Access Grid Video Conferencing

The Access Grid is an integrated presentation environment which supports large-scale collaborations from distributed meetings, seminars, lectures, to tutorials and training. It provides high-quality, real-time audio and video over high-speed networks to facilitate group-to-group communications, both formal and informal, and interfaces with grid middleware and visualization environments.

Do-It-Yourself Options

For a low-cost solution to individuals needing to connect with professional quality video-conferencing systems from remote locations, learn more about Movi, a PC-based format that is compatible with larger-scale H.264 formats. Movi is supported and administered through AMPS.


For point-to-point connectivity between individuals, we recommend self-service solutions such as Skype and iChat.
