In grid environment, resources and users from different administrative domains are integrated and coordinated each other. Grid uses open standard, general-purpose protocols and interfaces to provide nontrivial quality of services. Videoconferencing is communication between two or more people from geographically different locations by simultaneous two-way video and audio transmissions. This is a type of ’visual collaboration’ with audio-video communication. It differs from telephone calls through video display. Audio and Video communications is achieved in form of conferencing through Internet. This paper proposes design of a Video Conferencing Solution (VCS), which enables the users to explore the power of collaborative conferencing in grid environment. This solution is capable of setting up live meetings between a host and a number of participants.
