Audio and Video Conferencing
Please note that the Audio and Video Conferencing - StarLeaf platform was retired as of the 1st July 2022 and the parent company has ceased trading as of October 2022
After this date, AV Services will reject any new requests to setup an Audio and Video Conference booking on this platform and within these rooms.
All existing sessions will remain operational after this date for as long as the in room Video Conferencing hardware exists and the self service support content will still be published, however any requests to modify existing bookings for existing customers will be handled on a case by case basis and may be subject to the request being declined. We recommend all new and existing customers utilise the Microsoft Teams platform.
Wired Video Conferencing
Some of our meeting rooms have fixed Logitech Rally Bars or Logitech MeetUps for conference calling with Teams. MeetUps and Meeting Owl Pros are also available to borrow from the Library loan stock.
These devices act as a combined webcam, microphone and speaker for your laptop. To connect, plug the USB into your laptop and in Teams select the device as the source for speaker, microphone and video to use on the call.
If you are using a room with a projector or LCD screen, connect to this in the usual way (HDMI, VGA, Solstice) and select the input on the AV control panel to share the conference call to the room's display.
Please do take time to check out our Best Practices, Hints and Tips to help provide you with a smooth end user experience.
Video Conferencing - short term requirement? (MS Teams enabled)
You can also borrow one of our portable MS Teams compatible Meeting Owl Pro or Logitech MeetUp video conferencing devices, these are ideal for use in a room that doesn't have any fixed audio and video conferencing system installed.
The Owl and MeetUp are recommended for meetings with a maximum attendance level of between 6-8 people in the room and should utilise the linked recommended room layout for optimum performance.Link opens in a new window
All of our Meeting Owl Pro and Logitech MeetUp video conference units come in a handy carry case with a shoulder strap and handle. We provide mains power leads and USB Type A connector and extension leads (for connection with your laptop, desktop PC or Teaching Room PC) inside each carry case.
