Pexip Infinity is a scalable meeting platform which provides a Virtual Meeting Room solution to management, staff and colleges at JCU.
Clients include all standards-based endpoints (including those from Cisco, Polycom, Lifesize, Sony, Huawei, Radvision and other vendors that use H.323, SIP, H.263, H.264 SVC, RTV, VP8 and RDP), as well as Lync 2010, 2013, and even Lync Online (Office 365).
Pexip Infinity is natively interoperable with Lync/Skype for Business (SfB) however interoperation is currently limited to inbound calls to JCU VMR from external (non-JCU domains) SfB.
Pexip Infinity closely integrates with WebRTC-supporting clients like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, so that users without any other tool than their web browser can join the same meetings as everyone else.
For non-WebRTC supporting browsers like Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple Safari, Pexip supports video conferencing though Flash-based video. Flash is already installed for most users, allowing them to enjoy video calls with no additional downloads as well.
Pexip Infinity enables all these technologies to connect in any combination and any configuration.
Please check out the connection guides for more information and in preparation for your Virtual Meeting Room experience.

A Virtual Meeting Room (VMR) is a personal virtual meeting space that is always available for use. It can host any number of people from any type of device.
Each Virtual Meeting Room has one or more aliases associated with it. Participants access the Virtual Meeting Room by dialing any one of its aliases - this will route them all to the same conference.
Participants can access Virtual Meeting Rooms from any video endpoint, from a web browser or by using one of Pexip's Infinity Connect clients (desktop app and smartphones and tablets).
You can place a limit on the number of participants that can access a Virtual Meeting Room as well as protecting access by PINs and lock rooms if required.
Administrators manage Virtual Meeting Rooms from the Pexip Infinity Administrator interface. See a list of issued VMRs.
