Zoom is a collaborative cloud-based video and web conferencing platform. Zoom offers virtual meeting rooms in which meeting participants can join a meeting easily, whether from a room system, desktop system or mobile device via app or web browser. Each virtual meeting room can have up to 100 participants at a time and invited participants do not have to have a Zoom account to join a meeting. Also, Zoom meetings can be bridged in with MCNC’s Telepresence Management Suite scheduled sessions for extra video system connectivity capabilities.

Zoom’s user management allows account owners to create users, each with their own virtual meeting room.
