Reliable, uninterrupted video conferencing

posted by Abishek Muthian 183 days ago  

Video conferencing has been in existence for over 50 years and yet it's still nearly impossible to have an uninterrupted, reliable session with multiple participants from around the world.


Don't believe me? Look at what the world's most premiere organisation tasked with preventing the next World War is facing.

It's easy to delegate the cause to the quality of the Internet itself being not equal in different parts of the world, but that's not the only problem to the issues in video conferencing. The problems range from technical to behavioural.

Technical problems include, but not limited to -

  • Internet QoS, latency, connectivity.
  • Video/Audio encoding and decoding.
  • Noise reduction.
  • Echo suppression and cancellation.
  • Hardware and Software incompatibilities.
Behavioural problems include, but not limited to -

  • Forgetting camera/mic is ON/OFF.
  • Obstructing the camera/mic.
There's no dearth of video conferencing tools trying to solve some these problems, but since not all of these are solved by a single system; there's still a huge need gap.
