The old Tandberg video conference system has successfully been replaced with the Connect@NWU service.
In 2014, as part of the eCommunication project, a total of five meeting venues were equipped with modern video conference facilities across campuses. Since the start of 2015 another five meeting venues have been equipped.
Currently there are two equipped venues at the Institutional Office, two on the Mafikeng campus, four on the Potchefstroom campus, and two on the Vaal Triangle campus.
The new service is well used and since January 2015 a total of 131 hosts used 291 distinct virtual meeting rooms for a total duration of 4,009 hours. During this period, the virtual meeting room associated with Room 134 at the Institutional Office (one of the frequently used venues) has hosted 89 unique sessions, with an average session duration of 2 hours and 7 minutes, totalling more than 187 hours.
