Videoconferencing

Overview

The UT System Video Network serves the fifteen UT System peer institutions with interactive videoconferencing capabilities. Both point-to-point (for two parties at two different sites) and multipoint (for multiple parties at multiple sites) videoconferences are available. Departments, faculty, and staff can host or participate in videoconferences for distance education, meetings, presentations, lectures, research, or supplemental educational, informational or administrative programming. Some departments allow students to schedule videoconferences for research, educational, or career opportunities.

Features

  • Videoconferencing facilities are available across campus.
  • Schedule videoconferences among U.T. component campuses and to sites across Texas, the U.S., and the world.
  • Students can schedule videoconferences for research, educational, or career opportunities.
  • Instead of traveling to a meeting, lecture, or presentation, you can attend by videoconference. You'll save between 0.6 and 1 pound of carbon emissions for each mile you would have traveled.

Departments that own the videoconferencing rooms may charge a facility fee. Outbound, dial-out ISDN connections are $50 plus line charges (there are no charges for a dial-in ISDN connection).
