How to Set Up a Video Conference
Setting up a video conference greatly depends on how many people you plan on having involved in the meeting. If you plan on having a one on one conference, the use of small chat programs that utilize video chats is effective. Of course, having the right equipment is essential for a video conference - it really only takes a web camera, a video card, and a sound card. The last two items come already equipped within your PC, but you can upgrade these items in case you want something the offers more features.
In the case of a web camera, these are sometimes standard on a laptop system. For desktop systems, the most basic web cams are about $30 dollars at your local retailer or computer supply store.. Again, most instant messaging programs come with an ability to use video chat, as long as one or both participants have web cameras.
There are some companies out there that make it easy to set up a video conference. One such online service is GoToMyMeeting, the same online service that offers GoToMyPC. Prices are reasonable and their easy to use interface makes setting up a video conference easy.
