CTS - Video Conferencing - Using a Specialist Device for High-End VTC Calls
Posted by , Last modified by Eric Sauvageau on 24 May 2017 10:38 AM

This technology enables participants to hear and see each other. It typically requires specialized hardware and/or software, so all participants must be in rooms equipped with that hardware.

Polycom (and other hardware-based services) leverage ISDN, phone line, or network-based connections between two participating locations: Locations can range from a room with a single participant to a large conference room with multiple people. Sound and video are controlled and sent from the hardware unit. Hardware can support multiple camera connections, allowing dynamic switching to occur during a meeting (zooming on a single person, focusing on different sections of a room, etc.). Overall, hardware reliability for this option is usually the strongest as connections are optimized for dedicated performance.

Standard-definition video conferencing is available in Highland Hall 039. This room is ideal if there is a larger group of participants on the campus who wish to participate, as the room seats 35. The room must be reserved with the campus reservationist, as only one session can be run at a time. Once the room is secured, you will need let ITS know that it will be used for video conferencing, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the USNH Video bridge. Using the equipment located in Highland Hall, we are able to connect up to 15 sites in a video conferencing session (provided the other sites are equipped with similar equipment).

ITS can also bring standard-definition video conferencing equipment into classrooms and meeting spaces on campus (pending availability). Contact the ITS Help Desk at 603-535-2903 for more information or to set-up a consultation.
