Important:

UITS Collaboration Technologies retired the "23" video bridge (Pexip) on December 23, 2019. This includes all conferences that begin with the prefix 23- as well as the bridge.iu.edu and uits.iu.edu/bridge sites. Zoom has replaced the Pexip videoconferencing service; for more about moving your virtual meetings to Zoom, see Get started with Zoom.

While it is not possible to migrate a 23- conference number to the Zoom service, you can customize your Zoom Personal Meeting ID; for more, see What is Personal Meeting ID (PMI) and Personal Link?

Several options are available at Indiana University for video- and audio-enabled meetings and real-time online collaboration, including videoconferencing and client- or web-based meeting software. For more about available options, see Videoconferencing at IU.

Videoconferencing in meeting rooms

At IU, most H.323 compliant (videoconferencing) hardware and software are supported. Polycom and Cisco systems are the recommended stand-alone H.323 solutions.

For information on how to use the remote control for the Tandberg video system at Indiana University, consult IU's Tandberg Quick Start Guide (PDF).

  • Audio capabilities (for example, a sound card and speakers or headset)
  • A reliable high-bandwidth network connection
  • A standard USB webcam

Client- and web-based meeting software

Zoom

Zoom is a web collaboration tool available to all Indiana University students, faculty, and staff. Zoom provides high-quality audio and video, intuitive sharing and co-annotation tools, breakout rooms, whiteboarding tools, the ability to easily add content to meetings "on the fly", and the option to download meeting recordings as MP4 files. Standard Zoom meetings support up to 300 simultaneous participants.
