Video Conferencing for the Financial Services Industry
There is a new approach to video conferencing: Cloud
computing and off-the-shelf peripherals that work anywhere a PC,
web browser and Internet connection can be found.
Now video conferencing can reach desktops, training facilities and
This new approach has many advantages in financial services
including lower hardware costs, operation over existing networks,
reach to any desktop and push-button ease-of-use that are significant
in generally distributed offices found in many credit unions,
banks, insurance companies and brokerage firms.
financial services industry spends an outsized portion of overall
revenue on information technology; which is perfectly natural since it is a
transaction-processing industry. As an early adopter of video
conferencing hardware, the most typical application — indeed, virtually
the only application — was boardroom-to-boardroom meetings among the
executive suite. Today, tech savvy IT managers have greatly enriched the
variety of video conferencing applications in financial services by
taking advantage of plug-n-play video peripherals, web browsers and
software and online services such as Nefsis.
The industry has embraced video conferencing as a productivity tool
to empower multiple offices to collaborate in real-time, train employees
on increasingly sophisticated internal systems and expand customer contact
among commercial accounts anywhere around the world.
High-Quality Video Enlivens Multiple Office Web Meetings
The introduction of Intel® Core™ Core 2 Duo processors and Nefsis
multi-core concurrency puts more processing power in a typical desktop
or conference room PC than any legacy video codec. The result is Nefsis
multipoint video conferencing renders a high-quality, full resolution,
full frame-rate display. Given equivalent bandwidth, Nefsis delivers
video at the same technical specifications as traditional room-based
systems, but without the addition of expensive MCUs. Where adequate bandwidth is
not available, Nefsis default and automatic bandwidth throttling provide the
best quality video available to each participant (on a

Security, Bandwidth & IT Controls for Policy Compliance
As always in financial services, security is critically important.
Interoffice communications must traverse firewalls and proxy servers,
while ensuring data is secure. Nefsis
as a service (SaaS)
provides IT staff industry standard tools for communications security
and policy compliance. In addition, Nefsis also offers an
server option for even more controls over physical routing,
network performance and security settings, including higher levels
of encryption and use of the customer's own security certificate as
may be required by institutions under policies with heavy
Nefsis also provides an administrative console for user and feature
controls; these can be very helpful in desktop video conferencing and
branch-office scenarios where control over live sharing and video
resolution are required for bandwidth conservation.

Built-In, Live Collaboration for Training Programs
The growing complexity of financial service products, internal controls
and compliance requirements has lead to an increase in training
requirements over the years. This can be especially challenging where
small, highly distributed branch offices and non-stop, nationwide
operations are a concern. Nefsis desktop reach, together with its live
desktop sharing and collaboration features make it an ideal solution in
For example, The Members Group serves credit unions, banks and mortgage
institutions. They explained their use of Nefsis for training
programs when they said "Web conferencing provides TMG with a low
cost and efficient method to train customers and employees and
supplements the traditional on-site training process. It has saved
us a great deal of money on travel and is more convenient for our
clients as well." — Jeff F., The Members Group.
Another nice feature is Nefsis video conferencing record-and-playback.
Live, instructor-led training sessions can be recorded in industry
standard file formats, for later replay by anyone who missed a session
or as more content for play-on-demand e-learning applications.
The Business Case for Web Video Conferencing:
Hard Cash Travel Reduction & Soft Benefits
The business case for web video conferencing most often rests on hard
cash savings through travel expense reduction. Repeat travel to the same
company locations is a prime target; recurring meetings with internal
staff are easy to move to online venues where everyone has ready access
to their presentations and spreadsheets. Additional cash savings may
apply where training and IT staff submit expense reports and battle
cross-town traffic or airport commutes to conduct desk-side and remote
office visits. The business case is further bolstered with soft benefits
such as improving inter-office communications, training frequency and
custom contact time through online meetings; plus telecommuting and
greenhouse gas reduction programs in support of corporate citizenship
