Videokonferenzen mit DFNconf / Pexip
Based on the conference service of the German Research Network DFNconf, the computer center provides a possibility to organize video and web conferences in different stages of expansion. These can be simple video calls, but also multipoint conferences with many participants at different locations.
Organizer of a video conference
Participant of a video conference
Meeting participants who have received an invitation to a meeting and only want to attend need not register for the service.
Normally you receive the invitation in an Email that contains various ways to access the meeting room. Select the type of participation that is suitable for you.
The DFN does not impose any restrictions on participants, so external parties (e.g. partners in industry and business or similar) may be invited and participate.

Test Call Service
The DFN provides a meeting room for self-testing.
With one call you can test the connection to the meeting server, your video and your microphone. You will receive some instructions and your video and audio will be sent back to you (with a 2 second delay to hear yourself). After about 20 seconds, the connection is automatically terminated.
