Both video conference systems are PolyCom systems and are based on the H.323 standard protocol, which is an IP based protocol. The permanent ones are high definition which give users the very high video quality.

The H.323 protocol allows the video conferencing system to communicate with other video conferencing facilities around the world free of charge for IADT staff, researchers and students due to it using the internet as the ‘carrier’ as opposed to phone line based systems. All institute of technologies and universities throughout Ireland have similar systems that are compatible with IADT’s system. The system allows IADT to host video conferences with up to three other locations. If your requirements require more that three other locations IADT have access to a video conference bridge in HEAnet, which allow larger groups to video conference together.
