The Top Ten Reasons Why Video Meetings Fail

And how to make yours succeed!

By Nina Parker

If your company has made an investment in a video conferencing solution, you may have heard the comment, "Don't worry we have plenty of bandwidth on our corporate IP network for a quality video experience." Many of you know from managing video conferencing that it takes more than bandwidth to have a reliable video experience - to run successful video meetings, companies need to control their conferencing environment. This includes managing everything from the room to the users, the end points, the network, and the video infrastructure.

To effectively maintain these components of your conferencing environment, your company must establish a video service. Whether you decide to build and run this service yourself, or outsource it to a managed conferencing service like IVCi's IntelliNet MCS®, the key to success is to manage, manage, manage! If you do not take this crucial step, you will not experience the video adoption rates that could lead to a substantial return on your technology investment.

The following are the top ten reasons why video meetings fail, and what you can do to ensure success instead.

10. The network is unstable.

Solution: Your video conferencing solution is only as reliable as the network. If it is your company's network, you must understand bandwidth utilization. Tune your network for video and monitor the status of your network to solve issues before they have the chance to impact your video meetings. If you do not have the resources to manage your network, consider outsourcing this task to a service provider.

9. The call is not launched on time.

Solution: You must install and utilize a tool that is programmed to automatically launch calls as scheduled. This way, the end user only has to show up on time and participate in the meeting.
