Richer experience Conferencing is no longer a compromise when you have HD video, one-click desktop sharing, easy meeting requests, and even the ability to start a conference on a mobile phone and continue on a PC. Lync 2010 brings a single-client experience to users, making ad hoc collaboration and online meetings more convenient for participants and meeting organizers.
Control your conferences Participants can be placed in a “lobby” and then allowed in by the conference organizer, helping to prevent embarrassing errors or security issues from unauthorized forwarding of meeting invites. Conference organizers can also eject or mute participants after the conference has begun in order to control unwanted background noise.
Easily schedule and join conferences Set up online meetings right from Microsoft Outlook with an easy-to-use scheduling plug-in. Participants can join with one click from the PC as well as mobile and desktop phones.
Extend complete experience to outside users With the new thin client, users on any operating system can participate in online meetings, and anonymous users can attend and participate without downloading a rich client.
Easy anywhere access Participants can join an ad hoc collaboration session or online meeting using Microsoft Communicator, Microsoft Communicator Phone Edition, a private branch exchange (PBX) phone, a public switched telephone network (PSTN) phone, and even over the Internet using Communicator Web App. And Windows Phone users can join audio conferences with one click in Lync 2010.
Maximize the value of existing investments Lync 2010 conferencing works with your existing network, enterprise messaging, and telephony infrastructure, helping to maximize the value of existing investments.
Reduce costs Integrate ad hoc collaboration and online meetings with your Unified Communications platform rather than relying on expensive third-party conferencing solutions.
