Through the use of Polycom VSX 5000 videoconferencing equipment, the library allows Health Sciences Campus faculty, staff and students to come together virtually with individuals in other locations for meetings, collaboration, lectures and training. A videoconference can connect you with colleagues on the University Park Campus, in other states, and throughout the world. Powerpoint presentations may be integrated into videoconferences.
Videoconferencing may be point-to-point between two locations or may include multiple points with participants in various locations. Each videoconference site requires its own equipment. The library supports IP and ISDN protocols.
Videoconference fees consist of a $50 equipment and set-up charge; additional charges may be incurred dependent upon requirements of the session.
Reservations are required. Contact Technology Support Center at (323) 442-1968 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
