Video Conferencing

CIS offer cloud based video conferencing using Zoom.

  • Staff & students wishing to use video conferencing facilities should following the booking information below.
  • External users wishing to use the facilities should contact Event Durham 0191 33 42887, event@durham.ac.uk

Note: the information below relates to video conferencing not ‘desktop conferencing’ (e.g. Skype or Skype for Business). Video conferencing and desktop conferencing use different technologies to connect and therefore cannot currently be used to connect to each other.

Video Conferencing in a Lecture Theatre

Some of the Lecture Theatres around the University Campus have the capability of connecting into a Zoom meeting.

Within the TLC Lecture Theatres there is an option on the AV Touch Panel under the tab "Zoom Dial". Here you can enter the Zoom Meeting ID to be connected directly to the Zoom Meeting. Any meeting passwords can be entered after this point.

More Video Conferencing spaces with the Zoom Tab feature will be made available in the future.

Lecture Theatres such as those in the Calman have the ability to connect to Zoom meetings but not using the Meeting ID number but instead a h.323 number which is provided on the meeting invite via email.

To access Zoom meetings, select "More Sources" and then "Video Conferencing" enter the h.323 number on the meeting invite email with a "#" at the beginning and then press the green "Dial" button to connect.
