ABSTRACT
Video conferencing connects individuals in real time through audio and video communication over broadband networks enabling visual meetings and collaboration on digital documents and shared presentations. In the early days, participants connected between central meeting rooms outfitted with video conference hardware, but new technologies allow participants to connect remotely over a network through multiple devices like laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets. Video conferencing has come of age and is used in every industry. Recent developments in mobile devices and wireless networks have propelled further interest in being able to video information anytime, from anywhere. Companies providing video conferencing facilities include polycon , cisco, lifesize, tandberg data, palbee , webex. In this project we have written the sevices these companies provide along with their contacts.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
I am very thankful for the support of Mr.Wahab Shabbir. Also my friend, Kamil Khan who helped me in the development of this project report.

VIDEO CONFERENCING
Video Conferencing technology that allows users in different locations to hold face-to-face meetings without having to move to a single location. This technology is particularly convenient for business users in different cities or even different countries because it saves the time, expense and hassle associated with business travel. Uses for video conferencing include holding routine meetings, negotiating business deals and interviewing job candidates.

HISTORY
Early versions of video conferencing equipment were expensive to buy and use and had many technical limitations. Today, standards-based video conferencing equipment provides businesses with a variety of benefits without the limitations of yesterday's technology. It was first introduced to the public at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. It was fairly primitive compared to today’s standards and most people were aghast at the notion that such an invention could possibly replace the telephone. The equipment was very expensive, naturally and it was not considered a success. People didn’t realize the full extent of video conferencing in those days, nor did many appreciate that they were witnessing it, every week on their own TV sets from 1966. Yes ‘Star Trek.’ The huge video screen that allowed Captain Kirk to speak to and see the crews on other intergalactic ships was a form of video conferencing. Though that was the future… In 1970, US telecoms company, AT&T launched the Picturephone but at $160 per month, it was still too expensive and too bulky to tempt consumers. Things changed when Ericsson demonstrated the first live video telephone call; businesses began to see the potential for such a device.

Japan had by this time (1976) already held a successful video call between Tokyo and Osaka and in 1982, IBM Japan took the next step: using their internal capabilities to link up with colleagues in the US for weekly meetings. However, the technology was still very expensive and as the Eighties commenced, line rental alone could cost $1,000 per hour, due to the vast system resources required to power it. In 1982, the landmark Compression Labs system cost $250,000. Buy 1986, however, a rival system from PictureTel retailed at $80,000. The prices were dropping. The Nineties’ advancements in Internet Protocol meant that video conferencing could further advance, becoming more efficient and allowing for PC-based communication. IBM (again) introduced the first black and white PC system at $20,000 in 1991. That same year, history was made when DARTnet connected 12 separate sites. This technology still exists today. In 1992, the CU-SeeMe systems was launched, running on Apple Macs. It was further developed throughout the course of the decade, though only ran between users on the same network.

...PROJECT ABSTRACT Project Name your name Project completion date INTRODUCTION Example: Today there are more than 100 animal species on the Endangered Species List in the United states alone. Each year more are added. Due to rescue and repopulation efforts, some animals are removed from the list. During our unit on animal habitat we will study some of these endangered animals and make suggestions for increasing their numbers. TASK(S) Example: IN order to prevent a species from being wiped out, my team and I have been given an area of wilderness land within the United states to build an animal sanctuary. The sanctuary must allow the animals some of the freedoms they would have in the wild, yet keep them with in the 200-acre space. We must also consider the best plan for operating the sanctuary , identifying funding sources, and ensuring ongoing health of the animals. ACTIVITY/PROCESS Example: Our animal * Select an animal from the Endangered species List * Research the animals natural habitat, dietary needs, and predators * Research the reasons why the animal is included on the endangered species List * Determine what might help the animal to prosper Our sanctuary * Determine what type of enclosure will be used to contain the animals within the sanctuary ...

...Chapter 3 Planning the Project This chapter begins by discussing the nine key elements of the project plan. The following two sections address the planning process in greater detail with considerable emphasis placed on the project launch meeting and the hierarchical planning process by which parts of the plan are sequentially broken down into finer levels of detail. This provides a natural transition to the creation of the Work Breakdown Structure. Finally, the chapter is concluded with a discussion of multidisciplinary teams including the topics of integration management and concurrent engineering. Cases and Readings Some cases appropriate to the subject of this chapter are: Harvard: 9-692-058 Taco Bell Corp. This 31-page best-selling case describes a project to implement a new strategic plan involving major changes in layout, staffing, quality, product design, and information systems. The coordination and integration of all these project activities is what makes the plan successful, and hard for competitors to imitate. Two teaching notes are available for this case: 5-692-091 (20 pages) and 5-196-073 (12 pages). Harvard: 9-694-059 Hardcard Project: Plus Development Corp.

...Several Himalayan geologists have repeatedly expressed apprehension against the massive road  and dam-building construction activity taking place in Uttarakhand which had resulted in the hillsides “crumbling. States oppose Model Flood Bill Even as floods play havoc in Uttarakhand, several states have opposed the provisions of a 38-year-old Model Flood Bill aimed at minimising losses to life and property in the natural calamity. The CWC had circulated the model bill to all the states to help the state governments enact the legislation. Except for Manipur and Rajasthan, no state legislature has enacted the 'Model Bill on Flood Plain Zoning'. Human hand behind flood disaster Ecologists point out that the huge expansion of hydro-power projects and construction of roads to cope with the lakhs of tourists in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh has compounded the scale of the disaster. There are of course links between climate change and extreme weather events as has happened with the torrential rain in Uttarakhand. But this has been exacerbated by the reckless construction of buildings, dams and roads in a fragile environment. Many of the settlements have been built right next to the rivers in blatant violation of environmental laws. The expansion of roads has proved a major destabilising factor combined as it is with plans to construct over 200 dams in this sensitive eco-zone. Data with the Uttarakhand state transport department bears this out. The state has seen a 1000......

...State University of New York Empire State College, MBA Program Course 651644: Tools and Processes in Project Management Summer 2013 term Instructor: Dr. Adams Assignment #1: X-philes Data Management Corporation: RFP Matters By Jose M Collazo What is the basis for the problem? There are two primary problems with how X-philes Data Management Corporation handled the request for proposal. The first one was the lack of communication by the managers who selected the same vendor for two different projects. This problem led to the creation of the second problem which is proper resource allocation. When dealing with multiple projects with the same vendor, the company runs the risk of creating multiple interdependencies. Any resource allocation decisions made in one project by the vendor are likely to have ramifications in the other projects. According to Pinto, Some of the better known problems include inefficient use of resources, resource bottlenecks, ripple effects, and the heightened pressure on personnel to multitask (Pinto 2013). The personnel issue in particular, was a main cause of schedule slippage as employees quit at the contractor and they were unable to maintain sufficient staffing levels to keep the projects on track. While bottleneck’s restricts a vendor's ability to make money, they realize that the best way to maximize income is to fully exploit the bottleneck resource (Chakravorty & Atwater§, 2006)...
