Web conferencing describes various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings. In general, web conferencing is made possible by Internet technologies, particularly on TCP/IP connections. Services may allow real-time point-to-point communications as well as multicast communications from one sender to many receivers. It offers data streams of text-based messages, voice and video chat to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations. Applications for web conferencing include meetings, training events, lectures, or presentations from a web-connected computer to other web-connected computers. Popular titles include GoToMeeting, Cisco WebEx, Microsoft Lync, TeamViewer and Skype.

Hello All,

We currently have computers in each of our conference rooms that use a generic user account to automatically login. We currently map multiple network drives to these machines which allows users access to almost everything on the shares. We are looking for a way to keep these network drives mapped but require the users to enter their personal domain credentials anytime they open a shared drive. Most of these machines are left unattended which is cause for some security concerns.

Wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions about forcing windows to always ask for credentials when connecting to a network drive. Or if anyone would be willing to share how they handle this at their location.

Currently we use Polycom VSX 7000 to do video conferencing. But a cable coming out from the speaker is worn out and can be broken into 2 pieces. Instead of buying another video conferencing system, we are thinking to use Skype. Since Samsung TV doesn't come with Skype with it any more, we can do the following:
1. Connect a laptop to Samsung TV via HDMI
2. Connect web camera to laptop and put it on Samsung TV

In this way, Skype user to Skype user should communicate no problem. Is there any recommendation of web camera for 22" Samsung TV? Just to be sure, the camera needs to be connected to the laptop, not directly to TV. Please confirm.

However, we still need to call non-Skype users. Is it possible to call non-Skype user (such as Polycom users with IP) using Skype or any possible way, without buying another video conferencing system?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hey all,

Looking for some input on recommended conferencing solution for team members that are particularly high maintenance.
Lync/Skype seems to be problematic due to conference ID + Pin authentication.
Do disposable/one-time use conferencing options exist to keep things secure and convenient?

Thanks!

I have a client that is interested in a video conference system to allow for one on one and team collaboration.  I have a dedicated high speed connection between offices and a large TV in each location.  It absolutely needs to be easy to use.  Walk up touch a screen (or whatever) and connect the two locations. I do not need scheduling, remote access, mobile, and other features that typically are included in VC solutions.  Does anyone have any thoughts?  Your comments are most appreciated.

Dears,

Currently we are using Free Skype account for our conference calls to connect with up to 10 users.  we have been having a performance and reliability issue (Audio) mainly.  I was wandering if Skype for Business has better performance with higher bandwidth available?  without the use of office 365.

I am not interested about the other features Skype for business have, my main concern is bandwidth, performance and reliability.

appreciate your support.
Thanks

I'm getting ready to deploy Skype for Business and replace our existing Lync 2013 Enterprise systems.  We've had an enterprise deployment with 2 front end servers since we migrated to 2013 from 2010.  We've used DNS load balancing as we don't have any hardware/virtual appliance load balancing systems.  Our plan is to use S4B Standard and just create a second server running as a failover pool in case of an issue.  

We have 280 Lync enabled employees, 150 of them with Enterprise Voice.  The Skype for Business server will be going on a server with 64GB of RAM, dual Intel Xeon E5-2650L v3 processors (total 2 Sockets, 24 cores, 48 logical procs, at up to 2.09GHz).

Will I have any issues moving the CMS back to a Standard Edition server?  Any other issues I should expect?

Hi,
We have an issue where using Skype for Business in an online meeting, the video freezes, and updates a couple of times a minute. In a peer to peer call the video is fine. Both conferences take place on our internal network.

Is there a difference in the video codec used in an online meeting and in a peer to peer call?

We have server Soundstation 2s and none of them will make a three way call.  We dial the 1st number hit the conference button dial the second number and hit the conference number again as per the instructions.  All that does is put the 1st caller on the line.  The conference button only switches between callers.

Hi

I have a requirement that need to be able to do video conferencing between local and remote office with PC, TV and microphones.

We need something that can be able to work/conference with Skype for Business and Webex.

Can anyone suggest a solution ? Can Polycom fit my requirement ? If not any other solution or better solution, can suggest ?

Thanks

I'm looking for advice with regard to a video conferencing solution for our business.

The business has offices in several countries, but there's no link between them - they all run as completely separate entities.

We'll be starting to have regular 'workshops' with members from different countries. It's planned that there will only be 5 or 6 people on each call, but they will be different people from different countries, and the call won't be instigated by the same person (or country) each time - indeed the 'leader' of one workshop may not be present on the next workshop. However, despite the changing participants, we want it to be run in a consistent, standard manner (ie we don't want each country bringing it's own solution to the table)

We're thinking of using Google Hangout (competitively priced!) but are not adverse to having to pay for a service if there's a better option.

Is there any good reason to try something else ahead of the Google offering (if so, what?). And are there any stumbling blocks that I'm going to face with this sort of global setup where anyone may be the 'leader' of a call?

(I know the following question is all over the internet, but I have a very limited time to make some decisions, so I'm going to ask this before doing due diligence via google. I assume the following is called either a webcast , or  streaming video, or  wirecast -- you tell me pls.)

I have a client who is going to create a powerpoint slideshow with audio clips for each slide. When it's done, we want to send a small group of ppl (20-50) an email with a link.  The link is to view a one-time pre-recorded video presentation (which can only be watched once, at one specific date and time). There's NO PRESENTER and no viewer interaction.

Since the presentation contains sensitive info, we want these conditions:
1) only those who have the link can see the video / presentation
2) it starts at time X and ends at time Y, so if you login at X:15 you'll miss 15 mins
3) we want to miminize ppls ability to "download it", by streaming, whatever technology (if that's still a relevant concept). But if that requires "extraordinary measures" we'll go with whatever's traditional.

Am I on the right track to be googling "how to webcast"?  That seems to lead either to "webinar" FAQs, or else to "do it yourself" broadcasts.  And websites like GoToWebinar and AnyMeeting seem to be about meetings, not one time streamed presentations.

Ideally I'd like to create a movie file out of the powerpoint file (w audio clips), upload it to some website (either free or pay), and they give me …

I'm setting up E911 services for our Lync 2010 system. I have a location policy defined for all Lync users, and it's working correctly (the SIP invite has the location information for the user).

I now need to cover the situation where someone dials 911 from a common area phone (like the ones in the lobby). Those phones do not have users logged in to them, so the location policy doesn't apply.

Using Grant-LocationPolicy doesn't work; no errors are generated, but the location policy attribute isn't part of what you see in Get-CsCommonAreaPhone.

we currently have cisco video conference systems and use TMS(TelePresence Management Suite) to manage the calls and bookings.

we are thinking of moving over to Lync but i am wondering if there is also an application like TMS that we can use to manage the Lync calls and alter live?
