Audio Visual Services

UNE Sydney has video conferencing facilities available for educational, promotional and administrative purposes.

Video conferencing enables people at different locations to interact in real time, using two-way video and audio transmitted communication over special telephone lines or the World Wide Web. It provides a 'see, listen, show and talk' capability which is close to real 'face-to-face' communications.

Video conferencing can link you to an extensive network of sites around Australia and internationally, where you can link to just a single site or to several sites simultaneously.

Our facilities are suitable for teaching, interviewing and meetings. You can conduct:

  • tutorials and demonstrations
  • postgraduate supervision meetings
  • administrative or research project meetings
  • consultations
  • training activities
  • product launches
  • promotional activities
  • interviews
