Organizing a videoconference

The Faculty also has a mobile videoconferencing system and a range of software solutions to meet teaching and research requirements. In addition, it has equipped a room specifically for videoconferences (CMT-2109). The equipment available makes it possible to manage videoconference sessions with up to 4 sites (including our own). Sessions are supported by Polycom equipment.


To organize a videoconference, each of the connected sites must be equipped with the appropriate system. Audiovisual communications services on the web such as Skype and Google Hangouts are not compatible, technologically speaking, with videoconference systems. It is therefore not possible to organize a videoconference where some participants use the videoconferencing system while others use Skype.
