THE BRIDGE

  • Every CLC VC has capability to handle 4 connections (internal bridge). This takes coordination (1-2, 1-3, 1-4…NOT 1-2,2-3,3-4)

  • The bridge is needed for more than 4 calls (and for all ISDN calls).

  • ISDN: integrated services digital network used for voice, video, and data transmission by telephone lines (much like dial-up internet)

  • IP: Internet Protocol (much like dsl/high speed).


Presentation or videoconference

Presentation OR Videoconference?

  • Using remote control is first choice.

    Q??? I press presentation on remote and my presentation doesn’t appear. Why?

    A!!! System is in another mode (DVD, VHS, Blueray, PC)
