Videoconferencing

videoconferencing

We offer traditional videoconferencing services in conjunction with the University of Ottawa's Distance Education group. Our conference room is equipped with two 70" screens, camera and fully wired for sound. Due to the nature and technical requirements of videoconferences, we are only able to support videoconferencing in our primary conference room (Roger-Guindon 2029).

Support Considerations

We ask that you plan well in advance (2+ weeks) prior to the date of your videoconference. Our technical team will often need to coordinate with Distance Education as well as the IT or contact person for each remote videoconferencing site in order to insure proper setup and configuration.

Skype

Please note at this time we are unable to provide support for Skype conferences as our conference rooms are not equipped for this type of service.

Fees

All videoconferences will incur fees. The following is a breakdown of the fees to expect when organizing a videoconference. For each remote site (a remote site is considered one (1) location where your have participants attending):

  • $60 for the first hour
  • $30 for each additional hour
  • After-hours support fee (see below)

After-hours technical support

Due to the University of Ottawa's collective bargaining agreements, we cannot guarantee that technical support will be available for your videoconferences that occur outside normal business hours. We recommend you request early (4-6 weeks in advance) if you require after-hours support, as we will make every possible effort to accommodate you.

The fee for on-site technical support after hours is $40 per hour. This is above and beyond the fees listed above for connecting to remote videoconferencing sites. This fee is waived for Faculty of Medicine administration events. Please contact us for more information on fees.
