Video Conferencing

Video conferencing services are offered at AMIL 217, CRSC 256, FLRS 308, FLRS 311 and GBTC 411. The rooms have fully equipped, high-definition video conferencing facilities consisting of:

  • Multiple plasma screens,
  • Video conferencing control units, 
  • High-definition projectors,
  • Microphones,
  • Sympodium and
  • DVD or Blu Ray player.

The video conferencing services are offered through collaboration with the Maryland Research and Education Network (MDREN) allowing the college both in-network and out-of-network video conferencing capabilities. We constructed these rooms in collaboration with all Maryland community colleges to ensure standardization and allow us to provide video to most community colleges. The video conferencing infrastructure in place allows for recording and playback of video conferences.

Newly installed infrastructure now affords the college the ability to have a video conference in any room with a data drop and the appropriate mobile video conferencing equipment.
