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

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.

IU faculty and staff may create a 23 conference by submitting the automated form at https://www.indiana.edu/~video/pexip/. For connection instructions, see At IU, how can I create or join a videoconference?

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.

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. Skype for Business/Lync will also receive computer content (e.g., from a conference room system) in high resolution.

For help or to learn more, contact UITS Classroom & Conferencing Support (cthelp@iu.edu, 812-856-2020, Skype for Business/Lync: cthelp).
