 +====== Zoom ======
 +The Sterrewacht has a (large number of) licenses for Zoom. See [[zoom|separate page]] for details.

 +====Not Skype====
 +Note that Video Conferencing is not Skype calling. Although it is possible to setup a Skype Video Conferencing meeting, it requires a Skype Business contract to enable this functionality and does not connect to the VC units we have available. Skype uses its own proprietary communication protocols that do not match the standard VC protocols.
