Dear IXDA Members,
I'm studying the personas that adopt video conferencing tools. If you use video conferencing, which product do you use and for what purpose (work, personal, or both)? What are your top three expectations when using or purchasing a video conferencing product? How frequently do you use video conferencing?
 
Thank you for your time and input!

Hello Silpa.

Wow this is an old post and you might have already gotten the answers, yet I would like to reply still.

We use video chatting daily. My wife uses Skype and is on as much as she can be. She videochats with family who lives in Karachi (we live in Sweden), relatives in UK, Canada and Denmark.

For me, video conferencing plays a huge role.

I use Adobe Acrobat Connect service to give online trainings on WordPress CMS to my clients. It's helpful for them to watch as I walk through WordPress and show them very specific functions. They can take over my screen and complete tasks as well.

I use Skype and Call Recorder to record video interviews with subjects for my blog. And, we use it at Reese News at UNC Chapel Hill to do the same. We are also using Oovoo to to multi-user chats. For example, we did Reese Rivals, where a Tar Heel was located at UNC, a "Dukie" at Duke, and the moderator at home.

I also use LiveStream when giving presentations. While it's not two way, there is a chat feature that provides for user comments during the web cast.
