# TrueConf Room introduction

# Connection structure

This section gives only a general description.

Check this section to learn how TrueConf Room can be connected to a video conferencing server.

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.

# Main screen

During a video conference participants' videos are displayed on a screen connected to the computer where TrueConf Room is installed.

When there are no ongoing conferences, the following elements are displayed on the main screen:

  • Video from the camera connected to TrueConf Room

  • List of upcoming meetings

  • Date and time

  • A QR code with a link to the control panel

  • Information about the current authorized user

  • Design elements

The TrueConf Room screen is then called the main screen. Read below to learn about how to set up the main screen.

# Control panel

The TrueConf Room control panel is a web interface that can be accessed from any device with a web browser. The web interface is powered by a local server run by TrueConf Room and does not require Internet connection. This part of TrueConf Room is called the control panel.

You can log in to the control panel via a link or a QR code displayed on the main screen.
