The University has Access Grid facilities located in the Hicks Building and HRI.
The Access Grid rooms have multiple cameras and multiple displays; this allows many different sites to be displayed to the participants, with a variety of different camera angles available. As Access Grid facilities are designed for collaborative teaching, they can accommodate more participants (20 – 50, depending on location) than traditional video conferencing facilities. All of the Access Grid facilities allow users to share their desktop to other sites; this can be very useful if presenting with PowerPoint or demonstrating software. Access Grid rooms are set up like a standard seminar room, with a lectern available for the speaker.
Access Grid spaces are suitable for the following conferences:
- Collaborative teaching
- One to one
- One to many
- Many to many
To book this facility please fill out the booking request form and a member of the videoconferencing team will be in touch shortly.
