TrueConf Kiosk 2.0: Control your app with the help of external console commands 1
We can’t wait to introduce TrueConf Kiosk 2.0, a new version of our software solution that helps integrate video conferencing capabilities into ATMs, interactive or self-service kiosks, video contact centers and other smart city solutions.

Now you can control TrueConf Kiosk with the help of external console commands and enjoy a wider range of supported video formats for promotional videos. Additionally, we’ve added more options for placing your self-view in the video layout during the meetings.

TrueConf Kiosk 2.0 is already available for download on our website. Don’t forget to update!

Control the application using external commands

You can control TrueConf Kiosk with the help of hard keys or interactive touch screen kiosks thanks to the support of console commands from third-party devices or applications. For example, you can set a custom gesture on a touch screen kiosk to start or end a video call.

TrueConf Kiosk now supports the following console commands:

  • config opens TrueConf Kiosk settings menu. If the app hasn’t been launched, this command launches it and opens the settings window.
  • call starts a call with parameters pre-configured in the Call section. If the app hasn’t been launched, this command automatically launches TrueConf Kiosk and makes a call.
  • hangup ends an ongoing video call or conference.
  • terminate shuts down TrueConf Kiosk app.
NOTE: call and hangup functions can also be bound to sensors of your information kiosks. For instance, you may set your TrueConf Kiosk to automatically start a video call when a user approaches the kiosk and end it when the user leaves.
With this new feature it has become easier to bring video conferencing capabilities to third-party solutions and automate the operation of TrueConf Kiosk 2.0 running in remote customer service systems, video banking solutions and other areas.
