Service SummaryTelepresence is an immersive style of videoconferencing that emulates the experience of having all participants in the same room. The technology transmits crystal-clear, spatial audio, and high definition video between rooms designed to match and appear as an extension of each other. When not in use by a class, the five telepresence rooms across Mason's campuses— three in Fairfax, one in Prince William, and one in Arlington— are available for department meetings. See List Here
Collaborative Video Technologies (CVT) supports the telepresence technology involved in the Governor of Virginia’s state initiative, 4-VA, a consortium of four state universities working to meet needs identified by the Governor’s Higher Education Commission and Jobs Commission.
