Discover a conferencing experience


A teleconference is the live exchange and mass articulation of information among several persons and machines remote from one another but linked by a telecommunications system. Terms such as audio conferencing, telephone conferencing and phone conferencing are also sometimes used to refer to teleconferencing.

Conference Call

A conference call is a telephone call in which someone talks to several people at the same time. The conference calls may be designed to allow the called party to participate during the call, or the call may be set up so that the called party merely listens into the call and cannot speak. Conference calls can be designed so that the calling party calls the other participants and adds them to the call. Participants are usually able to call into the conference call themselves by dialing a telephone number that connects to a “conference bridge” (in a PBX).


Video conferencing implies the use of this technology for a group or organizational meeting rather than for individuals, in a video conference. Telepresence may refer either to a high-quality video telephony system (where the goal is to create the illusion that remote participants are in the same room) or to meetup technology, which goes beyond video into robotics (such as moving around the room or physically manipulating objects). Video conferencing has also been called “visual collaboration”

Organizations use conference calling as a means to communicate with remote employees, partners, vendors and customers. It can also help cut down on travel expenses and even enable you to connect multiple office locations. As helpful as conference calling can be for a business, some people would describe the experience as boring and unproductive. Often the experience isn’t as good as it could be because people aren’t properly prepared.
