What is a "23" video bridge conference?
A "23" video bridge conference is a videoconference meeting service on the IU video bridge. Multiple participants can join a 23 conference at up to HD video quality from a wide variety of videoconferencing room systems and software clients, including:
- Room systems
- Skype for Business/Lync (IU UniCom client)
- Telephone (as a voice-only participant)
- Chrome or Firefox
Like all conferences on the IU video bridge, a 23 conference is generally best for interactive meetings with no more than 15 participants. For larger meetings and one-to-many information-sharing and seminar events, UITS recommends using Adobe Connect, iStream, or Echo360. For help matching the appropriate collaboration technology platform to your event, email

Adobe Connect, IU's web collaboration and conferencing system, will be retired on August 31, 2017. After a comprehensive pilot evaluation, Zoom has been selected as its replacement. For more, see About the Adobe Connect retirement.
Over the next few months, UITS will be converting all Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format. By early summer, you will be able to save converted files to your computer and upload them to Box or Kaltura.

23 conferences can play a soft "doorbell" tone as participants join and leave the conference. If you'd like entry/exit tones applied to your existing 23 conference, send email to
Skype for Business/Lync (Windows and Mac) can connect to a 23 conference at up to HD resolution. Share your screen to the conference using the Skype for Business/Lync screen sharing button.
