To get the best quality out of your video conference solution you need a good display to watch it on. We are aware that you may already have a number of Interactive whiteboards and screens in your class room.  As part of our pre-sales service we will carry out checks to ensure that your display is fully compatible with the video conference system and that you can continue to use it for presentations when the video conference system is switched off.

Connect IP to ISDN & Multi Point Bridging
There are two types of networks for video conferencing namely IP or ISDN. In the beginning everybody connected using ISDN since IP networks were not fast or cheap enough for video conferencing. Fast forward 10 Years and IP networks have become both cheap and fast, resulting in a migration away from ISDN to IP.

There are a significant number of organisations who still use video conferencing over ISDN which creates an issue for people who have migrated to IP. Why? Because the two networks are not compatible and so won’t talk to each other. The solution is to bridge the video conference call.

The video conferencing bridge, aka ‘The Bridge’ has two main functions; it connects ISDN to IP and visa versa and it connects several sites in a multipoint video conference call. Video conference bridging is as you might imagine it; at the most basic level, two locations sides dial in and meet in the middle, The bridge connects the two locations so that they can see and hear each other and share data.

Why do I need a bridge?
The most common reason for bridging is to bring multiple sites together in a single call. This practice is commonly known as multipoint bridging or multipoint call.
All solutions for schools provided by video lease ship with the ability to video conference with up to 4 sites as standard and can connect with up to 12 sites on demand (NO UPGRADE REQUIRED).

Data Sharing
During your video conference you may want to illustrate a point with a graph, PowerPoint, or even a spreadsheet. Data sharing allows you to connect you pc or laptop to the video conference and share whatever is on your screen with everybody in the video conference. This practice is commonly known as data sharing. If you are data sharing in a single screen environment, you will see your presentation as the main image and you will see the far end as a small picture in picture.
