The video conferencing technique actually goes way back to the time when Nassau launched its first satellite. Have you ever wondered what NASA was really doing up there in space? I’m sure we all have at some point and time. There was time people thought that man was going a little too far with this going back and forth into space.

Back then we had the slightest idea what was video conferencing was all about. Communication was being fine tuned by using trial and error as our bases of understanding how to better communicate.

As far back as the 1980's digital telephony transmissions systems were in use. The equipment used in those days, as mentioned earlier, was very expensive. It wasn't until the 90's that video conferencing really come into existence. Once it arrived its popularity exploded. Many free services, software and web plug-in were available.

Skype, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and many other free services introduced low quality video teleconferencing. Digital compression of audio and video streams in real time is actually the core of technology.

This means of communication is here to stay but it won't stay the same very long. Constant change in video conferencing is inevitable.
