Why use HybridLink?
Hybrid meetings offer people the chance to attend meetings in a way which is suitable for their circumstances. Hybrid Link facilitates these meetings with all the features of a traditional council meeting. Most importantly, it offers a great user experience for all attendees: remote or present.
No additional hardware needed
Hybrid Link integrates with the Bosch Dicentis and Televic Cocon conference systems, so there is no need to change your pre-existing hardware. In-chamber participants do not need to bring their own devices (which avoids bandwidth or device compatibility issues).
With Hybrid Link, all attendees can vote at the same time using the same system. In-chamber attendees vote using their conference microphones as usual; remote participants vote through their video conference tool. The results are clearly displayed and automatically tallied.
Speaker queue management
The operator can see all participants – remote and local – and manage speakers. The queue is visible for participants in the room and remote attendees can see their position in the queue.
Multilingual hybrid meetings
Using Connect Remote multi-language feature, we can also make hybrid meetings work for Welsh local authorities who require dual-language meetings to be simultaneously available in Welsh and English.
