Your company and your workforce could benefit in many ways from the rapid growth of video-conferencing and AV  You probably think that video-conferencing is just for large meetings in big corporations into finance, stocks, and shares. Think again because organizations and businesses are increasingly using video-conferencing in their day to day work.

Let’s explore some of the industries using video conferencing technology and how they could benefit.


Courtrooms and legal offices are able to use video conferencing to connect in real-time with those witnesses or prisoners not able to face questioning or testify in person. This allows for easier proceedings for long court cases and removes the long wait for a particular date.

Furthermore, all users in a meeting can share legal documents and even evidence via a secure network, thereby making for a more streamlined process in court. Given that legal documents can run into thousands of pages; this will be greatly appreciated as a feature. Sharing pdf files in real-time can be done regardless of location.


The healthcare sector has a lot to gain from video conferencing insofar as they can assist with both teaching and administration. Doctors, colleagues, and patients can connect in real-time with each other using High-res video conferencing. In a sector where time is crucial, the right tools to communicate quickly are vital.

Furthermore, there are cost savings to be made as there is no longer the need to travel, making video-conferencing a great asset. Not to mention whiteboarding and sharing content for group training, allowing trainees to gain wide knowledge from wherever they are. Doctors can be with patients and not leave their office at the same time thanks to video conferencing technology.

Accessibility to doctors and their job performance both improve as a result- doctors becoming practical. A doctor can sync up with patients by morning, train new recruits in the evening with routine office duties taken care of in the afternoon. Here as well, there are ample opportunities for sharing content and cross-functional communication in the health sector.


This is a sector that would come to most people’s minds when talking about video conferencing. Students gain by sharing content and using a virtual whiteboard. They can also catch up on missed classes afterward or if they live in rural areas, sharing content in real-time countrywide. In addition to this, schools can reduce travel costs and save time by having speakers use video-conferencing instead.


Government departments can take time with response lead times and processes, caused by outdated paper-based work processes requiring the sifting through piles of paper. Audio and visual video solutions mean that time can be allocated to other work, speeding up response times, cutting travel costs, and removes distance as an obstacle. Naturally, the government often requires secure sharing amongst users and no interference – both of which are catered for ideally by video conferencing devices now available.

As they continue to grow in popularity, so the variety of use cases for their usage will widen, in particular in the above-mentioned sectors of industry.
