Video Teleconferencing (VTC)
College of Veterinary Medicine

The VTC is available throughout the year, and can accommodate groups up to 30 people (conference seating is available for 15). It is open to the entire Cornell community. However, scheduling priority will be given to individuals or groups affiliated with the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The College's VTC suite uses IP-based videoconferencing technology. This technology uses internet connections. By partnering with CIT, we are also able to provide access to remote sites via ISDN (dedicated phone lines). ISDN lines incur additional long distance charges, which can be difficult to predict and add significantly to the cost of the videoconference.

Videoconferences can be an effective solution for meetings, seminars, symposia, colloquia, conferences, interviews, consulting, or interactive training.


The College's VTC is equipped to provide point to point IP based videoconferences. For events requiring connection to multiple sites, or connection via ISDN lines, we will collaborate with CIT to provide the necessary technical assistance. College staff will make all technical arrangements for your videoconference, regardless of whether you use IP or ISDN technology. Additional services such as recording and storage for web delivery are also available through collaboration with CIT.
