PanTerra Networks announced two new Connect team conferencing features providing business flexible options for video collaboration meetings. Meeting Rooms enables any company Streams users to create a Streams Connect session from the convenience of their office that can then be initiated from a physical company meeting or conference room. The Join Without Moderator feature allows a Connect session to be started and joined by participants without requiring the meeting’s moderator to be present.
Meeting Rooms allows any company Streams user to remotely create a Connect session for a specific physical meeting room within a company building. These new features work in conjunction with Outlook/Google’s meeting room scheduling feature to allow users to schedule a Connect session for a physical meeting room. The user that creates the session is the “Session Creator” while the Meeting Room Streams user that initiates the session is the Moderator. Thus, a corporate administrator or meeting coordinator can conveniently create, coordinate, and set up Connect video conferencing sessions for different physical meeting rooms within the company. An additional optional security PIN prevents unauthorized users from starting a Meeting Room session.
