A screen flickers — filled with unfamiliar faces, the potential business partners. A meeting is soon to begin, and you’re swallowing down the nervous laughter that threatens to bubble out of you. Video conferencing is an unfamiliar process. You’ve confined yourself to the world of emails and telephones. Exchanging information with the aid of a television seems somehow strange.
You’re prepared, however: with an outfit chosen carefully and a style that can’t be denied. Bright patterns, bold accessories — you celebrate fashion to earn respect. There are no flaws to find with your design…. until the conference begins and that design distorts.
Video conferencing is a value within industry. It allows companies to defy distance, forge relationships across the globe. There are limitations within it, however — and pixels often are unable to sustain themselves with the arrival of heavy colors, patterns or textures. Images blur; distortion forms; and shadows are cast, unwelcome, against the screen.
It’s vital therefore that individuals — like yourself — recognize the potential problems of video chats. Cameras offer lower resolutions. Their speeds rely on Internet connections, which can cause them to slow (sharing networks with the rest of the company, trying to reconcile all of the emails and search engine requests being sent at that time). Trying to film bright patterns therefore is a problem: with the equipment unable to compensate. This can form unwanted results, with the pictures then obscured.
All video conferences should be offered simple designs. Solid colors and subtle patterns are vital. These will not corrupt the images and will instead ensure that all pixels are perfect — allowing a meeting to proceed as planned.
