Title
(DE) HERSTELLUNG EINER VIDEOKONFERENZ WÄHREND EINES TELEFONANRUFS
(EN) ESTABLISHING A VIDEO CONFERENCE DURING A PHONE CALL
(FR) ÉTABLISSEMENT D'UNE VISIOCONFÉRENCE PENDANT UN APPEL TÉLÉPHONIQUE
Abstract
(EN) Some embodiments provide a method for initiating a video conference using a first mobile device. The method presents, during an audio call through a wireless communication network with a second device, a selectable user-interface (UI) item on the first mobile device for switching from the audio call to the video conference. The method receives a selection of the selectable UI item. The method initiates the video conference without terminating the audio call. The method terminates the audio call before allowing the first and second devices to present audio and video data exchanged through the video conference.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte, dans certains modes de réalisation, à un procédé permettant d'établir une visioconférence à l'aide d'un premier dispositif mobile. Le procédé présente, pendant un appel audio à travers un réseau de communication sans fil avec un second dispositif, un élément sélectionnable d'interface utilisateur (UI) sur le premier dispositif mobile pour passer de l'appel audio à la visioconférence. Le procédé reçoit une sélection de l'élément sélectionnable d'interface UI. Le procédé établit la visioconférence sans mettre fin à l'appel audio. Le procédé met fin à l'appel audio avant de permettre aux premier et second dispositifs de présenter des données audio et vidéo échangées pendant la visioconférence.
