A fully-equipped video conferencing room is available on campus. This room can be reserved for distance learning classes, meetings or other events requiring interactive video sessions. In addition to the video network, the room also offers a VCR, DVD player, computer, and document camera. Contact the OTS Call Center to reserve this room.
Any campus location with a network jack can become your video conference room, using the portable video conference system. This delivers the same interactive video experience as the setup in Langsdale, only it provides the flexibility of bringing the video conference to your preferred campus location.
Using a connection to the University System of Maryland’s Interactive Video Network (IVN) you can participate in a video conference with any of the other USM schools. IVN sessions may be used for meetings or classes.
Video conferencing services are free for academic and administrative events when the connection is over IP or IVN. ISDN connections incur additional fees which can be very expensive; you or your department are responsible for ISDN connection fees.
Please contact us at least 2 business days prior to your video conferencing event. For all rooms other than Langsdale Library 400, schedule the room as you normally would through Auxiliary Enterprises, then contact us to discuss the details of the video conference. Priority is given to classes/lectures when scheduling video conferences.
