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.

All OVGU staff have the option of planning and organising a video conference. The login using the DFN-AAI service and the OVGU account

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.
