Video Conferencing is a free service for staff that will allow you to connect to people all over the world for meetings, collaborations and lectures.
We have two dedicated Video Conference rooms available as well as the option to set up Video Conferences anywhere on campus.
We use a service called Vscene which allows users to connect with each other via many different ways. You can have up to 20 different people join via any combination of devices below:
- IP/SIP Based Video Conference systems
- Web Browser
- Vscene Mobile app
- Skype for Business
With Vscene you are able to share your screens, record sessions, share documents and use a virtual whiteboard for notes and ideas.
The Chancellors Room
The Chancellors Room in Firth Court can seat up 16 people and has a dedicated Video Conferencing Unit as well as a large screen to view your meeting. This room has a PC which can be shared with external participants to display presentations, videos and more.
This room will need to be booked via room bookings before requesting a conference.
LG20 in Kroto can seat up to 10 people and has the same video conferencing unit in it as the Chancellors room. This room does not have a PC in it, but you can plug in your laptop via VGA or HDMI.
This room can be booked by us.
Desktop Video Conference
We are able to set up desktop meetings via web browsers anywhere on campus. You will just need a computer, webcam and microphone, all of which are available to loan from us.
Once the meeting has begun all the users need to do is click on the web link which will be emailed to them prior and the desktop browser will automatically launch and join the meeting.
You will need to book a room in advance of this. Ideally it will have either a screen or projector in it to display your meeting.
We also have a range of webcams and microphones available for use with other video conference software like Skype and Zoom. Please contact us with details about your meeting and we will be able to advise on what equipment is best.
