Hello! Since we all know that communication in computers is digital and it is just binary(1 and 0). So how exactly is my image in a video call transferred to the other person sitting at the other end? I mean when I am using some service for example Skype, for a video call, I would need a camera, right! So what happens afterwards? How is my image sent to the receiver in a digital way?
Digital Communication in a Video Call
Skype is voice-over-IP service (VoIP)
It involves session initiation protocols that create and send multimedia data packets via a network connection. It is based on Peer-to-peer (“P2P”) technology.
It keeps multiple connection paths open and dynamically chooses the path for the encrypted calls.
When we call over the Skype, it is always encrypted to maintain privacy standards. Same is true for shared files, chats, and video.
