Videoconferencing

Your Requirement

You own a video conferencing system and you want to perform and manage video conferencing with one or more partners simultaneously to discuss your scientific projects. Or you want to use web-based video conferencing capabilities such as application and data sharing, chat or document exchange by using standard web browser software.

Our Offer

By connecting your video conferencing system to one of our gatekeeper servers you will be able to use the video conferencing services of the DFN, such as multi-point conferences directly from your system. All conferencing systems based on the H.323 ITU standard are supported. Alternatively, the web conferencing service of the DFN provides a flash-based way to transfer audio/video in a multi- point fashion and, if requested, for example your own desktop too.
