Video impact

Was thinking this morning of the impact on the environment with everyone working from home.

And the exponential increase in video calls.


MS Teams.


“It is often assumed that online meetings are better for the environment than physical meetings. That is not always the case.

  • A one-hour audio call consumes about 36 MB of data per person.
  • A one-hour standard-definition video call consumes about 270 MB per person.
  • A one-hour high-definition video call consumes about 540 MB per person.
  • A one-hour ultra-high-definition video call consumes about 1.3 GB per person.”

The above is from Gerry’s post here.
