Why use HybridLink for Teams?

HybridLink for Teams is designed for local authorities looking to increase security and efficiency in their hybrid council meetings, including unified voting, speaker queue management and true parity of experience for both remote and in-room participants. HybridLink for Teams is also fully compatible with Connect Webcasting for easy streaming and recording of meetings.


Convenient for local councils that are already accustomed to Microsoft Teams, HybridLink for Teams offers seamless integration with existing video conference tools. Councillors no longer need to learn how to use another video conference software.

Speaker queue management

The operator can see all participants – remote and local – and manage speakers. The queue is visible in the chamber and remote attendees using Teams can see their position in the queue and get prompts to speak.

Simplified voting

HybridLink for Teams allows all attendees to vote simultaneously. Attendees in the chamber cast their votes through their conference microphones, while remote participants vote via Microsoft Teams. The operator can see the results clearly displayed and tallied automatically.

Additional security

Operators can add or remove participants (or members of the public) for some parts of the meeting. Moreover, the identity of the participants is secured by the Council and their vote is linked to their usual MS Teams login.


HybridLink for Teams does not disrupt your current council workflows and it also integrates fully with existing Bosch Dicentis or Televic Cocon conference systems in the chamber.
