Video Conferencing & AV Integrations

The Video Conferencing & AV Integrations Department is available to assist NSU faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to provide a media enriched environment. Our technical services staff is trained to assist faculty and staff in the technical aspects of a video conferencing event. Our goal is to provide a smooth and reliable experience.

Our commitment to NSU is to:

  • Support and compliment teaching, learning, and research regardless of geographic location.
  • Maintain a leadership role in instructional technology by providing quality services that facilitate, enhance and support the goals and objectives of a diverse university community.
  • Provide and support a strong student-centered administrative system.

Video Conferencing uses telecommunications of audio and video to bring people at different sites together for a meeting or a class. This can be as simple as a conversation between two people in private offices (point-to-point) or involve several sites (multipoint) with more than one person in large rooms at different sites.

Besides the audio and visual transmission of people, video conferencing can be used to share documents, computer-displayed information, and whiteboards.

Instructors have tools available such as document camera, computer, DVD, Blu-ray, which could be used to enhance the learning experience.

With most systems you can display:

  • Papers using the electronic document camera
  • Show information direct from your personal computer
  • Play a pre-recorded video
  • Record your own presentation

Benefits of Video Conferencing:

  • Simultaneous Interaction.
  • Connect different sites at the same time.
  • The visual connection and interaction among participants enhances understanding and helps participants feel connected to each other.
  • Cut costs for business travel.
