Video Conferencing Services

William Paterson University has a wide range of multimedia equipment that will facilitate live video conferencing both on and off-campus. Some uses of video conferencing are:

  • Conducting interviews with potential job applicants almost anywhere
  • Holding meetings at other locations and bringing workshops together
  • Reaching educational experts around the world and bringing them into your classroom experience
  • Conducting synchronous classes to remote sites via Presentation Training Classroom (PTC)

Our PTC Room in Hobart Hall will seat 24 people and has an observation room with additional seating for 18. The PTC Room is equipped with a document camera, VHS & DVD player, and a computer with internet access. This equipment is combined with several cameras, microphones, speakers and displays to offer participants a complete interactive video conference experience with locations around the world.

The Martini Broadcast Studio, also in Hobart Hall, is a state-of-the-art digital studio designed and built to provide video conferencing and live broadcasting capabilities. With seats for 88 people, 3 cameras, a 12’ robotic camera jib, teleprompters, special soundproofing, lighting, and a modified THX-certified surround sound system, the Martini Broadcast Studio is an auditorium that can fulfill almost any conferencing experience.

We also offer both satellite downlink and uplink capabilities. Our Ku Band satellite earth station is available to broadcast to both domestic and international satellites. Reception is available for both C and Ku-band broadcasts and can be viewed throughout campus via fiber or coaxial cable.
