Joining a H.323 Room System to a non-UI Hosted Zoom meeting

Overview:

This article provides instructions for connecting a Video Conferencing room system to a third-party hosted Zoom meeting using the University of Idaho's Zoom licensing.

Zoom is the preferred video conferencing solution. It allows users to make video chat, and voice calls from computers, tablets, H.323/SIP Video Conferencing systems and mobile devices. Zoom is available for computers running Microsoft Windows, MacOS, or Linux distributions—as well as Android and iOS mobile devices.

Occasionally, H.323 Video Conferencing rooms are used for Zoom meetings that are not hosted by the University of Idaho's Zoom account. When this occurs, you will likely see a connection error when attempting to connect the Video Conferencing System to the Zoom Meeting. This is because the third-party's Zoom license does not include Cloud Room Connector licensing.

Fortunately, Zoom allows users to use the University of Idaho's Cloud Room Connector licensing to connect to another company's meeting
