Some Basics of Videoconferencing Technology
Videoconferencing requires that at each connecting end of the conference there is at least a video monitor, camera, speaker and microphone.

The equipment may be configured in many different ways: a complete television studio, an all-in-one portable videoconferencing unit or an integrated Distance Learning classroom.

There must also be a system to transmit the audio/video signals between the sites.

Videoconferencing connections are generally made using IP.

IP (Internet Protocol) is videoconferencing over the Internet. IP videoconferencing sites can connect through either a closed IP network, such as a district local area network (LAN) or a regional wide area network (WAN), or an open IP network, such as the public Internet. IP-based videoconferencing has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years as the Internet becomes more sophisticated and mature. Another term for IP videoconferencing is H.323 videoconferencing.
