Available Resources

  • If you wish to videoconference via a larger display or projector, the Hamilton Resource Calendar can help you find an appropriate room on campus for your conversation. Rooms equipped with LCD screens are especially suitable.
  • If your computer does not have a webcam or microphone, ITS maintains a small pool of high-quality external webcams with integrated microphones that may be checked out by Staff and Faculty for videoconferences. Please contact the ITS Help Desk (helpdesk@hamilton.edu, x4181) for reservation information.
  • If you intend to use your own laptop for the videoconference, please note that you may need an adaptor to connect it to the screens or projectors in various rooms on campus. If needed, and based on availability, Audiovisual Services (avs@hamilton.edu, x4120) can provide Staff and Faculty with an adaptor to connect your computer.
  • Please also have a look at our "Create a High-Quality Videoconference Guide" to make your call the highest possible quality.
