The ConX Video Meeting by InFocus is a cloud based video conferencing system that seamlessly connects video calls from different endpoints to a single experience. A ConX video call allows you to combine SIP, H.323, Skype for Business, WebRTC and analog audio calls in a meeting.
In principle, ConX Video Meeting is a SIP-based service that can be connected to any standard SIP video client. This includes software and hardware products from InFocus and other video conferencing systems such as Cisco, Polycom and LifeSize.
In addition, ConX Video Meeting enables the integration of non-SIP clients into the service, for example, Skype for Business (S4B).
We’ll explain how to use your Skype for Business client to access an InFocusConX video meeting room via its full SIP URL address.
How to join the video conference system ConX via Skype
Make sure that a current version of the Skype for Business (S4B) application is installed on your computer. If not, ask your IT department for help or click the following link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49440
- Start your S4B client and log in.
- In the address bar, you’ll find “Find Someone” (PC) or “Search for Contact” (Mac).
Here, enter the full address of the ConX video meeting. This always consists of the number of the respective virtual conference room and the address “@ infocus.net”. For example, for the conference room 8985 the URL “firstname.lastname@example.org” is valid.
- Click on the contact address with the right mouse button and select “Start Video Call”from the menu.
- If a PIN is required to participate in the conference, click the Call Control icon and enter the PIN, followed by the hash key. Example: 1234 #.
- Now you are connected to the ConX video meeting.
Share your screen with ConX video participants
If you want to share your screens with the conference participants, click the Monitor icon and follow the prompts to specifically select what you want to share.
Once shared, all other ConX participants can see the contents of your screen or application.
With ConX, you may easily connect face-to-face to your contacts and therefore use your already existing infrastructures and devices, such as InFocus touch screens, without any problems.Sharing, means caring:
