Today we will answer one of the frequently asked questions we get from our clients – what is the difference between TrueConf Server software and TrueConf Online cloud solution, as well as tell you about what is the purpose of each product.

Personal Communication or Corporate Use?

TrueConf Server is a software video conferencing server created for the construction of an independent system for video conferencing in private enterprise networks. It is secured and does not depend on an Internet connection. Users connect to the server using TrueConf client applications.

TrueConf Server is installed in enterprise’s infrastructure and is controlled by its system administrator who manages the system users, groups and their rights, and scheduling events. TrueConf Server can also be integrated with various communications equipment by means of a dedicated web interface.

TrueConf Server Web Manager

TrueConf Online works only over the Internet and does not require its own server – we have already set up everything for you, so is perfect for small businesses and remote employees. To make a video call or to create a group video conference, simply download and install the client application and register (get TrueConf ID).

TrueConf Online has less features than TrueConf Server dedicated systems.
