A well integrated setup at a location allows for ease of use and quick access for various types of events. Facilities, like a classroom or a conference room, that are set up with proper lighting, backgrounds etc. create a context for a good learning experience. Audio equipment can range from a simple tabletop microphone to a fully integrated sound system with mixing board, microphones, speakers etc. The video or display solution can also range from a simple TV monitor to the use of TV screens and video projectors for larger audiences.
The videoconferencing system that brings it all together can be purchased from multiple vendors, ranging from basic point-to-point systems to multipoint systems capable of connecting many locations together at the same time if local bandwidth requirements are met. These systems are standards-based, can be used in a variety of events, and also provide the quality required for a good experience in a large audience.
