Video conference is allowed ?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I am working with MNC software company. My job is there as a desktop support engineer. We need daily basis ‘video conference’ testing to other location (Mumbai, Chennai, etc). check audio video quality and its working or not. So it is allowed in Islam?

There is no harm to check it through audio. However, since video involves a kind of picture making hence one should avoid it as much as possible.
