  • Publication number: 20190116338
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for managing continuous group presence using video conferencing with, for example, connecting, by a processor, a first video conferencing endpoint to a video conference session having at least one secondary video conferencing endpoint, receiving a trigger condition at the first video conference endpoint, determining if the trigger condition exceeds a predetermined threshold, and transmitting through the video conference session, a trigger notification, wherein the trigger notification enables an audio connection from the first conferencing endpoint to at least one secondary video conferencing endpoint.

  • Publication number: 20190041654
    Abstract: An optical arrangement for producing white laser light from a plurality of colored light sources has a plurality of light emitters, a plurality of dichroic mirrors, a convergence lens, and a collimator lens. The light emitters are laser beam emitters of different colors, which are configured together with the plurality of dichroic mirrors and a plurality of polarizing filters to produce a white light output beam through combination of the directional light beams of the plurality of light emitters. The light emitters' laser beams are combined through the use of the dichroic mirrors to produce a polychromatic light beam, which can be modified through polarizing filters to produce a white light beam.

  • Patent number: 9369673
    Abstract: Described herein are methods and systems for joining a video conference endpoint to a video conference. A user may use a mobile device to take a picture of a Quick Response (QR) code or may place the mobile device in close proximity to a Near Field Communication (NFC) tag. Such QR code or NFC tag may be associated with a video conference endpoint. The user may then transmit the information encoded by the QR code or NFC tag, along with a meeting identifier, to a server. The server, in turn, may instruct a video conference endpoint identified by the QR code or NFC tag to join a video conference identified by the meeting identifier.
