Video Conferencing

Since 2010, RCC communications administrations, together with the ITU Area Office for the CIS countries, have been creating a network for electronic meetings (video conferences, videoconferencing).

Video Conferencing is a telecommunication technology for the interactive interaction of two or more remote subscribers, in which between them the exchange of audio and video information in real-time is possible taking into account the transfer of control data.

Today, video conferencing is used during official meetings within the framework of ITU and RCC in order to significantly increase the activity and number of participants in meetings, as well as reduce the financial burden on communications administrations of countries of RCC participants and ITU Sector Members.

Video Conferencing hardware platforms are available in the RCC Executive Committee, the ITU Area Office for the CIS countries, communications administrations of the Azerbaijan Republic, the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Republic of Moldova, the Russian Federation, and the Republic of Uzbekistan.

For participants who do not have Video Conferencing hardware platforms, it is possible to connect and participate in meetings using software clients based on PCs or mobile devices (tablets, smartphones).

Currently, the RCC Executive Committee uses Polycom® RealPresence® Group 500 equipment to organize video conferencing.
