Receiving a call
Anyone from your organization can call you using the directory, but people from outside the Pexip Service can call you too as long as they're using standards-based SIP/H.323 protocols. You just need to share your personal video address with them.
To find your personal video address, log in to the app and then go to in the top-left corner and select. Your personal video address is displayed under (it looks like an email address).
After registering your VTC system, you can receive calls from colleagues via the Pexip Service.
