About Conferencing Services

Whether your conference needs are local, regional, or international, IT offers various conferencing options to connect users without the inconvenience and expense of travel. Our conferencing solutions allow participants to conduct simultaneous audio and/or video communication between two or more locations anywhere in the world.

Audio Conferencing

Audio-based teleconferencing is a great way to connect multiple users from across Sheridan's campuses or off-site locations via telephone. IT's state-of-the-art conferencing infrastructure ensures the highest quality of service to meeting attendees. No special equipment required. All you and your participants need is a phone line and a touch-tone phone. Once all participants are connected into the conference call, everyone can speak normally and join in the discussion, just as if they were seated around a boardroom table.

High Definition Video Conferencing

Sheridan staff can take advantage of the high-definition (HD), video conferencing systems that are available at the Davis, Hazel McCallion and Trafalgar Road campuses. These systems provide an excellent user experience with true-to-life quality for rich interaction and team collaboration. HD video conferencing is ideal for meetings between campuses or can be used to connect external users with any H.323 compatible system. Sheridan's video conferencing system is fully interoperable with standards-based video, phone, or PC video.

Mobile Video Carts

Mobile video carts can be reserved and delivered to most* campus locations. There are two video carts each available for sign-out at the Davis, Hazel McCallion and Trafalgar Road campuses. There is one video cart available at the Skills Training Centre.
