We are committed to working with your technology to connect for a Virtual Visit. Described below are the three technologies we use to connect NYSCI to your site. All methods require a test connection for troubleshooting prior to the program.
This method employs the use of videoconferencing technology hardware. The most common manufacturers of this type of hardware are Tandberg and Polycom. IP stands for "Internet Protocol" and means that the Internet is used to make the connection. We connect via an IP connection with a minimum connection speed of 384 kbps. We are enabled to both receive and dial out calls.
ISDN connections also use videoconferencing technology hardware, but employ ISDN phone lines for the connection. Although we do not have the lines ourselves we can arrange a bridge to make an ISDN connection with you. No line charges.
Don't have the videoconferencing hardware? We can still arrange a Virtual Visit. Through exciting new web technology, we can deliver our programs to your desktop or laptop computers or even a SmartBoard. All you need is a computer, webcam, microphone and an Internet connection. Contact us for more details and we can configure a setup that works with the technology you have!
