What are the 5 most commonly used video conferencing tools? 

Our meeting room solutions provide access to your favorite video conferencing tools, including Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. Some of our interactive touchscreens are explicitly built for selected conferencing tools such as Google Meet and Zoom.

We believe that the five of the best conferencing tools are:

  • Zoom — offering broad accessibility with super-reliable video streaming quality, Zoom accommodates online meetings for up to 500 attendees (depending on your subscription level). There are hundreds of collaborative tools natively compatible within the Zoom infrastructure (and apps for every major operating system), making your business calls and meetings more intuitive, accessible, and productive.
  • Google Meet — providing deep integration with Google Workspace, this is the best video conferencing application if your team uses Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Drive. Offering live captioning and browser accessibility for ultimate user-friendliness. Perhaps not as strong for meetings with hundreds of participants as Zoom, Meet provides excellent reliability for smaller teams.
  • Microsoft Teams — with robust video conferencing functionality, Teams integrates natively with Microsoft 365 applications to facilitate maximum productivity. With a fantastic whiteboard capability, Teams offers an excellent collaborative experience that makes remote working feel super-natural. One of the most highly recommended tools for seamless collaboration, whether participants are in meeting rooms or accessing the meeting remotely.
  • RingCentral — this meeting room solution is made for collaboration, designed for any room, and transforms how users can share, present, and collaborate during hybrid meetings. RingCentral offers a completely integrated meeting room experience for businesses.
  • Webex — previously THE conferencing tool for corporate businesses, Webex Meetings is a video call app with excellent visual and audio fidelity. An excellent whiteboard facility and live document collaboration make Webex a superb choice for businesses that need to unite remote and in-the-room participants.
What are the 5 types of video conference? 

The 2020 pandemic changed how we work and introduced many to remote working for the first time. And now that the panic has subsided, some workers are returning to the office while others are holding onto the freedom and flexibility afforded by remote working. 

So, video conferencing has come of age, and meeting rooms have adapted to facilitate natural integration between on-site and remote workers. These are the five principal approaches to video conferencing:

  • Personal Video conferencing — accessed through a plethora of smart devices, personal video conferencing solutions offer connectivity to workers wherever they are. All they need is an internet connection and a compatible smart device, and they can access HD video and audio with individual work colleagues or large teams. Great for remote workers who aren’t chained to a desk. 
  • Huddle Meetings — pioneered by collaboration platforms such as Slack, huddle meetings are on-the-fly video conferences that require little set-up and almost instantaneous connection. Great for quick impromptu virtual team meetings, interviews, and client consultations.
  • Desktop video conferencing — suitable for offices large and small, desktop video conferencing brings the power of desktop computing to physical meeting rooms while providing access by remote workers and guest speakers. A great way to bring disparate teams together by negating the need for travel.  
  • 360 video conferencing — traditional round-table meetings made remote access expensive and challenging, but now businesses have the choice of incorporating remote workers or streaming one-way round-table sessions to the broader workforce. 360 video conferencing cameras provide the widest possible video angle, including everyone around the table rather than focusing on just the speaker. 
  • Service-based video conferencing — connecting service users with advisors for an authentic face-to-face experience. Exceeding traditional phone support, service-based video conferencing has been adopted by banks and utility companies around the globe. 

Avocor’s interactive touchscreens offer access to a broad range of internal and external customers, helping keep everyone connected in high fidelity. And our GroupShare platform offers secure one-touch access to a massive range of video conferencing applications and collaboration tools.
