Equipment Purchases

Acquisition of web/video conferencing devices should be compatible with existing university web/video conferencing systems. Information on current university systems can be obtained from the Division of Communications and Marketing's Video and Engineering Services webpage and via consultation with Division of IT Client Services staff. Classroom A/V technology should be coordinated with IT Classroom Technology staff. Both can be contacted via the IT Service Desk.

Units that acquire web/video conferencing equipment or systems, including software, that are not compatible with the university systems will do so with the understanding that these will not be centrally supported. Equipment purchases must meet federal regulations, export control laws, and information security requirements.
