Videoconferencing is a recent development that links meeting rooms and classrooms through digital audio-visual technology. Cameras, microphones, video monitors and state-of-the-art telecommunications technology provide a window to similarly equipped meeting rooms out of town. The Instructional Multimedia Center handles all video conference setups for the AVC campus. The following guidelines are intended to streamline the process of requesting video conference services, and help the IMC to provide a valuable service to the campus community.
- Requests must be made a minimum of two (2) weeks in advance to ensure availability of the room, equipment, connectivity and personnel.
- Room reservations, connectivity, equipment support and technical support is coordinated by the IMC staff.
IMC provides a single point of contact for individuals wanting to use videoconferencing. We can connect globally with sites in almost every country in the world. As a member of the CENIC dedicated system, we have the ability to host and/or connect to all campuses within the Cal State, UC, and California Community College systems, as well as any other system with ISDN384 bonded, 384 kbps capabilities.
Videoconferencing equipment is available for use in rooms BE 118 and BE 132. The description and capacity of rooms can be seen under Facility and Services.
