Video Conference

A meeting in which one or more participants participate by projecting their images on an audio-visual device. This allows one to attend a meeting from a great distance. Proponents of video conferencing argue that it saves on the cost of travel, especially in a multinational corporation. Critics contend that video conferences restrict the camaraderie and informal exchanges that facilitate the conduct of business.
