|Become a Videoconference Hero|
If you need a venue for a videoconference, consider using OARnet's pilot telepresence system located at 1224 Kinnear Road, Columbus.
An advanced form of videoconferencing, telepresence creates the illusion that meeting participants are all in the same room by using high-definition technology and a sophisticated array of hardware and software.
Telepresence systems can be elaborate and expensive, requiring a dedicated room with specific furniture, paint and lighting. Other, more basic telepresence systems require only moderate room preparation.
OARnet, which received a grant from the Ohio Board of Regents to investigate telepresence applications, actively supports the videoconferencing community through leadership roles in international conferences, support services for the Internet2 Commons, and ongoing research.
H.323 Videoconferencing is offered through eTech Ohio. Click here for more information on accessing the Ohio Video Network.
