About the "23" video bridge conference service

On this page:


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 (IU UniCom client)
  • Telephone (as a voice-only participant)
  • Chrome or Firefox

Create a 23 conference

IU faculty and staff may create a 23 conference by submitting the automated form at https://uits.iu.edu/bridge/manage.

Once created, your 23 conference is permanent and ready to receive calls anytime. The host controls access to the conference with an extra host PIN.

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 cthelp@iu.edu.

Connect to a 23 conference

Every "23" video bridge conference has two aliases: a conference number, and a conference name. To connect to your conference, enter either 23<4-to-7-digit-number> or meet.name.

For connection instructions, see Create or join a "23" video bridge conference at IU.

Skype for Business (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 screen sharing button. Skype for Business will also receive computer content (for example, from a conference room system) in high resolution.

About large meetings

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 Zoom. For help matching the appropriate collaboration technology platform to your event, email cthelp@iu.edu or call 812-856-2020.
