TeleVantage® Conference Manager

Scalable, Low-Cost Conferencing
TeleVantage Conference Manager is a powerful tool for creating automated, professional conference calls. With TeleVantage Conference Manager, you never need to manually create a conference. Callers to an extension are automatically welcomed and added to the conference bridge of their choice - plus you can have TeleVantage Conference Manager automatically place invitation calls to a list of people and add them to the conference. Virtual conference "rooms" let you conduct multiple conference calls simultaneously. Prompt calls for a particular conference room or automatically add them to a room based on the number dialed. Optionally configure password entry on a room-by-room basis, and even create moderated conferences that automatically mute all callers other than the moderator. Depending on your hardware configuration, TeleVantage Conference Manager can manage conference calls as large as 60 parties.

Teleconferences Have Never Been Easier to Arrange
The graphical TeleVantage Conference Room Administrator lets you schedule conference calls in advance, creating rooms that become available at a certain date and for a certain duration. Alternately, create conference rooms that are available all the time for on-the-fly conferences. An unlimited number of conference rooms can be created and the number of simultaneous conference calls are only limited by your hardware configuration. You can install the TeleVantage Conference Room Administrator on any PC that has a TeleVantage Client, so you can manage conference rooms from anywhere on the network.
