Policy Statement

This policy provides guidelines for the appropriate application and use of videoconferencing resources.


Video conferencing refers to technology that enables people to communicate by real-time audio and video from disparate geographic locations. It includes systems that project an image to many locations (one-way video), or those that enable participants at different locations to interact with each other (multipoint conferencing). In addition to the transmission of live camera-generated images, video conferencing includes tools that make it possible to communicate a wide variety of information formats from many sources, such as documents and images.
