The VidyoPortal is a Web–based environment administrators can use to manage the VidyoConferencing™ system. And it´s so incredibly straightforward, in fact, that even ordinary conference participants can use it to initiate meetings – via the Web – from anywhere. VidyoPortal´s flexible interface features single–click–action buttons that take care of everything required to initiate a conference.
Also, regardless of whatever endpoint system you might happen to be using, VidyoPortal provides a consistent environment that´s compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.
For end users, the portal can be accessed through a range of endpoints that run VidyoDesktop™ or VidyoRoom™. For first–time users, there´s a simple sign–in or authentication procedure. Guest users can also be allowed access to the system, assuming organization policies permit that. All functions required to initiate or join a video conference are supported, including:
- Adding participants to a conference
- Defining calling features, such as speed–dial
- Searching or browsing for other users
- Setting personal account preferences
For administrators, the VidyoPortal serves as a central management environment offering abilities to:
- Set system–wide parameters and policies
- Establish end–user and association privileges
- Control and customize user conferencing capabilities
And for MS Office Communicator users, you can by–pass the portal and access the VidyoDesktop client directly from your MOC contact list using Vidyo´s MOC plug–in.
