4K: The new quality standard for your video meetings

TrueConf provides award-winning 4K video meeting experience — four times the details of Full HD — for free, with no added costs and complex setups.

Zoom currently offers HD resolution only to Pro accounts, and only for point-to-point video calls. Full HD quality is available on request for special use cases.

Native interoperability with conference room systems

TrueConf users can extend a consistent enterprise experience across their conference room systems thanks to native integration with third-party video conferencing endpoints and MCUs via SIP or H.323. With Zoom you can also call or invite SIP/H.323 endpoints to video meetings; however, this option is available only upon purchasing H.323/SIP Room Connector which requires a dedicated PC or virtual machine for each connector in a hybrid deployment scenario. In contrast, you can gather up to 100 endpoints in a group video conference with TrueConf Server and just a regular CPU.

Different deployment scenarios

Different deployment scenarios

Despite Zoom’s a mature video conferencing platform, it largely depends on an Internet connection and third-party security measures, creating vulnerabilities for enterprises adopting the technology. On the contrary, TrueConf offers secure and smart video collaboration platform that operates totally offline in your LAN/VPN. With TrueConf, even external users are free to take full advantage of your on-prem video collaboration platform, while all communications stay entirely under your control.
