HD Video Conferencing for Better Connections
What’s video conferencing?
The range of options for video conferencing services are as diverse as the use cases. A video conference call can take place from your IP desk phone, through a cloud-based app, on a mobile device or in a video meeting space equipped with a room system. With the right video conferencing provider, you can cover every base through a unified communications and collaboration solution – so no matter where your employees work, they’ll be able to stay connected.
The advantages of video conferencing for businesses
Video conferencing can bring your business together despite the distance.
Increase your close rate
For many sales professionals, video calling is the next best thing to meeting in person. The act of jumping on webcam (even if your prospect doesn’t return the gesture) has been shown to increase close rates. Use video to build trust and rapport – and ultimately close more deals.
Bring teams closer
Team building can be challenging when everyone isn’t in the same location. Phone calls just can’t replace a true face-to-face connection. Thankfully, video collaboration goes a long way toward creating a happy and productive virtual team by allowing team members to see eye to eye and share a smile.
Get the whole message
Digital communication is full of miscommunication. It’s easy to miss someone’s intention in a text or email, and audio-only calls hide non-verbal expressions. With a video conferencing solution, you can register and understand all the body language cues that are so important to clear conversation.
Travel less, save more
Having an in-person meeting means people who aren’t local need to travel to get there. That means worrying about travel costs, not to mention the time it takes. Video conferencing solves the problem by allowing people to meet from anywhere as if they were in the same room.

Video Conferencing Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I join video conferencing?
There’s really nothing to it. Joining a video conference in GoToMeeting is as simple as clicking an invite link or entering the name of the organizer’s meeting room. Depending on your device and settings, GoToMeeting will launch as a desktop app or open a video conference session right in your browser, and both offer the same powerful user experience. You’re then free to turn on your own webcam and join the conversation.
- What do I need for a video conference?
In GoToMeeting, you’ll need a separate webcam if your computer doesn’t already have one pre-installed. Our video conferencing software works with most standard webcams, but, based on our testing, we highly recommend Logitech webcams. Once you’ve connected the device, you can adjust its settings in GoToMeeting before you go live. We also provide all-in-one room systems with high-quality webcams and audio devices so you can quickly set up a conference room.
- How many people can join a video conference?
Depends on the GoToMeeting plan you choose. Our biggest option, GoToMeeting Plus, accommodates up to 250 in your online meetings. However, only 25 people can use video by sharing their webcam at the same time. This ensures a smooth experience for everyone on the video call.
- Can I do video conferencing on my phone?
You can! Our highly rated mobile apps are perfect for video calling on the go. Start or join a video conference from anywhere on your iOS or Android mobile device. You can then see the webcams of other attendees and share your own in a tap. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play to download the apps.
- What are some video conferencing tips?
Here are a few rules of thumb to stick to with video collaboration tools:
- Make sure your webcam is in a stable position on your computer or monitor – especially if you have a desk you raise and lower often.
- Choose a location with good lighting. If you're sitting in front of a window, try moving to another spot so attendees aren’t looking at your silhouette the entire time.
- Position your webcam (and yourself!) so that your face fills up a good portion of the webcam viewer. The closer you are, the easier it is to read your expressions.
- For even better video communications in GoToMeeting, try opening Preferences> Webcam > Advanced. Depending on your webcam, you may have additional features to enable, such as "face recognition" or "right light," that can improve your video quality.
