Videoconferencing in meeting rooms
At IU, most H.323 compliant (videoconferencing) hardware and software are supported. Polycom and Cisco systems are the recommended stand-alone H.323 solutions.
For information on how to use the remote control for the Tandberg video system at Indiana University, consult IU's Tandberg Quick Start Guide (PDF).

Video- and audio-enabled meetings from your desktop
Desktop videoconferencing allows you to participate in video- and audio-enabled meetings from your computer.
To participate in an H.323 videoconference from your desktop computer, you will need:
- Desktop videoconferencing hardware and software installed on your computer
Note:If you have an IU Network ID and are running Windows or Mac OS X, UITS recommends using Skype for Business/Lync; see Using Skype for Business/Lync to connect to videoconference rooms.
- Audio capabilities (e.g., a sound card and speakers or headset)
- A reliable high-bandwidth network connection
- A standard USB webcam
For more, see At IU, how can I create or join a videoconference?
Video bridge and multipoint conferencing
UITS recommends using an ad hoc conference; see At IU, how can I create or join a videoconference?
Client- and web-based meeting software
At IU, Adobe Connect (formerly called the IU Breeze Meeting Service) offers a central web-based collaboration environment. Using Connect, people can access a virtual meeting room through the web and collaborate online on shared content without installing videoconferencing software. For more, see At IU, what is Adobe Connect?
