Empowering VTCs for Active Participation in Video Meetings

For far too long, video conferencing terminals (VTCs) have been relegated to the role of passive observers in web meetings. Synergy CONNECT is here to change that. Our innovative solution transforms VTCs into active participants, equipping them with a powerful suite of features designed to enhance the meeting experience for all users.
