What you need for Jabber

Webcam, microphone & speakers (or a mic headset).

CMS Cloud Bridging
NETS has leased CMS for the purpose of bridging PC & mobile users to video rooms & other CMS co-space meeting rooms.

Using a Chrome browser:

Users with a web cam can join conferences from their PC or mobile device with a Chrome browser by clicking on a URL.

NETS members have been given their own co-spaces for independent meetings not accessing video conference rooms.
