Evolution of the video technology for remote communication
The concept of video conferencing can be dated back to the later part of the 19th century in Europe and United States of America. This evolution resulted from the repetitive experiments in the field of telecommunication. The very first embodiment of the video conferencing device was named as video-telephone or videophone. The video technology entered the crucial phase of development in the later half of 1920 both in UK and the US with John Logie Baird and AT&T Bell Labs contributing to it. However, it was only in the later part of the 20th century, with powerful video codecs, Internet broadband and ISDN services that video conferencing became a more acceptable technology for regular usage (Wikipedia)
