“Web conferencing,” meanwhile, referred to a less formal, desktop-and-webcam system that prioritized sharing on-screen content for presentations and webinars, with the presenter’s webcam video as an optional supporting element.
Today, however, as many web conferencing tools offer two-way video and video conferencing tools add the ability to share content and present, the applications have become more similar and the nomenclature more interchangeable.
Adobe Connect 9.6 onwards, you can share and consume HD (720p) live video feed.
Video feeds in a meeting are displayed in the Video pod in either Filmstrip layout and Grid layout.
Presence isn’t just a video camera app, though—it has surveillance features, such as motion detection alerts (you can set Presence to alert you when the streaming device picks up motion) and two-way video and audio capabilities.
For example, you can set up a webcam to do your monitoring for you via Cloudcam.
Or you can pick up a cloud camera (like Dropcam Pro) for high-definition, low-light monitoring. The easiest, no-frills way to keep a watchful eye is to use an app on your phone paired with an extra piece of equipment.
You’ll find tons of surveillance apps, video monitors, baby- and pet-cams, and other spy-type apps in the app marketplace that you can use to keep tabs on your pad-slash-baby-slash-pet.
Hosts, Presenters, and participants with enhanced video rights can set a video feed as the primary video from among all the video feeds.
In Full Screen mode, the Title bar is not visible and only the video feeds are displayed.
My best guess is that video is streamed at a resolution of 192 x 144 pixels, H.264, 44khz sound.
As for the frame rate I haven’t seen it go above approximately 12 frames per second as far as I can tell.
Image quality is just above being useless; being out of focus unless you are only a foot away from the camera (despite the FAQ mentioning focusing by tapping on the screen)  I had to find out all of this information myself by recording a video, downloading the video, and then inspecting it with VLC.
I did take a good look at the website and I could find no technical details like this at all.
Home surveillance: It’s one of those things you probably don’t think about until you have to, like when you leave town for several weeks, or when you adopt a curious puppy who likes to put everything in his mouth.
Or worst of all, after you’re the victim of a home break-in.
