Support for joining RingCentral Video meetings from a SIP client

Your company may use special meeting rooms equipment for conferencing. When your RingCentral account has a Room connector license, it will generate SIP information in the RingCentral Video meeting invitation. This allows meeting invitees to join your RingCentral Video meeting from a non-RingCentral SIP-based meeting room without needing any RingCentral client software.
