What is a group conference?

You can create or join a multi video chat with several users at the same time.

For example, the mode '6x6' is open, which means six people can see and hear each other. Each user see's five chat partners, as well as himself. The window divides into six parts. You can switch off the sound or video from each user, if you don't like the quality.

At this point, your internet link load is several times greater than usual and the overall traffic grows. Your PC's processor usage is also higher than usual.

How can I start a group conference?

Press the button 'Group Conference' in your Conferendo client. A window with the Conference Wizard appears. The Wizard contains two users lists and also allows you to select desired type of video conference.

The list on the left contains your address book contacts. The right-hand one is initially empty. If you mark a contact's name on the left-hand list and press the arrow button (or just double-click the contact's name), the arrow goes to the right. At the bottom of the Wizard window there is a button labeled "Start Group Conference" click it to start video conference.

After the initial session, the users listed on the right get invitations, which they can either accept or decline.

Who is a host in a group conference?

The initiator of a group conference becomes its "master" (host) for as long as the conference lasts. Once the host leaves the conference (breaks off conversation), the conference is considered as over and all participants are disconnected.

How can I join a group conference?

All you have to do is contact a host. If the host agrees (and if there's room for another user), you're in.

How can I leave a group conference?

The same way as you would leave an ordinary video chat. Just press the 'red tube' button.

I'm not the host, but I'm got out of the conference (for example the connection is lost). Can I return?

Yes, if the conference is not over yet (i.e., if the host hasn't left) and there are still free places. Call the host and ask to rejoin.

How many people can use the group conference at one time now?

Up to 120 users can participate in group conference using 2x120 conference mode. In this mode only two users are visible and active all other users are spectators.

In 6x6 mode you can invite up to 5 another users to your conference. You will see 6 video windows and each user could see and hear everybody else.

I can hear some users better than others. Can I do something about that?

You can adjust the sound volume for each user. Just point the your mouse at the user's window and select Volume Level from the opening menu. This configuration is only for your PC and doesn't affect the other users.

How far the channels loading changes within a group conference?

Incoming traffic grows in direct proportion to the number of users you see. So if you chat with three people, your traffic triples, as compared with a simple video call. Outgoing traffic remains as usual.

How is a group conference designed?

The conference is supported by our server. During the conference you are connected only with it. That's why your traffic is used more wisely and effectively.

Can I see the group conference in full screen mode?

Yes. Simply click the 'Full Screen' button.

Yes, you can. Just drag and drop a window to whatever place you choose.
