Desktop Conferencing

Desktop videoconferencing allows individuals to connect their PC or Mac to other standards based videoconferencing endpoints. This allows users to connect to meetings and interviews or conduct research wherever they are without requiring a dedicated videoconference room. CVT supports and deploys Bluejeans and Cisco’s Jabber Video for desktop videoconferencing needs as it allows end users to call many different conferencing systems using a PC or Mac.

Jabber Video and Bluejeans allow desktop videoconferencing to other desktop videoconference clients, telepresence suites, hardware based videoconference classrooms, and meeting rooms, and all other standards based videoconferencing endpoints.

Jabber Video and Bluejeans features include:

  • High Definition video and audio
  • Ability to share desktops
  • Ability to bring in multiple sites
  • Ability to mix desktop videoconferencing and “room” based videoconferencing
  • Ability to bring in telephone calls
