Video Conference Uses In Government Sector

Video Conferencing and Telepresence systems are transforming the way Central and State Government agencies communicate. Government agencies of all kinds are using this most advanced technology to increase productivity, reduce travel cost, and fulfill eco-friendly initiatives. These systems create virtual meeting experiences so realistic, makes the participants feel as if they are in the same room, even though they are located in different geographic areas, far away miles apart from each location.

The need to come at a meeting place from different geographic locations in not required, if these agencies use the most advanced video communication technologies. The need for government workers to travel for meeting is reduced, and helps in saving time and travel cost, hotel expenses, and in carbon dioxide emissions.
