Videoconferencing Solutions from Media Services

Whether you'd like to improve your existing videoconferencing experience or are planning on using videoconferencing for a new initiative, you've come to the right place!

In the past year, Media Services has enhanced our existing videoconferencing rooms and added more portable, high quality solutions. In addition, we've implemented easy to use videoconferencing software and a videoconferencing bridge that allows up to 40 participants in a single call! Moreover, we have configured and enhanced our network to increase reliability and quality.

Examples of how you can use videoconferencing

Here are some ways in which we've helped our community use videoconferencing:

  • Bring a guest speaker into your classroom.
  • Collaborate with courses at other institutions.
  • Collaborate with colleagues regardless of where they are.
  • Be a guest speaker elsewhere.
  • Provide services to faculty, staff and students without geographical boundaries. For example, you can provide remote training sessions at Monterey, DC and beyond.
  • Work with with students, faculty and staff abroad, at Monterey, in DC, Breadloaf or in offices across town.
