Connected by the IITS Hub in Birmingham, IITS members have the ability to hold instate, national, or international conferences. IITS users can share courses and research or participate in meetings and colloquia with their peers across the street or around the world.
The IITS conferencing standard is "Compressed" video using the international standard communications protocol of H.26x, along with ISDN (H.320) & IP (H.323) network protocols combined with audio standards of G.7xx.
Using IITS services, members are able to hold conferences between most brands of video conferencing equipment that have standard-based and dial-up capabilities using ISDN or Internet communications protocols, at a variety of audio and video transmission rates. Users may also hold simultaneous multi-point conferences between any number of IITS rooms and other rooms outside the IITS network. IITS offers the highest quality audio and compressed video rates available (may be limited by the capabilities of the far-end equipment and network traffic for IP sites).
