TrueConf Announces the Release of New Free Video Conferencing Software Room Endpoint

TrueConf has released TrueConf Terminal 2.0, a new free software room endpoint designed for meeting and conference rooms. The program is installed on Windows PCs, and users can manage their terminals through their web browser.

TrueConf Terminal 2.0 is the first free video conferencing software designed for use with meeting rooms. Users can assemble their own video conferencing terminal on a Windows-based PC or laptop.

TrueConf Terminal 2.0 users are free to choose any peripheral AV devices. To achieve perfect sound and video quality, all you need to do is connect your terminal to a speakerphone, PTZ-camera via USB, and a screen or a TV-panel via HDMI. You can set up and manage your terminal through any browser.

When connected to TrueConf Server, our room endpoint provides interoperability with existing video conferencing endpoints by means of H.323/SIP/BFCP protocols, telephony and Active Directory integration. TrueСonf Terminal 2.0 can also run multipoint conferences for up to 120 participants in Ultra HD resolution. The software room endpoint can be used through TrueConf Online cloud and can be used to run free multipoint conferences over the Internet without considerable investments into infrastructure.

TrueConf Terminal 2.0 is equipped with a built-in API which helps you integrate your endpoint with any conference room control system and offers the potential to create specialized solutions for telemedicine, video banking, kiosks and remote consulting services. The control function is conducted over API using interface created by the customer.

"Video conferencing market is moving towards universal PC-based solutions, which will gradually crowd out specialized legacy video conferencing systems," says Dmitrii Odintsov, TrueConf's Business Development Director. "There are several major factors: firstly, we can see strong demand for quality peripheral equipment, which is becoming more affordable. Secondly, a modern meeting room has to meet a lot of challenges which are already beyond the reach of traditional video conferencing systems. A conference room can no longer operate without a PC equipped with a full set of different collaboration applications".
