HD Video Conferencing

High Definition Video Conferencing [HEAnet Project]

In October, many of you responded to our invitation for applications for the  allocation of new high-definition videoconferencing equipment.

In October 2008, after an open procurement process, HEAnet contracted for the supply and support of new high-definition videoconferencing equipment - Polycom HDX 7002 XL units. 

As part of this process, new HD videoconference units have been allocated to the following HEAnet client institutions:

Some technical details of the unit are below:

  • Polycom HDX 7002 XL with data sharing
  • 52’’ LCD Screen

As well as enhancing VC facilities in HEAnet and its institutions, the aim of the project has been to raise the awareness of the many benefits of videoconferencing
in teaching and research and that this will stimulate further uptake of this quality service within - and indeed beyond - HEAnet.

programme of service enhancement.
