Bring the Video Unit back to Life and save money!

Think about it all those video units that everyone struggled to Join now they can be used in anger.

Here's how to rejuvenate them and cut costs in 3 easy steps:

1. Buy a Virtual Meeting Room with Auto dial out instead of group licenses or Skype Licenses! 

2. Set the Virtual Room up to auto dial the Video unit in whatever meeting room you want to enable 

- This takes 5 minutes to set up

- The Virtual Room has the Video Units SIP address in its auto dial out settings (cisco@close.global)

- Whenever you want to invite someone to the meeting send them the 1 click to Join link. (Close Dashboard)

Each Virtual Meeting Room has its unique URL.
