In WebEx Meetings, we have a feature makes doing business easier. It allows you to video conference in a way that mimics the ebb and flow of natural conversation.
We call it Active Speakerand it’s an invaluable tool for business. If you aren’t using video for business, it’s time to start.
You can learn more about the value of video from Melinda Emerson, SmallBizLady, and America’s #1 small business expert. She offers 12 ways to use video to grow your small business in this online webinar.
Active Speaker pushes the video image of the person speaking to lead position so you can actually follow the conversation via webcam. This means the person talking is the one you see featured.
This works especially well in theatre mode. In the screen shot below, you can see Wolfe Blizter’s video image is featured above the others because he’s the one talking (this was during a CNN election event earlier in the year). In this case he has four other guests (you can get up to six*) shown in the view. As you talk, the featured adapts and changes to show who is talking (watch this video to learn more).
This is a fun, lively way to host an online discussion -- with everyone engaged using their web cams. Now you can let the conversation take the lead -- brainstorm, negotiate, laugh.
WebEx is a great tool for conducting a web cam video conference.
