The definition of "video-conferencing" or VTC has changed significantly in recent years. What was previously the domain of complex systems with a myriad of specialized components and dedicated hardware must now provide connectivity and support for software and user devices (BYOD) in a wide variety of spaces. This session will focus on the changing world of video conferencing, collaborative spaces, and user-driven BYOD integration. We'll review the pros and cons of different VTC and BYOD system options and explore techniques for determining the right solution for your users and space.

This session is platform and manufacturer agnostic and will review technologies for group huddle spaces, small conference rooms, and large conference rooms/classrooms. We'll discuss common support issues and design considerations, and we will provide analysis of what types of systems tend to work well in various environments. In addition, we'll demonstrate how Oregon State University is successfully deploying customized small form factor PCs to supplement VTC codecs and serve as general conferencing hardware.
