Modern video conference equipment guarantees you the ability to meet face to face with other people on the other side of town, on the other side of the country and even on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, without loss of time and without incurring travel and accommodation costs. You hold your meeting in a specially equipped room, or just as easily sat at your desk or via your tablet PC (e.g. iPad) or smartphone. Whatever the case, from the confines of your own environment! You don’t have to travel at all. The quality of modern video conference systems is so good that it's as if the person you are speaking to is in the same room.

Your possibilities with video conferencing are extensive. Ranging from holding video meetings via your iPad and smartphone to international, strategic meetings in large meeting rooms in which a large number of participants at multiple sites take part via the video conference system. The steady flow of new technical developments in this area opens up an increasingly large range of possibilities for increasingly less money. In fact, because communication via IP is now possible, video conferencing is already being integrated more and more in offices, mobile devices (smartphones, tablet PCs) and in practically all organisations’ normal workflow. It has become truly indispensable.
Telepresence is the ultimate form of video conferencing and ecological communication, which provides a perfect, total face-to-face meeting experience without the participants having to be present in the same room. Because identical interiors and uniform lighting systems are used, individual participants can be thousands of kilometres away from each other but still feel that they are in one and the same room and sitting at the same table as the other participants. Read more on our Telepresence page.
Different elements are required within your network to provide a solid base for efficient set-up of your video conference network. Only when all these elements (hardware, software, connections, firewalls, end-points, etc.) are matched to each other correctly, will you gain maximum benefit from your video conference solution. Our video conference specialists will be delighted to advise you on how your video conference infrastructure should be set up in order to achieve your objectives and fulfil your expectations. Read more about the infrastructure required for video conferencing based on an example.
Of course you want to use your video conference system without fuss and bother. The focus must be on the meeting rather than whether the technology works, all the connections have been set correctly, the bandwidth is sufficient to allow scaling up, etc. BIS Managed Video Services resolves all your concerns in this area.

On-line video collaboration is the ability to work together with others and exchange information and ideas via the Internet. Meeting up with each other on the web and using handy tools to share simple applications, documents and even complete desktops with each other. In addition to sharing and presenting information, the participants can also take control of the other participants’ computers via a remote link in order to set up a helpdesk environment.
On-line video collaboration offers colleagues, partners, etc., who work at different locations, the ultimate facility for collaborating in a virtual environment. Users of video collaboration say that it is a vital communications instrument that has had a major, positive impact on their work. In addition to lower costs, video collaboration also results in substantially increased productivity and process efficiency.

E-learning makes it possible for your students and course participants to attend lessons and lectures and sit exams, etc. via the Internet both live and on demand. BIS offers you the opportunity of extending your e-learning solution to include video. This gives your lessons extra impact. Thanks to the combination of webcasting technology with streaming video, your students can not only read the teaching material from a remote location, but also see the teacher and their fellow students and – in the case of e-learning live – actively participate in the lessons. This makes e-learning suitable for both state-approved education and company training courses. This form of learning is independent of time and place, reduces travel costs (the teacher and the student do not need to be present simultaneously at the same location) and the teaching material is always available.
