Bridging

The bridge (Multipoint Control Unit, or MCU) facilitates the connection of more than two videoconferencing endpoints into a conference session and gives you the ability to:

  • Provide a rendezvous point for endpoints connected across diverse network infrastructures
  • Support a consistent experience across multiple endpoints
  • Manage network resources
  • Enable the attendance of a wider remote audience for lecture/course content in a multi-point call 
  • Support up to 40 simultaneous videoconferencing connections at up to 720p at 30fps.

The service does not currently support Full High Definition (1080p at 30fps). If you require this, please email vc_service@usask.ca with your special request which will be accommodated if possible.
