Blue Jeans for Faculty / Depts.

Overview

Blue Jeans is a video conferencing solution that brings major hardware and software video platforms together into a uniform, collaborative user experience. You can easily connect your SIP or H.323 Room System video devices (such as Polycom, LifeSize, and Cisco/Tandberg) to a Blue Jeans meeting and include participants using other technologies, including Skype for Business. Blue Jeans allows for synchronous playback across all meeting participants on room systems.

You can also connect (“pair”) your laptop to the room system and enable content sharing for a Blue Jeans meeting, including presentations, spreadsheets and videos. Blue Jeans will share this content with remote meeting participants.

See a video and instructions for connecting your room system to a Blue Jeans meeting.
