What are Video Calls?

Video calls are a telephony feature that allows people to see and speak to each other in real-time using video and audio technology.

Video calling is built right into Yeastar phone system, so all you need is a video-capable phone. Yeastar phone system supports the common video codecs H261, H263, H263P, H264 and MPEG4, and it works with a video-capable desk phone or soft phone that supported those video codes.

Use Case

Video calling can be used in various scenarios in the workplace. For instance, it can be employed to promote face-to-face interaction without high travel costs. Or it may be applied as a way to improve communications and reinforce relationships.
