Point-To-Point Videoconference

Definition - What does Point-To-Point Videoconference mean?

A point-to-point videoconference is a type of videoconference that is limited to two locations, versus a multi-point videoconference, which may include more than two locations. Each type uses technologies that require different types of video conferencing setups.

Techopedia explains Point-To-Point Videoconference

A point-to-point videoconference was the norm with traditional video conferencing setups (like closed-circuit TV), making multi-point videoconferencing extremely difficult. Today, digital telecom and related technologies have streamlined multi-point videoconferencing, as digital data streams use sophisticated videoconferencing resources to facilitate the syncing of various location signals.

Point-to-point videoconferencing is still popularly used with common IT teleconferencing tools, such as Skype. A benefit is that syncing the two signals does not require a bridge or other sophisticated system. Also, unlike many multi-point systems, there is a better chance of a clearer signal and less lag time.
