Whether you need to run a meeting or conduct a job interview, you can run high quality video and web conference sessions using off-the-shelf computer equipment.
Most standard issue laptops have an in-built webcam and microphone. In many cases, these are suitable for one-on-one online conversations. Desktop computers will require an external webcam, microphone and speakers.
