Video communication

T.Flex supports the following types of video communication:

  • One-to-one:
    • Video call
    • PTV (push to video) call
  • Many-to-many:
    • Multi PTV call
PTT hold timeout specifics:

Administrative configuration may define a PTT hold timeout for your user account, where you are allowed to hold the floor for no longer than a specified time and PTT is automatically released for you when the time limit is hit. This feature works in some situations but not in others – it is applicable where there is a PTT queue (floor control).
In particular, the timeout works for PTV calls but not for video calls.

During video-enabled calls, toggle buttons for the following are available:

  • Flashlight
  • Front or rear camera
  • Other speaker's voice
  • Your own microphone
  • Your own video feed

One-to-one video communication

Video call

Users can exchange video calls in the TASSTA system. During a video call, each of the participants can change the speaker of the output sound, turn on and off the microphone and video camera, and switch between the front and rear camera view.

Note:

Make sure that you have a stable Internet connection when placing or receiving video calls. The quality of a video call depends on the contact with the weakest connection.

To make a video call

  1. Go to the user list by selecting it in the main menu.
  2. Tap the user you need and then tap the video call icon. The available action icons are above the user list interface when a user is selected.
  3. Wait for the other user to accept your call.
Receiving a video call:

When someone video calls you, you see an INCOMING VIDEO CALL screen, where you can accept or decline the call.

PTV call

This is a video call that does not require confirmation from the receiving party. A PTV call is declined if the receiving party is already in a call.

To make a PTV call

  1. Go to the user list by selecting it in the main menu.
  2. Tap the user you need and then tap the PTV call icon. The available action icons are above the user list interface when a user is selected.
  3. Use the PTT button to take your turn transmitting video and voice.

Many-to-many video communication

Multi PTV call

This is a PTV call with more than two participants.

To make a multi PTV call

  1. Go to the user list by selecting it in the navigation drawer.
  2. Tap the PTV call icon in the top bar and proceed to the user selection screen.
  3. Select the users you need and tap the PTV call icon again.
