We provide video streaming broadcasts to the desktop for both live and pre-recorded lectures, meetings and conferences. For do it yourself recorded meetings, we can store presentations as Video on Demand files which can be viewed any time. The video streams can be viewed from local or remote locations, such as off-site buildings or employee homes. The streaming service uses the Zoom streaming application. Presentations can be broadcast from the following locations:

  • Building 50 Auditorium
