Academic Technology proudly hosts a Polycom® RMX 2000 video bridge to accomodate your videoconferencing needs. The video bridge provides intuitive, high-quality multisite/multipoint videoconferencing to end users needing to connect to multiple sites simultaneously.
Most "multisite" or "multipoint" videoconferences are conducted in virtual meeting rooms on the bridge. Participants dial into the meeting room and the conference begins immediately.
As connecting to multiple endpoints can be cumbersome, AT & AMDS will assist can assist you in this endeavor. We will perform site testing prior to your event for free. To request site testing prior to your event, please fill out the Videoconference Support Request Form.
Please Note: Site testing is arranged by you. Please do not submit the form until you have arranged the test call(s) with the remote site(s) technical contact. Connection testing 1‐2 weeks prior to the event is highly encouraged as troubleshooting remote location issues may span multiple days due to complicated network infrastructures at remote locations and/or the need to alter a room to fit your specific needs. Without advanced testing your event may very well have a delayed start or have sites unable to participate due to the time it takes to seek issue resolution.
If you would like to request a personal meeting room for your or your organization, or simply want more information about video bridging services in general, contact the Bridge Administrators, Mark Crowl or Richard McMahon. Contact phone numbers can be found here.
