No new technology evolves efficiently, and video conferencing acquired more than its talk about of bumps on the way before becoming the widely used communications staple it is today. The history of video conferencing in its earliest form dates back to the 1960’s, when AT&T launched the Picturephone at the World’s Fair in NY.
160 per month in 1970. Commercial use of real video conferencing was first noticed with Ericsson’s demonstration of the first trans-Atlantic LME video mobile call. 1,000 a full hour. The system was used and huge enormous resources capable of tripping 15-amp circuit breakers. 100 each hour lines. In enough time in between both of these offered systems commercially, there were other video conferencing systems developed commercially that were never offered. The annals of video conferencing isn’t complete without mentioning these systems which were either prototypes or systems developed specifically for in-house use by a variety of corporations or organizations, like the military.
Around 1984, Datapoint was using the Datapoint MINX system on their Texas campus and got providing the machine to the military. In the late 1980’s, Mitsubishi started selling a still-picture phone that was a flop in the market place basically. They dropped the line 2 yrs after introducing it.

Today, DARTnet has developed into the CAIRN system, which connects dozens of institutions. 1,500 video telephones for the home market. It was a borderline success.
That same year, the world’s first MBone sound/video broadcast occurred and in July INRIA’s video conferencing system was introduced. This is actually the year that noticed the first proper explosion in video conferencing for businesses around the globe and eventually led to the standards produced by the ITU. International Telecommunications Union developed coding criteria The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) began developing criteria for video conferencing coding in 1996, when they established Standard H.263 to reduce bandwidth for transmission for low bit rate communication. Other specifications were developed, including H.323 for packet-based multi-media communications.
These are a number of other telecommunications requirements were revised and up to date in 1998. In 1999, Standard MPEG-4 originated by the Moving Picture Experts Group as an ISO standard for media content. In 1993, VocalChat Novell IPX networks presented their video-conferencing system, but it was doomed from the start and didn’t last.
