Additional Information

When preparing for a video conference using our facilities, please obtain the following information from the other party:

  • IP number (or ISDN number*) of the video conference unit at the location(s)
  • The model of the video conference unit at the location(s)
  • The name, phone and email of a technical contact at the other location(s)
  • A phone number in the remote video conference location(s) so we can contact the other side
