Video Bridge Service (BlueJeans) for Faculty / Depts.

Overview

The Video Bridge Service (BlueJeans) is a video conferencing solution that brings major hardware and software video platforms together into a uniform, collaborative user experience. You can easily connect your SIP or H.323 Room System video devices (such as Polycom, LifeSize, and Cisco/Tandberg) to a Video Bridge Service meeting and include participants using other technologies, including Skype for Business. The Video Bridge Service allows for synchronous playback across all meeting participants on room systems.

You can also connect (“pair”) your laptop to the room system and enable content sharing for a Video Bridge Service meeting, including presentations, spreadsheets and videos. The Video Bridge Service will share this content with remote meeting participants.
