Every video meeting invitation looks different, and it can be complicated to interpret what to dial to get into the meeting. This leads to frustration and delays in the start of meetings or people refusing to use video conferencing rooms.
But relax; Synergy SKY CONNECT will do that job for your meetings by taking any meeting invitation and producing a green button that will connect you to your meeting on time. Included in the Synergy SKY service is a gateway making this the only service your video room need.
Connect with ease to all meetings from your video conference room
Video meeting invitations have different information depending on the meeting service.
Web conferences typically have a link called a URL that is clickable from a computer, but not understandable by a video-conference room with a SIP video system, typically Cisco and Poly.
Video conference invitations have a URI, an alphanumeric address that you can dial from video conference systems, for example, email@example.com. And a URI is not possible to dial from a PC
The third option is the "all-in-one" approach where all options are listed: Dial-in based on your geo location, from PC, Linux, MAC, Meeting ID, join with VTC, telephone, etc.
Synergy SKY has a Meeting Synchronization engine that takes care of all invitations. By using matching rules and algorithms, we are able to understand what type of meeting it is and send the correct information to the video room you choose to invite. The receiving video system will then display a green button with meeting information such as the subject, organizer, and time.
Same user experience on all Cisco devices
