Video Conferencing

To support communication in teams we provide alternative video conferencing to Zoom and Teams.

  • All solutions run in the web browser.
  • All communication is encrypted.
  • No authentication is required and therefore can easily be used to communicate with external people too.
  • No password protection but the URL shared among meeting participants can have a secret component.

Only Google Chrome (or Chromium based browsers) and iOS Safari are know to work reliably for all. Please make sure that all participants use a suitable browser before the event.
