Zoom Video Conferencing Solution

The program began with the selection and adoption of Zoom, the enterprise, cloud-based, video conferencing service, in July 2017. Zoom provided Penn State with a multifaceted video and audio conferencing system that can connect multiple people in one meeting without the need for dedicated video conferencing hardware.

During the spring 2018, Kaltura was piloted by students, faculty and staff across the University and successfully met the University’s needs in more than 150 different areas. Based on the pilot results and feedback from pilot participants, the Conferencing and Media Management Project Team recommended the University begin using Kaltura as an enterprise service.
