Host PINS and privileges for "23" video bridge conferences

Each "23" video bridge conference is configured with a host PIN of four to 10 digits. Only the host needs to know this PIN.

The host PIN provides an added layer of security by controlling access to the conference. Participants who know the 23 conference's alias but not the host PIN can connect to the conference at any time, but see a hold screen until the host joins and activates the meeting with the host PIN.

Note:
When connecting from a room system, you may need to press the pound key (#) on the remote before entering the host PIN.

Configuring the host PIN

To configure the host PIN when creating a 23 conference, see 23 Conference Creator Tools.

To change the host PIN from the 23 Conference Creator Tools, select Change 23 Conference host PIN. If you have assigned 23 conference delegates, they can change the host PIN on your behalf.

Do not change the host PIN while a meeting is in progress.

Muting and unmuting a conference participant's audio

Note:
Roster management functions are available only for participants who are logged in with the host PIN from the Pexip Web App or the Pexip mobile app.

To mute or unmute a participant, select the participant, and then toggle "Enable audio from Participant" ON or OFF. This will not affect participants' speakers or microphone settings; they will still hear the conference audio, but they will not be heard.

Adding and disconnecting conference participants

To add a participant, from the top of the participant list, click + (the plus sign), and then type an alias, such as:

  • Phone number (domestic U.S. only): <10-digit-phone-number>@vc.iu.edu
  • Skype for Business/Lync user ID: username@<iu domain>
  • IU room system alias: <system-name>@vc.iu.edu

    Non-IU room or user aliases are not supported at this time.

To disconnect a participant, select the participant, and then click Disconnect Participant.
