Multimedia, video, and web conferencing

Kansas State University offers a variety of services to help you with multimedia, video, and web conferencing. These are divided into self-service and full-service options and described below.

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 staff. 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.

Video represents a university record and will be managed in accordance with the PPM 3090: Retention of Records policy and the Records Retention Schedule
