VTEL system links three campuses

By Jeffrey S. Douglas

The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine has acquired a state-of-the-art room-based video-conferencing system which has provided a real-time audio and video link between its three campuses.
"We're excited about putting this technology on line," said VMRCVM Dean Peter Eyre. "The system will foster increased collaboration between our campuses and create new opportunities to communicate with those we serve."
The technology is already being used for administrative meetings and academic presentations. The college plans to develop the application so that it will support continuing-education opportunities for veterinarians and producers.
