Portable Videoconferencing

Media Services owns and operates two portable Video Teleconferencing units. One unit is the Tandberg 880 used for standard definition, and the other is the LifeSize Room used for high-definition. Both units are Internet-based and must either be connected to other sites via the Internet/network or use the room in Wallace hall as a "bridge" to connect via telephone line (ISDN).

These units are best utilized in an office, a small classroom or conference room with an active network connection. Depending on the room configuration, the entire setup can be brought into the room on a small cart outfitted with a computer monitor for the other site, or the unit can be integrated into an outfitted room's Media Services equipment. Rental are labor charges apply, and can differ depending on the host room's capabilities.
