The Videoconferencing Department serves the Barry community by providing real-time audio, data, and video communication between individuals at two or more locations virtually anywhere in the world for workplace and instructional purposes.
  • Point-to-Point videoconferencing allows users in a physical room, such as a conference room or classroom equipped with videoconferencing equipment, to present video and content to participants attending locally and remotely using similar room systems. In addition, DoIT also provides portable videoconferencing equipment which may be installed anywhere on Barry's network, such as an office, a department's conference room, or a classroom. These rooms may therefore be used for videoconferencing, as needed.
  • Desktop videoconferencing uses applications on your desktop/laptop that allow users to interact with each other over Barry's intranet, as well as over the internet. Using a PC/laptop, along with a web camera, microphone, and speakers, one is able to collaborate and share applications directly with others over the network, without leaving your desk. Some examples of desktop based applications used at Barry are Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Live Meeting, Adobe Connect and Skype.
  • Live Video Streaming allows Barry university faculty and staff at remote locations to view live main campus events via the Barry University streaming website. The live streaming videos are available both in high definition and low bandwidth versions. Videos are automatically posted when the event is finished in the on-demand section of the website so that they can be viewed at your convenience. The link to the streaming portal is located here.
  • Voice Bridge allows users to call into a local voice bridge phone number to host a conference call. Voice bridges also act as a backup to audio for desktop videoconferences. Voice bridge usage should be scheduled via the voice bridge form. Directions for using the voice bridge for Cisco phones is found here, and non-Cisco phones found here.
