Video Conferencing (Meetings and Special Events)

Do you want to make your meeting virtual? Here are your options:

Polycom Only (high-definition video conferencing, must have the Polycom hardware, only two rooms can connect at a time):

  1. Determine the IP address of the remote location and contact information of the technical support person at the remote location

  2. The procedure of setting up and using Polycom varies from room to room. If interested in using Polycom, contact Denis Logan (denis.logan@utoledo.edu) for individual setup


SCOPIA (clients do not need hardware to view presentation, up to four people can connect at once with interaction, multiple people can view without interaction, not high-definition):

  1. Visit http://vconf.utoledo.edu

  2. Click the blue link under “participate now” button to install the SCOPIA client plugin

  3. Go back to http://vconf.utoledo.edu

  4. Type in any name

  5. To create a virtual meeting id, type in (6XXXXXXXXXX) where XXXXXXXXXX is your 10-digit telephone number

  6. Share the virtual meeting id with your participants so that they know what number to type in to join the meeting

  7. Once you login to your meeting, it will ask whether or not you want to setup a password. If you choose to do so, make sure to also share the password with participants

 

Polycom and Scopia Together (have high-definition video of the presenter and other people can view presentation with or without hardware):

  1. Determine the IP address of the remote location and contact information of the technical support person at the remote location

  2. The procedure of bridging Polycom and Scopia together caries from room to room. If interested in using both, contact Denis Logan (denis.logan@utoledo.edu) for individual setup.
