Digital Collaboration

Introducing the Digital Collaboration Team!

Need to video conference with your peers?
Want to replace that outdated conference room system?
Do you just need an AV expert in your corner?

The Institute for Innovative Education now provides AV consultation and installation services.
Our goal is to meet your needs, and the process is simple:

  1. We meet with you to discover your needs and see the space
  2. We put together an easy to read job overview which outlines the cost and proposed functionality of your new equipment, meeting current URMC AV equipment and performance standards
  3. We obtain purchase quotes from UR-Approved vendors, and hand them off to your department for ordering
  4. We install the equipment for you and will provide future support

Our team handles the installation from start to finish. If needed, we even collaborate with Facilities to rework your current space. Check out how we compare to outside AV vendors.
