Video Collaboration

At the heart of the global eResearch initiative is the need for enhanced collaboration. Researchers in different geographical regions need to be able to communicate effectively and share data in order to further their research outcomes. QCIF provides free video collaboration systems for researchers throughout Australia.

AccessGrid

For large scale group video conferencing we recommend the AccessGrid service. AccessGrid video conference rooms are located at most Australian universities. The AccessGrid group collaboration service allows large-scale communication among dispersed groups requiring more advanced audio/video capabilities. These solutions provide researchers the ability to interact in an environment that facilitates teamwork and culminates in world-class research.
