  1. Conference call

    A conference call is a telephone call in which someone talks to several people at the same time. The conference call may be designed to allow the called party to participate during the call or set up so that the called party merely listens into the call and cannot speak. It is sometimes called ATC (audio teleconference). Conference calls can be designed so that the calling party calls the other participants and adds them to the call; however, participants are usually able to call into the conference call themselves by dialing a telephone number that connects to a "conference bridge," which is a specialized type of equipment that links telephone lines. Companies commonly use a specialized service provider who maintains the conference bridge, or who provides the phone numbers and PIN codes that participants dial to access the meeting or conference call. These service providers can often dial-out to participants, connecting them to call and introducing them to the parties who are on-the-line. The operators can also take additional information such as question and answer details and also enable and disable advanced conferencing features such as muting lines, muting participants and enabling a recording feature. An operator can often be summoned to conference call hosted by a service provider using a combination of keys on a users' (sometimes only the moderator) telephone keypad. The most common recall function is *0. (asterisk and the zero/operator key) The more limited three-way calling is available (usually at an extra charge) on home or office phone lines. For a three-way call, the first called party is dialed. Then the hook flash button (or recall button) is pressed and the other called party's phone number is dialed. While it is ringing, flash/recall is pressed again to connect the three people together. This option allows callers to add a second outgoing call to an already connected call.

Examples of conference call in a Sentence

  1. Simone Merlini:

    You can imagine my face in the conference call when their ask changed.

  2. Frank Reich:

    ... but it will be very gradual and deliberate. And of course were taking steps to make sure were in compliance with state and local regulations, and NFL and CDC guidelines. That means primarily employees that must be in the office to do their jobs : people who need to access files that are only at the office ; maintenance workers ; trainers ; and technology workers. Those people will have their temperature taken when entering the building and must wear personal protective equipment. The Colts have set up one-way hallways with arrows on the carpet pointing to the proper direction, and there will be limits on how many people can be in rooms at the same time. Coach Frank Reich was realistic about a full return to the training complex. The guys who have been hurt, who have been coming into the building, keep coming in and rehabbing and doing their thing, other than that, as soon as we can get more players in the building we want that to make up for a little bit of lost time. The sooner we can get together and get out there working, the better it will be. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took part in an owners conference call from the teams practice facility, The Star. About two dozen staffers were present at the complex. The Steelers are doing a soft reopening Tuesday mainly for medical personnel and rehabbing players. They expect to ramp up use of their facility next week under league guidelines. As the Cardinals reopen, only essential staffers will be involved, far fewer than the 75 allowed at the facility. The Super Bowl champion Chiefs also opted for a soft opening, as did the Falcons, with only about 15 people at their complex on Tuesday. Those numbers will increase over the next week.

  3. Sebastian Coe:

    We will get the change we want and only then will Russian athletes return to international competition, this is not about politics, this is about the protection of clean athletes. I cannot overstate the feeling around the conference call this evening about sending the strongest possible message that we can.

  4. Eric Casaburi:

    For example, you could exercise on a treadmill, while taking a conference call (something that I do frequently), yes, you will be winded, but I assure you it won't affect your thinking and communication skills. In fact, there are studies that show the brain neurons fire off at a higher rate while active!

  5. David Whelan:

    It is one thing to talk about caring and The Whelans is another to act. This conference call with families was an action that showed that State Department is listening. It was good to hear Secretary Blinken discuss the need to use relationships -- with other David Whelan agencies and foreign nations -- and tools -- legislatively -- enacted options like the Levinson Act for hostage support and for sanctions -- to find ways to gain our family members' freedom. I will be looking forward to seeing those words become actions to try to bring American hostages home.
