IP Video User Group - Equipment Certification and Registration

Procedure to certify and register IP video equipment with the Video Conferencing Services (VCS).

The following form is provided to gather specific information necessary to certify your IP video equipment and to generate a data base of registered equipment, insuring the highest quality conference possible. It will be necessary to consult your local IT technician to confirm such items as IP address, or dedicated switched port availability. This form is forwarded to OIT/VCS when completed.

  1. OIT/VCS receives the request, verifies that the minimum standards have been met. A unique name and address are then assigned for the equipment and OIT Network Operations will register the equipment with the proper gatekeeper.
  2. A test of the equipment is then scheduled between OIT/VCS and the user to familiarize the user with the equipment and to verify good video, audio quality and circuit performance.
  3. Upon completion of successful testing, OIT/VCS will issue a certification of registration for user's records.

To request certification/registration of your IP video equipment, fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
