StarLeaf recently launched Medley, an entirely free Skype for Business interoperability service that brings any H.323 or SIP video conferencing system straight into a scheduled Skype Meeting. This means anyone, whether within your company or external, can now be invited and join your Skype for Business meeting with no additional hardware, no downloads or plug-ins, no sign-up, no limits, and no charge! It does not matter which video conferencing system is used – Cisco, Lifesize, Polycom, Avaya, etc – everyone’s invited and the process is exactly the same.
How to use StarLeaf Medley
Top Tips for using StarLeaf Medley
Ready to try it out for yourself? Take a look at our top tips below to make the most of your Medley meeting.
Don’t mix your meetings
StarLeaf Medley is specifically designed for scheduled Skype for Business video meetings held on the Microsoft AV/MCU, inviting it to a different kind of meeting won’t work.
Timing is everything
You or your Medley invitees can join the Skype for Business video meeting up to ten minutes in advance. Don’t be too keen and join any earlier – this is not an always-open VMR, this is a secure, one-time connection.
It’s time to federate
If your Skype for Business set-up does not allow for video calls from the Internet, you will have to enable this to allow Medley to dial in. Again, we’ve made it totally simple and you can find out more about this here.
Medley won’t override your Skype for Business settings, so make sure the Skype for Business meeting you want to invite people to is set-up to allow external people to both join and share content. Find out more here.
StarLeaf Medley forms part of the StarLeaf range of Skype for Business connection solutions and is just one of the ways StarLeaf opens up video communication for everyone, no matter what they use. Book a demonstration with us to find out more about these solutions.
