Video Conferencing / Web Conferencing
The spread of a new kind of visual communication.
The RICOH Unified Communication System is bringing benefits to a wide range of scenes, benefits that include everything from the realization of easy and low-cost visual communication to increases in operation efficiency and productivity; cost reductions for the transportation expense, transit time, and personnel expense involved in business travel; higher customer satisfaction; and support for the company’s business continuity plan.
Scene 1: Raising operation efficiency through close communication
It takes a lot of time to share information since headquarters members have to visit each branch and office to hold meetings.
Using the RICOH Unified Communication System to hold headquarters and branch/office meetings, it is possible to share among branches knowhow that in the past tended to remain within a single branch. The system is easy to use so communication is readily achieved, and this leads to an increase in operation speed since smooth operational ties are formed between branches that used to act independently of each other.
Scene 2: Reduce the cost and time of your business travels
Whenever there is a meeting, branch members have to travel to the headquarter to hold the meeting.Since transportation takes time and money, your business efficiency is decreasing.
Now it is possible to switch to a video conferencing / web conferencing sytem for meetings which used to involve travels from different locations to the headquarter.
Transportation, lodging expenses and business trips indemnities have their cost dramatically reduced.
Scene 3: Accelerating operations with timely and accurate information communication
When only selected members participate in meetings, it is difficult to accurately communicate the information to those who did not participate. Participants bring investigation tasks back with them, and it takes time to make the necessary readjustments.
If a videoconferencing system is used, it is possible for even people who not ordinarily attend meetings to participate. The information is communicated in real time to all members, and matters can be considered on the spot. Since discussions can take place while images of actual objects are shown, work efficiency is increased. The same thing can be done between different companies.
Since this is a cloud-based service, as long as the Internet is available, communication is possible anytime and anywhere.
This system can handle a wide range of usage situations in ways not possible for conventional TV and Web Conferencing systems.
We provide you with a new form of communication.
With conventional Video Conferencing…
- With operations of only three steps, connection is extremely easy.
With conventional Video Conferencing, settings are difficult so not everyone can use it. Each time it may be necessary to summon the administrator.
- Since there are no location limitations, any space can be used.
With conventional Video Conferencing, it is necessary to reserve the conference room. Depending on the room status, it may be necessary to rearrange the meeting schedule.
- An Internet connection can be used to connect with other companies and customers.
With conventional Video Conferencing, it is not possible to install a dedicated line connection with other companies and customers.
- No MCU (Multipoint Control Unit) is required
Conventional Video Conferencing needs an MCU to make a video conference with multiple end-points, which takes cost and trouble.
With conventional Web Conferencing……
- Functions are simple and easy to use.
With conventional Web Conferencing, there are so many functions that users cannot make good use of them.
- The video is smooth and natural.
With conventional Web Conferencing, when using free Web Conferencing tools the video and audio quality can be bad, with interruptions and freezing.
- Natural communication among many people.
With conventional Web Conferencing, in principle, the interactions are one-to-one so the systems are not suited to natural communication among a larger number of people.
