Conferencing technologies are viable options for holding meetings or to host guest speakers remotely. No need to coordinate flights, housing, and other schedules. Simply sit in front of a screen and camera (alone or with a class or other group) for a virtual meeting.
Dedicated Video Conferencing
The Maxwell School has enjoyed the benefits of dedicated video conferences for many years. Such uses include job interviews, dissertation defenses, presenting to a distant class, and more. This equipment is common at universities and large corporations worldwide. It is well-adapted for group environments. In the Global Collaboratory we can switch between 5 cameras and 3 computers for the far side to view. ICT can handle IP (H.232) and ISDN (H.230) connections.Contact Us / More Info
Web Conferencing (Skype / Adobe Connect)
Desktop computer systems have a history of adapting expensive technology to everyday uses. Video conferencing is no different. ICT provides managed Skype software installs for assigned computers and a conference cart for small group situations.Contact Us / More Info
Sometimes, a regular telephone call is all that is needed. For 1-2 people you can use your office speakerphone. When you have a larger group ICT can provide a conference phone that can accommodate about 20 people. The Global Collaboratory is designed to handle audio conferences for a full room. We can even wire the Public Events Room for large telephone conferences.
