Video Conference/Skype Locations and Information

A video conference allows two or more individuals to communicate in real time using the internet to transfer digital audio, video, and content. You may require a video conference to participate remotely in a class as a guest speaker, to bring a guest speaker into the classroom, or for meeting collaboration. Polycom and LifeSize are common names for business class video conference systems while Skype is a social interface that allows users to share voice and video on the internet. Desktop sharing is a feature of IP based video conference systems that allows a user to deliver content, a PowerPoint presentation for example, during the video conference.

You must schedule an appointment with a technician prior to the video conference to test endpoint connectivity, be present during the test, and arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the video conference. Please contact telecom@richmond.edu to request an appointment and to provide us with important contact information with the endpoint.
