What is a Video Room Connector (VRC)?

Submitted by: Andrea Duke

Companies can often invest a lot of money in video room systems. And while these room-based systems are powerful, they often require IT involvement and restrict the ability to connect users who aren’t psychically in the room when video conferencing. Because of this, these costly investments can be grossly underutilized.

But there is a solution to overcome these barriers and connect participants who may be working remote. A video room connector (VRC) enables H.323 or SIP video room systems to communicate with desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
