Video Conferencing is available at Temple University to facilitate meetings, classes, conferences, interviews, etc., with others at remote locations.
Video Conferencing facilities are available at all campuses throughout Temple University to facilitate meetings, classes, conferences, interviews, etc., with others at remote locations. Classroom Technology Support (CTS) provides consultations on the use of videoconferencing at the Main Campus. IT personnel are available on satellite campuses to provide consultations for using video conferencing on their respective campus.
Any current Temple University student, instructor or employee is eligible to use this service.
- Consultations are available with the Classroom Technology Support group during normal business hours, however, advanced questions may need to be referred to consultants with special expertise in video conferencing. Advanced consultations are available between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
- Computer Services does not support all video conferencing facilities. Some Schools, Colleges, and Departments have dedicated locations equipped with video conferencing capabilities. In most cases, Computer Services is aware of these sites and can direct you to the appropriate person.
- Computer Services does not schedule video conferencing facilities. Scheduling is arranged by several individuals and is based on location. Computer Services can direct you to the appropriate scheduler or act as a mediator between you and the scheduler.
- Computer Services does not provide cost estimates for video conferencing installations but can collaborate with you to obtain an estimate from Facilities Management.
- Video conferencing facilities are limited and setting up a video conference can be complex. Please be aware that your request may not be able to be fulfilled because a room is not available or there is not sufficient time to set up and test the equipment.
- To schedule a video conference between Temple University campuses each campus must be contacted to be sure that their space is available, wherever the presenter or meeting moderator will be would be considered the ‘host’ location and a technician from that campus would place the video conference call into the others. To connect to sites outside of the university you MUST contact the appropriate campus well in advance with a technical contact name, phone number, and the IP address of the video conferencing codec so that a test connection can be done prior to your event to ensure that there are no compatibility or network firewall issues with those locations. Those sites MUST be using a video conferencing codec, NOT WebEx, SKYPE, Face Time etc.
- Computer Services does not provide staff in the room during video conferencing events. Support for video conferencing events is provided the same way support is provided to events scheduled in smart classrooms. For additional information, refer to Classroom Technology Support.
