H.323 Videoconferencing: Service Coordinator Training


Sunday, 18 May 2003, 09:00 - 17:30
Venue: Hotel Opera - Maksimir

This full-day workshop will cover providing H.323 videoconferencing services as part of a global higher education community. It will cover national videoconferencing services operating today; the standards and technologies involved in establishing multi-site videoconferences, including numbering plans; best practices in videoconferencing, including video, audio, and room set-up; and video streaming and data collaboration services that complement videoconferencing.

The workshop will include hands-on time spent setting up videoconferences using equipment from different vendors.

The target audience consists of people with hands-on experience with H.323 videoconferencing who have or plan to have a support role at their institution in facilitating national and international videoconferencing. The two speakers have worked with videoconferencing and international collaborations for many years.

Egon Verharen of SURFnet is responsible for videoconferencing projects at the Dutch NRN, former chair of the TERENA working group TF-STREAM on conferencing and streaming, member of the Commons management team, and founding member of the Numerical Address Space management working group overseeing the Global Dialling Scheme development.
