Connect your teams with the experience they love, in the Office applications they use every day. Now, with Skype for Business you can simplify your infrastructure with one platform for calling, conferencing, video, and sharing.
Skype Meetings provide audio, video, and web conferencing on the Internet, with the ability to schedule a meeting in advance or start one at any time. Up to 250 people can join a meeting, using the smartphones, tablets, PCs, phones, and meeting room devices.
Single touch join
Join easily with a single touch or click from your calendar, meeting reminder, or the Skype for Business client.
Multi-party HD video conferencing
Make video a more natural part of everyday business and collaboration, with 1080p resolution, and up to 6 people shown live simultaneously.
Focus on the things you’re doing together, even when you’re far apart, with integrated real-time co-authoring, desktop sharing, application sharing, and PowerPoint presentations.
Skype Meeting Broadcast
Skype Meeting Broadcast extends the reach of Skype Meetings to up to 10,000 attendees for webinars, all-hands meetings, and other one-to-many presentations. Scheduling options allow you to limit attendance to people in your organization or open it to everyone on the Internet.
Integrated Producer Controls
Present in Skype for Business, and manage the entire experience, using one touch to choose when attendees see video, content, or both. No need to learn a separate tool.
Streaming via Azure
Join the broadcast using a browser on nearly any device, and watch in real-time or after the fact with high performance content delivery provided by Microsoft Azure. Pause, rewind, and fast forward with a touch.
Customize the experience
Give your broadcast audience a voice, with real-time sentiment and polling provided by Bing Pulse. Enable audience conversations with Yammer. Add a unique URL to the broadcast to make it easy for your audience to take the next step.
PSTN conferencing from Microsoft
PSTN conferencing from Microsoft allows anyone to join your Skype Meetings using only a telephone. Useful for joining anytime a phone is more convenient than a tablet or PC, or anyplace without Internet access.
Local dial-in numbers
Easily join using the dial-in number automatically included in every Skype Meeting invite, and choose a local dial-in number in many countries around the world to reduce calling charges.
Add a person to a Skype Meeting in real-time simply by typing their phone number. Skype for Business dials them for you.
