NMU Videoconferencing


Rooms: Audio Visual Services supports four distance learning rooms. These facilities allow participants at either end of the connection (local or distant site) to view each other, documents, a computer desktop image, or to watch a video. Sessions can also be recorded onto DVD, DV tape, or Mediasite Live.

Mobile: Videoconferencing carts for on-site presentation are available. A fully interactive video conference may emanate from just about any point on campus, to include a classroom, lab, or location with Ethernet access.

Desktop Conferencing: By using h.323 specific software, such as Polycom telepresence (m100), Polycom RealPresence Mobile or Desktop, or Cisco's Jabber, desktop endpoints can join a bridged conference.  A single video call using either Skype or ooVoo can be added to the multi-point conference as well.

Bridge: Our MCU (Multi-point Control Unit) or Bridge accommodates both HD and SD endpoints while preserving video resolution, speed, and frame rate of each site. The continuous presence video allows for multiple viewing options with FAR-Site-Control by the end user. Dial In or Out with full tech support.
