ICT
  • To connect using a different technology platform
  • A few health services only use 'standards-based' hardware, also sometimes called 'traditional video-conferencing systems'. Video Call cannot connect with these.
  • The health service will give you a 'dial-in' address that looks like a phone number or includes an '@' or '#'.
  • Using Peter Mac equipment and room VC set-up, for example:
    - Meeting room projectors
    - Log in to conference phones
