Cyrano vs. Synchronous Video

By November 23, 2020February 3rd, 2021No Comments

This article details Cyrano and asynchronous video differs from synchronous live video conferencing platforms. 

Welcome to the New Normal

As working from home became the new normal throughout 2020, so too did using live video conferencing to connect teams and groups.

And while this proved to be effective for virtual discussions, it also presented an array of challenges. From coordinating schedules to troubleshooting connectivity issues, live video has left a lot to be desired.

With Cyrano, users can create and present visual communication in a more personable and engaging way. Say goodbye to the struggles of synchronous video while also ditching those long emails which often go unread.

Discovering a New Way

First things first, Cyrano and live video conferencing platforms, like Zoom, WebEx or Microsoft Teams are two different services — each designed to fulfill particular communication needs.

Cyrano was created with asynchronous video communication in mind. This provides the user with the flexibility to record and watch video messages when it’s convenient. Each message can be edited and refined, providing more control over content and quality.

On the other hand, live video conferencing platforms are synchronous video communication, connecting two people or groups together in real-time. While great ideas can be discussed, it is often not advantageous for large groups to meet on one live call.
