Videoconferencing

Schulich Video Conference Room

Uses:

Videoconferencing allows two or more individuals or groups at different locations to see and hear each other at the same time.  Computer presentations, if used, are also broadcast to all locations.

Examples of a live session include:
• PhD review/defense with adjudicator elsewhere.
• With a research colleague at another location.
• In a video workshop.
• Interview of potential candidates for study or employment.

Product: Lifesize Team 220
Requirements: A compatible facility at the other end of the video conference.  
Campus Location: Room L115, Law Library. Key available at Information Desk.
Room Capacity: Up to 10 particpants.
Layout: V-shaped conference table facing two side-by-side 55" flat screen monitors.  
Attire: To ensure that you can be seen clearly by those at the other end of the conference, we recommend that you wear darker colours. As well, busy clothing patterns or strips can cause image shimmer and a general degradation of the overall broadcast picture. For example, a plain tie is better than one with a pattern.
Reservations: Contact the Library IT Department at 902-494-2125
Pre-Event Testing: A 1/2 hour test session 2-3 days prior to the event is required to ensure system compatibility.
Fees:
  • For a university session there is no charge.  Requests for videoconferencing are granted according to the availability of staff resources.
  • For outside groups the hourly fee is $100 for setup, testing and the session.
  • A cancellation fee of $75 will be charged for confirmed appointments not cancelled within 48 hours of a meeting.
*Please Note

It is Law Library policy that food is not allowed in the conference room and all drinks must be in travel mugs.
