The UT Video Conferencing System combines hardware and software to support video conferencing between endpoints, desktops, and mobile devices. This client-server architecture incorporates a multipoint call unit (MCU) that supports real-time High Definition conferencing between various on and off campus networks and a wide selection of portable devices.
One of the benefits of videoconferencing is the ability for both parties see and hear each other further enhancing overall communication effectiveness. This technology gives the participants the feeling that they are meeting face to face, regardless of where they may be physically located. Video conferencing also saves time by allowing meeting participants to eliminate unnecessary travel. Use of this service is currently targeted for use by University Faculty and Staff and may be expanded upon at a later date.
Meetings can be conducted in the following ways:
- An Audio Bridge for multiparty telephone conferences
- A Point-to-Point conference linking two meeting rooms
- A Virtual Meeting Room linking users via desktops and mobile devices
- A Multi-Point conference linking multiple sites end-points
- Other combinations of the above are also supported
The University of Toledo video conferencing system operates on an internationally agreed upon standard, H.323. This system can interface with other systems based on these standards.
Currently there are approximately two dozen locations on the UT Campus that are equipped with videoconferencing endpoints. In order to view which locations or conference rooms are equipped to perform this function please install the plugin listed above. Once that is completed you can browse which resource locations can be scheduled.
The setup information for Desktop and Mobile clients can be found here. Please follow the instructions carefully and install the client only portion, not the Outlook plug-in.
For more information please see our working policy document or contact the Information Technology Department at 419.530.2400.
