Videoteleconference (VTC) equipment, FAQs:

- Can the audio/video from videoconference meetings be recorded?
   No. Unfortunately, we do not have the expensive extra equipment required for recording.

- Can the systems accept regular phone calls?
   Yes. The system will accept one phone call only, to be combined with the video if desired. For more than one telephone caller, an external phone bridge service has to be used. More info here.

- Are the systems IP or ISDN based?
   All VTC systems operate exclusively on IP protocols (H.323). ISDN-based (H.320) calls are not supported.

- Can the remote participant show computer content from their side?
   Yes, as long as their system support dual-stream, video + computer (known as H.239 standard) transmission. All our systems have that capability.

- How many sites can be connected in a videoconference meeting?
   The systems will support up to six sites, including the local participants.
