4 Video Conferencing Lies Everyone Thinks Are True… But Aren’t

Video conferencing is too complicated, too time-consuming, too tech-specific and too low-quality for company-wide adoption… right? Wrong!

Avaya’s own employees use Avaya Scopia®–the company’s premier video conferencing solution–to hold more than 50,000 meetings a month with internal and external participants.

Misconceptions about video conferencing abound, but Scopia can set the record straight:

#1: Video conferencing is too complicated. (Wrong!)

Imagine a video conference that doesn’t require a separate audio line, a license key or banging your head against a wall to connect to the conference. No need to imagine; it’s a reality with Scopia.

You can invite anyone, anywhere, on any network, to participate in a video call. Joining a meeting for first-time users on Scopia takes users six simple steps, versus 50 for Polycom’s similar offering.

#2: And time-consuming. (Nope!)

How long do you think joining a video conference should take? Ten minutes? Five? How about less than one? That’s what it takes first-time users on average to join a Scopia meeting.

A study by the Tolly Group validated that first-time users enter a Scopia Desktop conference in less than 60 seconds on average, compared to up to 7 minutes for Polycom’s RealPresence.

#3: You need to call IT for that. (Myth!)

If entering a meeting in around 733 percent fewer steps and 600 percent less time isn’t enough, Scopia features dynamic updates, which save IT professionals and users serious hassle.

#4: Don’t expect it to be high-definition. (False!)

The biggest misconception about video conferencing is that the picture will be fuzzy, shaky and low-quality. In reality, Scopia displays in high-definition featuring crisp video quality, smooth user motion and enhanced resolution – more than double that of standard definition.
