Teams Connector enhancements: "failed sharing" messages for Attendees

 

Depending on meeting roles, Attendees may not have permission to share a presentation. We now notify users that they are not sharing their presentations in the meeting.

 


Improving Privacy & Security

 

Client TURN server provisioning and new TURN server authentication methods

 

When configuring TURN servers for use with Pexip Infinity:

  • You can now select an authentication type of Username & Password or Time-limited credentials (a new option to support the new Direct Media / end-to-end encryption feature). 

  • You must now configure the transport type for each TURN server (UDP, TLS, or TCP).

  • When defining system locations, you can specify one or more Client TURN servers that will be provisioned to Infinity Connect WebRTC clients that connect to a Conferencing Node. 

 

"System integrity is compromised" administrator alarm

 

A new "System integrity is compromised" alarm is raised if one or more of the Pexip Infinity system files have been modified by an external party/event.



Improving the Admin experience 

 

Decluttering your Live View

 

If you have a very busy deployment, you can disable conferences and backplanes from the Live View for an improved viewing experience.

Support for direct media between two WebRTC participants * 

 

VMRs can now support non-transcoded, encrypted, point-to-point calls between two WebRTC participants. This was designed primarily for Video Enablement applications that require E2EE for point-to-point sessions. Resulting in reduced Infinity platform costs as media is direct between the clients.
