Video conferencing enables two or more sites to have a collaborative meeting face-to-face with participants at a distance. Cameras and microphones are used at each site to send the pictures and sound of participants to each other in real time. Most systems can also send and receive content materials such as PowerPoint slides, spreadsheets, and websites. The result is a meeting that can occur anywhere in the world without the expense of traveling.
Some examples of possible uses are full credit courses with off campus students or instructors, course guest speakers, research meetings, thesis defenses, and job interviews.
ATS offers full-service, room-based facilities with a personal technician to handle all technical details, self-service facilities that are easily operated through a push-button control panel and remote control, and a bridging service that will bring together up to 12 sites simultaneously. We also provide support for desktop conferencing programs such as Canvas Conferencing, Google Hangouts, Skype, and Zoom.
