Conferencing Software

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.

A client has a separate construction site in the next state in a trailer. Both locations have broadband service.  They were asking about "video conferencing" between their meeting room for 10 people with 1 or 2 people at this remote site.

This would be once in a while, maybe 2 times a month for an hour at a time. At the main office they do have a 50" TV on the wall.

I looked on line for a documenting a spectrum of options but came up empty. That at least is what I envision is available?

I could see the low end being that they could use a laptop's webcam fed to the TV on the wall. Maybe spin the laptop sitting in the center of the table around to see the person speaking. And at the construction site, they could use a laptop with camera.

And the upper end could have several cameras that can be turned and zoomed, mics around the room and better quality speakers.

Does anyone have advice on options, prices and how to help them decide what they need and want?

Thank you.

I hear that waiting until the URL for a meeting arrives for first set up WebEx can be time consuming. So, is there a way to do this initialization beforehand?

Thanks.

I have a pair of C-level users who both experienced a problem at one of my sites. I'm trying to determine if it's a GoToMeeting problem (not my problem) or a phone problem (definitely my problem). You guys will give me a quick answer, I just know it. :-)

When the users join the audio portion of a GoToMeeting event from their Cisco desk phones (on my CUCM-powered phone system), right after the point where they enter their PIN number for the meeting, they are supposed to press the pound key "#" to join the audio part of the meeting. Every time each of them presses the "#" key on their desk phones, either the meeting or the phone hangs up the call. When they join using their cell phones it works fine.

This just started happening and no changes have recently been made to the phones or the CUCM settings. I'm told that it happened once before but was not reported, and that other occasion occurred several months ago but then the conditions returned to normal operation and they didn't see this again until yesterday.

Can I get some opinions on which party is responsible?

Thanks experts!

We are looking for a video conferencing/desktop sharing tool which api would allow us to generate a link which we could send to the person who we would like to connect to our desktop and view our screen. What video conferencing/desktop sharing tool would you suggest for us in this situation? Besides being able to show my desktop to the person I have sent out the link to, I would also like to be able to have two way audio. It is important to note that we are not talking about a stand alone tool like GoToMeeting or Google Hangouts, but would like to create a web app that would generate this link via the video conferencing tools api which we then could send out via our own web app.

Whenever I create a Skype for Business Meeting, it has the same URL for every meeting I create.  So if there are overlap meetings, someone can join that meeting even though I didn't invite them.  The format is https://meet.domainname.com/username/PSN9R4BL

This url never changes, anyway to change this URL?  We are not using PTSN.

I appreciate the help!

Hi All,

Can anyone here please suggest how to do the 24x7 Skype conference call between two remote office location?

At the moment I'm using Free Skype to show the two meeting room from different cities so that they can just walk in and then arrange the time to discuss without having to contact IT to dial in the other meeting room PC.

But the problem with Free Skype is that you cannot leave the connection running for 24x7 or schedule it so that after the PC reboot, it automatically dials the other meeting room.

My requirements:
24x7 audio & video call between two computer with Webcam in two different cities.
automatically re-establish the connection if it is disconnected.

Does Skype For Business can do this or even the Free Skype can be scripted?

One of my users is trying to watch some webinars that requires the Adobe Connect add-in.  The issue is that after installing the add-in under their profile it does not work and they are prompted again to download and install.  If I install the add-in under my profile (I'm an admin), it installs correctly and works.  I tested by making the user a local admin of their machine and had no issue installing or using the add-in.  Once I removed the user from the local admins group I was back to square one.  Is there a way to make this work for a non-admin or is this a bug with Adobe's software.

Thanks for your assistance!

Has anybody been able to get the Sony EVI-D70 camera work with Skype on either a Windows or Mac?  I have tried the Startech SVID2USB23 and the Hauppauge USB-LIVE2 adapters using both S-Video and Composite video...no luck.  Skype will not pick up the camera.  It recognizes both adapters but won't connect to the video.  If I try the same camera with Google Hangouts, Webex, GoToMeeting and Join.Me, all those services find the camera with no problems using either adapters.  I have tried changing the webcam settings, downloading obscure drivers, etc., and nothing works.  I have tried Win 7, 8 and 10...no luck.  Mac OS 9 and 10...no luck.  If I call Sony, they say they are not responsible for Skype.  If I call Skype, they say they have a list of approved webcams on their site.  If you are using a non-approved webcam, they cannot help.

Please advise.

Hi
One of our staff is going to teach in a Classroom-A with 30 students. He will be using overhead projector and a screen and will be doing a PowerPoint presentation and using internet as well.
I would like to broadcast the same screen that is happening  in Classroom-A to Classroom-B
I would like the students in Classroom-B to hear what the teacher teaches in Classroom –A  and also when the students ask any questions from Classroom B this must be audible to the teacher in classroom B and when he answers this must be heard in classroom B

Both classroom have projectors and speakers and PC.
Please let me know how I can achieve this.
Any help would be great.

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.

Hello EE,

We have an SX20 (Site 1) calling to or from SX20 (Site 2) across corporate MPLS.
Audio is fine
Video is fine at Site 1
Video is pixelating at Site 2
QOS is on the routers but there are no dropped packets so looking at the SX20 shows
at Site 1 Loss of Packets on Transmit.

What could cause this?

I am looking for a web application, preferably free, that will allow me to stream a meeting, password protect the meeting and also log attendance from each recipient.  It might be too much to ask, but is there something that does what I just asked?

Is there a way to record both audio and video of a conference when using the dial in feature of the conference.
Currently the only way I can see to be able to record a conference is to use the Skype audio option when joining.
I am aware that Verba and a couple others offer a third party solution to this but was wondering if it can be done within the Skype system alone.

I have never used a podcast and need some advice if a podcast is the right technology for me.

I need to have a free "seminar" service which people can log into and watch me live, or watch the show after the fact. I need to share my desktop with attendees and have my voice as well. What desktop sharing options are there?

What's the difference between a live desktop sharing session and a podcast?

Where does Ted Talk for in?

Also, I need to potentially require a ticket price per seat, but attendance will be free for starters. But I do need, from the day of launch, a feature where viewers can easily give a charitable contribution. I could easily use my PayPal account for contributions.

What kinds of guidance can you provide me?

I assume my seminar series would start with a few number of attendees, so having some expensive back-end is not a feasible solution. Also, I have a sharply political message, so I assume Ted Talks may be off limits. Is this true?

Thanks

We are in the process of deploying Skype for business to our infrastructure.
the question that came up was which method of call processing is preferable and what are the pro's and cons of each or of using both.

in my research i haven't found a definitive reason for one over the other (at least for basic call menus)

specifically this is the question i'm asking.
if anyone has any insight into this that would help.

Does anyone know of any software where a user can cast from their laptop to another screen via a url?

What we want is for the conferencing screen to have its own casting url for visitors to connect to which will cast their laptop screen.

Thanks

We have Skype Events id 5156 of audit success in our Windows 2008 R2 each second or each minute. What could be the reason for so many Events id 5156 of Skype? Is there a way to avoid Skype to post so many Events id 5156 on the Event Viewer without damaging works correctly ? Because is not comfortable be filled of garbage each second. This is the example of the Event id where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is our static IP:

The Windows Filtering Platform has permitted a connection.

Application Information:
      Process ID:            5772
      Application Name:      \device\harddiskvolume1\program files (x86)\skype\phone\skype.exe

      Source Address:            xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
      Source Port:            12936
      Destination Address:      157.56.52.35
      Destination Port:            40030

Filter Information:
      Filter Run-Time ID:      215063
      Layer Name:            Connect

Sometimes there are events of audit failed but never stops posting.
