If you are fresh to the game there is some video conferencing hardware to consider.

Gone are the days after you had to fly across the country and drain your company's expense account only to attend a two-hour assembly. Now, all you are related is turn on your pc and you're all set to go.

But if you are fresh to the world of training video conferencing online, it may not be that easy. You might not have any understanding of the different video conferencing hardware components that you will need to get started. To make things even more difficult, a quick Internet search for the phrase "video conferencing camera" introduces more than 42, 000 entries. Yikes!

In the interest with protecting your sanity and even boosting your status in the eyes of your ceo, we've provided a brief directory of the basic pieces of equipment you'll need to become conferencing and good places to purchase them:

Personal Computer
Most offices these days are equipped with personal computers (PC). These temperamental creatures are a necessary evil to keep your business organized and competitive from the twenty-first century market. A PC is also completely essential to training video conferencing, as your computer hooks up with other computers so that you can conduct your meetings internet.

Whether DSL and also dial-up, most offices these days are connected to the online world. The web is a valuable tool in business today and every body has a website -- even your neighbor's pet. Internet connection is a must for online conferencing, as you actually have to be online for this type of conferencing. Dial-up services will work for video conferencing online, but your images will be a lesser amount of clear. ISDN connections work best as they provide the fastest interconnection speeds and clearest snap shots.

A video conferencing camera is usually an important piece of hardware as it enables you to talk face to face to the colleague or customer across the country. Without them, you're just simply audio conferencing. Prices for video conferencing cameras range from a basic IBM model going for $40 to a snazzier PolyCom model that runs about $499. Logitech sells a model specially designed for laptops or notebooks.

Cables and Stuff
You will need a USB cable to help you convert the images that a camera records to a format that your particular computer can understand. USB Gear provides several types of equipment that take up minimal space on your pc and will get the job done.

Unless you want your video conference to become just a visual conference, some type of microphone is required for each participant to speak with the others. Wideband Solutions sells different microphones designed to cover both small plus large boardrooms. If a charge card need a microphone to repay you and your counter, Phoniex Audio sells your microphone that will do the job.

While not fully necessary, a headset is a convenient piece of equipment for any savvy video recording conferencer. Imagine trying to crunch some numbers for a spreadsheet and carry using a conversation about your budget which has a phone awkwardly cradled in the crook of your shoulder complex, while your boss appears to be on from 300 distance away. Not exactly the put-together professional image you want to convey.

Time to Search!
Ebay and Amazon are good spots to go for used equipment, but buyer beware - you never know what condition it might reach you in. Always be sure to use reputable sellers using good customer ratings. PolyCom is well known in the industry plus sells top-of-the line accessories. You can also try NexTag. This site that provides a search of the best prices on whatever electronic equipment you specify.
