As the conversation emerges, Clifton and Coleman dicuss the ever-present importance of system interoperabilityscalability and user experience, and outline some of the challenges met by enterprises.

In addition, the conversation covers the three most common ways to add existing videoconferencing users to Skype meetings:

  • Joining a scheduled Skype meeting
  • Making an ad-hoc point-to-point call in either direction
  • Escalating a conversation by dragging and dropping a VTC user from the Contacts list into a call

Ending with Q&A

As the SfB Broadcast is a live event, and broadcast from Microsoft’s Redmond campus, it ends with a Q&A session answering questions that have been asked during the show, covering such topics as pricing and licensing models, Outlook scheduling, if one needs to use plugins, and much more.
