Video Conferencing
Standards & Guidelines

Video conferencing facilitates communication and interaction between people in two or more locations across campus, or across the state, on the other side of the continent or around the globe! It's the next best thing to being there. Video conferencing uses audio and high definition-quality video technology to bring people at different sites together for meetings, discussions, academic sessions, or events. UTEP's Video Conferencing suites are available to faculty, staff, student organizations, and business and academic departments in a variety of locations on campus.

Options

Video Conferencing Suites with MCU (Multi-point Conference Units) are for group sessions where you wish to display the presence of multiple participants in your suite. Easy-to-use dedicated equipment with auto-answer allows MCU to offer a continuous presence between the participants from up to four sites (Video Conferencing Suite plus three remote sites).

Video Conferencing Suites with Lync can connect two locations using high-end wide angle cameras, so can display a group of people to the remote participants. Lync is also available for desktop-to-desktop connectivity for one-on-one video conferencing sessions as long as both connecting computers have a web cam and microphone.Visit Lync for more details.

Video Conferencing Suites with Skype can connect two locations using the video camera and microphone built into the suite's computer or user's laptop. These built-in web cams usually do not offer wide angle capability so cannot display participants other than the main speaker to the remote participant.
