Conducting a video or web conference is a great way to communicate with people in different locations (or even time zones) as well as share and collaborate. Your communication needs will determine the type of conference you hold. Video and web conferences are becoming more and more popular in a bid to slash travel costs, go green and boost productivity.
Go to the ICT Self Service Portal to set up a VIDEO CONFERENCE (select ICT Services > Audio visual > video conference request).
Video conferencing (VC) uses audio and video to bring people at different sites together for meetings, lectures, conferences or one-on-one teaching.
We support the Bridgit collaboration tool. You will need a video camera, microphone and speakers so that participants can see and hear you during the conference.

Web conferencing is a simpler form of video conferencing whereby participants sit at their own computers and are connected to each other via the internet. It’s ideally designed for meetings and conferences involving a small number of people.
We support the Adobe Connect web conferencing application. To use Adobe Connect you will need:
- A PC or laptop connected to the internet (min broadband speed)

- A webcam if you wish to use video
