Hardware videoconferencing

WHAT IS IT?

Hardware based videoconferencing systems are normally found in a videoconferencing suite or facility.  They use internationally adopted audio and video protocols which are delivered via specific hardware known as a 'codecs' (coder/decoder) over dedicated, therefore reliable, connections.


WHEN TO USE IT?

Hardware videoconferencing generally offers a reliable and high quality audio and video experience therefore is highly recommended if you need to connect with multiple sites and/or there is a business critical element to your meeting. 

We currently provide and support two videoconferencing suites which can connect to multiple hardware or desktop videoconferencing systems across various platforms. 

Please note that we are unable to connect Skype calls to our videoconferencing systems. 

If you must use Skype then it is installed and available for use in meeting rooms within Kings Gate and ground floor Devonshire Building however it is on a self-operational basis.
