The VKS glossary for business
  • Video conferencing (VIDEOCONFERENCING) — the modern hi-tech instrument of joint work using which it is possible to organize quickly online meetings and meetings and also to hold webinars and online broadcastings on a large number of participants. The VIDEOCONFERENCING modern systems gradually reach such quality level of transfer of the video image and a sound that in the course of communication "the effect of presence" is created, and the volume of information perceived by means of VKS reaches about 90%. At the same time, unlike personal meetings, VKS has several advantages.
  • Video conference - the technology providing at the same time bilateral transfer, processing, conversion and submission of interactive information at distance in a real mode of time using the hardware and software.
  • Webinar or Webinar - the action which is taking place in real time in the Internet or corporate network during which one or several speakers can hold the presentations, trainings, seyls-meetings, meetings for group from several people to several thousand participants.

  • H.323 – a stack of the protocols regulated by ITU-T and the defining set of standards for transfer of multimedia and data on networks with packet forwarding. It is used by many producers of the VIDEOCONFERENCING equipment. In recent years it is replaced with the SIP protocol.
  • H.323 the terminal – the PC or the self-contained unit supporting H.323 protocol and video transmission or audio-data.
  • VaaS (Video-as-a-Service) the solution – the solution for implementation of video communications provided on model of use of the software as services. This concept is a term SaaS specification for provision of services, connected with transfer of a video information.
  • The hardware server of a video conferencing – the hardware and software system representing the specialized hardware with the preset software for rendering of services of a video conferencing.
  • The codec (audio/video) – the device or the program capable to execute data translation or a signal. Codecs can how to code a flow/signal (often for transfer, storage or enciphering), and to decode — for viewing or change in a format more suitable for these transactions.
