There is an H.323 HD video conferencing system in the Bateson Room (R206)
To use it contact Ian, as you'll need some training. The address is aea-vc.gen.cam.ac.uk.
It's designed to talk to other hardware H.323 installations, but there is software available that can allow one to connect from a general purpose device. This is often not quite as easy to use, but a lot cheaper!
- Windows/Linux: Ekiga
Quite up to date
- Mac: XMeeting
Unfortunately unmaintained since 2007. It doesn't always work.
- Android: Polycom RealPresence Mobile
Making it work:
- Accept licence agreement
- Skip registration
- Do not log in
Probably the same as the android version

The reception screen can be edited by the front office staff. It can display the following information:

- Presenter's name
- Presenter's Institution or research group
- A starting date & time
- An ending date & time
- A map to the room (one of: Bateson, Biffen, Bioinformatics, Library, Tea room or Part2 room)
- A logo, which will be scaled to 450x390 pixels
In the future I hope to add the ability to present 1920x1080 slides provided as JPG or PNG files.
