Latest News Article: LGfL Cisco Jabber high definition video conferencing
Jabber is the latest new service from LGfL, providing high definition video conferencing (VC) to your desktop or laptop computer or an iPad. Jabber seamlessly interfaces with H323 endpoints in your school and elsewhere on the LGfL network or via the JVCS booking service to allow conferencing between diverse systems.
The Jabber service is available at no additional cost to all staff in LGfL subscribing schools – just add a camera, a microphone and your USO login. The service enables desktop conferencing at up to full HD video with industry standard echo cancellation. For the best quality a camera such as the PrecisionHD USB camera (image below) should be used, which has been developed specifically for Jabber, and provides 1280x720 video at 30fps.
Jabber can be used from outside the LGfL network as well as within, allowing you to join conferences from anywhere and also allows desktop or individual application sharing – perfect for giving a presentation.
