About Pexip Infinity conferences

The Pexip Infinity platform offers a variety of conference types and services:

  • Virtual Meeting Rooms and Virtual Auditoriums are used to hold conferences, share presentations, and chat. Participants can join over audio or video from any location using virtually any type of communications tool, such as Skype for Business, a traditional conferencing endpoint, a mobile telephone, or a Pexip Connect app.

  • The Virtual Reception IVR service provides a way for conference participants who cannot dial Virtual Meeting Room and Virtual Auditorium aliases directly, to access these services from a central point using DTMF tones. It can also be used to route calls via the Infinity Gateway.

  • The Pexip Infinity Distributed Gateway:

    • Enables any type of endpoint, including traditional VTC endpoints, to join externally-hosted meeting services such as Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.
    • Enables endpoints within your deployment to make direct calls to other endpoints. As with calls into VMRs, the gateway can interwork the protocols and media formats used by each type of device (SIP, H.323, WebRTC etc).
    • Can be used with call control systems and other third party services to enable calls from your deployment to external devices including PSTN and mobile phones.
  • Pexip's Media Playback Service allows you to play prerecorded video content (such as adverts and informational videos) to consumers. When the media finishes playing, the user can be transferred to another service, such as a VMR conference, or they can be disconnected.

  • VMR Scheduling for Exchange integrates Pexip Infinity with Microsoft Exchange. It enables Microsoft Outlook desktop and Web App users (using Office 365, Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2016) to schedule meetings using Pexip VMRs as a meeting resource.

  • Pexip's One-Touch Join (OTJ) allows users to schedule a meeting in Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar and include in the invitation a meeting room with a supported Cisco or Poly videoconferencing endpoint, so that the endpoint in the chosen meeting room displays a Join button just before the meeting is scheduled to begin. Participants can then simply walk into the room and select the button, and the endpoint will automatically dial in to the meeting.

  • A Test Call Service provides a test loopback service that allows users to check the quality of their video and audio (i.e. that their local camera, microphone and speakers are working properly), and verifies that they can connect to a Conferencing Node.

The Live view page (Status > Live View) lets you review current and historic usage charts showing a breakdown of participants by location, protocol, license type and the different conference types being hosted.
