How many people can participate in a video-conferencing call using Microsoft Lync?


By contrast, Skype supports up to 10 people using video-conferencing. Once that number is exceeded video-conferencing is disabled entirely, but then 25 people can participate in an audio-only conference. How does Microsoft Lync work?

@gabesumner no hard limit, 250 multi-party video. however, not "hollywood squares" style; it would be speaker highlighted style.

This also supports a discussion I was seeing in the Microsoft TechNet forums.
