Virtual Meeting Room

A Virtual Meeting Room (VMR) is a cloud based meeting space without the constraints of a physical room. It can host any number of participants from a variety of devices including videoconference enabled rooms, computers/laptops, tablets and smart phones.

Each Virtual Meeting Room has one or more aliases associated with it, for example av@vmr.jcu.edu.au. Participants connect to the Virtual Meeting Room by dialing the alias thereby connecting everyone to the same meeting space.

Virtual Meeting Rooms can be PIN-protected and/or locked or limited to a maximum number of participants

Host and Guest privileges can be assigned to conference participants.

Videoconferencing and Audio Visual Services manage the issuing of Virtual Meeting Rooms from the Pexip Infinity Administrator interface.

The current license agreement allows for the issue of 160 VMRs. Virtual Meeting Rooms do not consume resources on the deployment unless they are actually being used to host a conference. Unless you manually restrict access, the number of participants who can access a particular Virtual Meeting Room, and the number of Virtual Meeting Rooms that can be in use at the same time, are limited only by the size of your Pexip Infinity deployment.

We are keen to hear about your virtual meeting room experiences and therefore invite you to fill out a short
VMR online survey.
