Videoconferencing (VC) allows for real-time video and audio communication between participants in two or more locations. Participants can share their computer’s screen and, depending on the room, use other presentation devices such as document cameras or DVD players. VC can be used for instruction, connecting with guest speakers and experts, project collaboration, administrative meetings, or community-building activities.

Cisco Telepresence is the VC technology used in all Faculty of Medicine (FoM) managed VC rooms. This technology and the accompanying built-in equipment, such as speakers, projectors and microphones, allow us to offer a natural and lifelike videoconference service, which increases its effectiveness.

For information about using a personal computer to participate in VC, please see the Desktop Videoconferencing service.
