Videoconferencing

Overview

Videoconferencing technology offers exciting possibilities for the university community. When properly executed, it can enhance collaboration, facilitate teambuilding and personalize relationships with remote individuals and groups. Because of the potential that videoconferencing offers for enhancing the educational experience, there is a great deal of interest in what capabilities are currently available.

Three new room based systems have been deployed at the Mid-town campus in the following locations:

  • Old Main – Rm 304
  • Science Building – Rm 125
  • Science Building - Rm 135

Information Technology & Innovation can support large format videoconferencing when either IP or ISDN connectivity can be established between participants. The requestor is responsible for verifying that the appropriate connectivity is available prior to scheduling a videoconference. UC will be happy to answer any questions or provide any assistance necessary to facilitate a videoconference.  Large format IP video conferences are supported on a best effort basis with the understanding that the connection is prone to degradation/interruption based on Internet network traffic and other factors beyond the our control.

 Information Technology & Innovation continues to stay abreast of technical developments and will investigate any new technology that might make IP technology more effective for this application.

Video Technology

Videoconferencing applications and hardware generally target three specific audiences; Click on the attached section for a description of elements involved in provisioning each system type.

1. DESKTOP SYSTEMS

2. PORTABLE SYSTEMS

3. ROOM SYSTEMS

Network Technology

At present, two different network technologies are used to provide connectivity for video conferencing. The following overview highlights the strengths and weaknesses of both technologies as a basis for understanding UC policy.

1. ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network)

2. TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) aka IP
