If you work for a company that has multiple offices in different states and cities video conferencing is going to play a large part in whether or not your company is successful in various ways including how you communicate. To make sure your video conferencing is done correctly it is imperative to make sure you have the best video conferencing equipment available.

Understanding Video Conferencing Equipment

Businesses all across the country are depending on video conferencing to keep their multiple offices connected not only to each other but to clients and customers as well. There are a number of VoIP Miami residents and businesses use to ensure they are getting the most out of the conference and video calls. To make the best decision possible about which equipment is right for you, your company needs to understand a little bit more about these systems as a whole.


The center of video conferencing systems is composed of multiple different elements that help capture and transmit videos and audio sounds. Those different features include:

  • Video Input (there are at least two for webcams or digital projectors)
  • Audio Input (microphones)
  • Video Output (computer screen or projectors)
  • Codec (software that compresses analog videos and audio)
  • Echo Cancellation Software (gets rid of audio delays)
  • Network for Data Transfer (high-speed broadband internet)


A specific feature that you should understand is data compression. During a video conference the camera and microphone capture analog videos and audio signals. These two things are made up of continuous waves of amplitude and frequency that represent sounds, brightness, depth, and colors. If it weren’t for data compression video conferencing would be impossible unless there was an enormous bandwidth available. After the data is compressed, it needs to be transferred, which happens over a digital network. Usually, companies use a broadband internet connection.


One obstacle that businesses may face when trying to video conference is the presence of firewalls. This hardware is designed to protect computers from viruses and provide security to organizations, which means video conferencing data can be blocked. In order to allow video conferencing to occur:

  • The firewall needs to recognize the signals from video conferencing
  • The signals need to bypass the firewall without disturbing the protection of other traffic
  • The firewall needs to be able to handle a substantial amount of traffic while still ensuring a high-quality video conference

Our business switched from one large VOIP provider to GoToConnect recommended by CPT of South Florida. Although we had a significant pricing decrease, the biggest benefits were in a much more user friendly and powerful phone system.

CPT has been a great partner for many years. We can always depend on their expertise and recommendations. They have solved complicated network issues with top notch techs. They also recommended and guided us through the installation of the logmein/Jive phone system that turned out to be a great decision and CPT was a big part of the projects success..

2 years ago I replaced my phone system. It was a very difficult situation due to the nature of my business. CPT did a good job. There were some hiccups as there are in anything you do of this magnitude and CPT rectified them. There support in the last 2 years has been very good.
