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 Microsoft Skype for Business / Lync, a traditional conferencing endpoint, a mobile telephone, or a Pexip Infinity Connect client.

  • 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 Pexip Distributed Gateway.

  • Pexip Distributed Gateway is a service that:
    • enables endpoints within your deployment to make direct calls to other endpoints that use different protocols and media formats , including SIP and H.323 systems, Skype for Business / Lync (MS-SIP), and Infinity Connect clients (WebRTC and RTMP),
    • enables any type of endpoint, including traditional VTC endpoints, to join externally-hosted meeting services such as Skype for Business / Lync meetings, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts Meet,
    • 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.
  • The VMR Scheduling for Exchange feature, available with a separate license key, 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.

  • Test Call Service: Pexip Infinity 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.
