Telecommunications provides both audio and video conferencing services
for all departments at Texas Tech University. From standard toll-free
audio conferencing to complete "webinar" meetings with video and
presentations, employees are welcome to utilize the capabilities of TTU's
unified communications conferencing services.
Ad hoc conferences and meetings
Conference calls can be instantly created while conversing with another
individual. Simply use the 'invite more people' functionality of Lync, or
drag & drop a Lync contact into an existing conversation. A
multi-party conference call will be automatically set up without further
actions on your part.
Scheduled conferences and meetings
Scheduling an online meeting is simple and straightforward using
Microsoft Outlook with Lync installed. While creating a meeting
request, a simple click on the Lync Meeting button is all that is required.
One can send the meeting request to any e-mail account (TechMail, Hotmail,
Gmail, etc.) and people can join from where ever they are. Note, that
audio conferences have a toll-free number for external callers.
The maximum number of attendees in an audio/video conference is currently
50. If you have a need for larger conferences, please contact
Telecommunications at 806.742.8000.
Audio, video and data conferencing is a component of the University's
unified communications strategy. A great wealth of information on audio
and video conferencing can be found at
