Used when a group of people on campus are in a meeting room together wanting to make a call that they can all hear and talk.
Speakerphones need an analog line to work. Most conference rooms and classrooms have analog lines. They do NOT work in offices unless an office has had a dedicated jack installed for speakerphone use.
Audio Conference Bridge
Used when 3 or more people (or parties, if a speakerphone is being used) are wanting to all call into 1 phone call. All participants call 1 number and are all brought together by entering their assigned conference number.
A 48-hour notice is needed for scheduling the conference.
Compressed Video Conference
Used for 2 or 3 Bethel locations where Bethel video conferencing equipment can be set up.
A 1-week notice is needed for a 2-site video conference.
A 2-week notice is needed for more than 3-site set up. A video bridge from an outside source will be needed which will be charged back to the requesting department's budget.
For information about teaching with video online please contact Teaching and Learning Technology for options.
