Video and data conferences in the vc room of the kiz

The kiz provides a video conference room including the relevant equipment where it is possible to perform high-quality video and data conferences. Up to six persons (which is within the viewing range of the camera) can actively participate. 

  • Test conferences
    By now the relevant video conference standars are established internationally but they can differ very much within their implementation and configuration. We therefore advise to arrange a tes conference with a partner especially before the very first video conference.

    Technical as well as use-oriented possibilities of the video and data conference like link connection, monitoring the connection, switching  the different local image sources, operation of the microfone, operation of the main camera (preadjustment of the camera position), link connection.

    The video conference room kann be booked by the hour on working days between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Other days or times are possible by appointment.
