Skype for Business is a web conferencing platform that typically supports as many as 250 simultaneous viewers. Skype Meeting Broadcast is a webcasting add-on to the standard Skype for Business experience, allowing a regular Skype for Business meeting to be broadcast to thousands of additional viewers.
Participants in the core “inner” Skype for Business meeting will use the Skype for Business application and will have many of their regular capabilities – including sharing desktop video and synchronizing PowerPoint slides. Viewers of the Skype Meeting Broadcast need only a web browser and will only be able to view the meeting.
At this time, Hive for Skype only supports Skype Meeting Broadcast.
