ITServices offers both a 30-seat videoconferencing classroom (Room B113) and a 9-seat videoconferencing boardroom (Room D120) in Mackintosh-Corry Hall. The classroom easily facilitates a guest lecturer from another city who can enjoy full two-way video and audio communication; it also enables a Queen’s class to join another class taking place in a similarly equipped facility anywhere in the world. These facilities can also be used for job interviews, meetings, and to see and talk to colleagues, family or friends.
- Queen’s faculty, students and staff.
- Both facilities are equipped with a Polycom VSX 8400 dual display videoconferencing system which allows connectivity by either ISDN lines or IP. The use of ISDN lines involves long distance charges; however, there are no line charges for IP connections. It is also capable of connecting to those desktop VC systems which use the h.323 standard.
- An ITServices technician is required to operate both facilities, so users need not have any specialized knowledge of the equipment. Please refer to our page on Service Fees for details.
