The GVC3200 allows users to communicate with anyone with HD video and other collaboration tools such as whiteboard, text exchange, file sharing, media sharing, screen sharing, remote control, electronic voting, conference recording etc.

Uses of Video Conferencing
Video conferencing is used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Personal communication. Grandstream video conference can be used for informal and formal way of communication. Informal communication would normally use desk top systems. More formal meetings with several participants at each site would probably use dedicated studio settings.
- Collaborative work between researchers using shared applications
- Teaching usually involves one to many connections. The student sites may receive audio and video but only send audio.
- Meetings: this is probably the most popular application. The cost savings can be appreciable especially for international conferences where not only the travel costs are saved but also the significant time spent travelling to destinations.
