Traditionally, web conferencing has been used for traditional one-to-many communications like content sharing while video conferencing offers an engaging two-way, face-to-face interaction that resembles a real-time in person meeting. Web conferencing has historically been used when there is a large group to be addressed; events such as a training, town hall meetings and webinars. Web conferencing was also designed for individuals to join from their desktop. The options for participant interaction during a web conference is via chat, desktop sharing or a postage stamp sized video chat.
On the other hand, video conference participants can join from just about anywhere: a desktop or laptop, conference room video system, universities, home offices, mobile devices, the list goes on. Traditionally, video has been used for meetings between two different locations utilizing specialized video equipment at both locations. Blue Jeans video conferencing solution has moved beyond the boundaries of specialized conference rooms and into the mainstream offering connectivity to anyone with an internet connection and camera (or if you don't happen to have a camera handy you can even join via plain old audio!).

Today, web conferencing applications are adding two-way video capabilities and video conferencing solutions are including the ability to share content and present in unison with the video.
