# What is TrueConf Room
# What TrueConf Room is used for
TrueConf Room is an application for video conferencing in meeting rooms. This software-based solution provides all essential features of a room endpoint.
TrueConf Room is mainly designed for displaying conference participants on a large screen in a huddle or meeting room. This application enables users to create and run conferences from their PCs, tablets, or mobile devices by scanning a QR code or following a link.
The main idea behind TrueConf Room is to provide clean and intuitive user interface that does not interfere with the conference screen.
TrueConf Room can be used with Windows or Linux and needs to be connected either to TrueConf Online cloud-based video conferencing solution or TrueConf Server / TrueConf Server Free video collaboration platform.
TrueConf Room is available for free on our website.
# Connection structure
This section gives only a general description.

To run video conferences, TrueConf Room should be authorized in TrueConf Server or TrueConf Online with a user account.
TrueConf Room is a software solution and does not come with AV peripherals. A microphone and a camera have to be connected to the computer running TrueConf Room.
