  • Page 7: Meetings

    Meetings The virtual spaces or locations for conducting communications via the HD VISUAL COMMUNICATION SERVER are referred to as “Meetings”.

  • Page 8: H.323 Alias And Gatekeeper

    H.323 Alias and Gatekeeper An H.323 Alias is a unique name assigned for each H.323 terminal, User or Meeting. The User name of a H.323 terminal registered with the gatekeeper is assigned as the User’s H.323 Alias. This system is used because having a set of easily-identifiable numbers or characters to designate other Users is a much simpler method than using IP Addresses.
