t work with legacy H.320 ISDN and H.323 systems? Actually, yes it does, VEGA has the transcoding servers and software that do all of this. It can even do audio dial in too.

4. It won’t integrate with Skype for Business. Yes, it does, and very easily. There is no additional Microsoft licensing or extra servers required to integrate the service.

5. It won’t allow guest access like Cisco Jabber Guest. Yes it does and more easily, just ping the recipient a url and they can join the conference from any PC, Mac, Android IPad Phone, using Web RTC.

6. Is not secure. VEGA Cloud Video provides complete security offering AES 128 encryption across all services.

7. You can’t stream and record the conference. You can now, and very easily and securely right from your own VEGA Cloud Video portal.

8. You have to use a dedicated endpoint to launch a multipoint call. Simply invite all participants into your Virtual Meeting Room (VMR). You can do this from any device that has good Internet access, decent bandwidth a camera, microphone and speakers.

9. It’s all too difficult to manage alongside all the other IT complexity. Not at all. VEGA Cloud Video provides you with three dedicated software portals to manage usage, reporting tools and launch calls. These are easy to use and come free with your Connect License.

10. Quality is poor. Ten years ago this may have been the case, but now the quality of a call is exceptional.

The only way to find out how inexpensive and easy Cloud video conferencing can be is to try it out.

VEGA Cloud Video offer a FREE two-week trial with no obligation to continue which gives you the opportunity to review the full service and decide for yourself. For further information please get in touch with the team at VEGA Europe:
