6:33 p.m., April 2, 2013--The Institute for Global Studies (IGS), located in Elliott Hall, is pleased to offer new video conferencing technology as a resource to assist UD faculty and staff with University-related international communications. The new equipment is available to all faculty with international partnerships. 

The new Polycom system projects high-definition images and can be used for video and telephone conferencing. Images are displayed on an 80-inch flat-screen monitor, and audio transmissions are presented in full stereo. A bridge capability supports video conferencing for up to four connections. Computers also can be connected to the system for presentations.
