Worldwide Video/Audio Conferencing

The Friday Center is equipped to send your conference live to a group that cannot attend in-person, or bring a renowned expert at a distant location to your conference participants. Our interactive video conferencing capabilities include one-way, two-way, and multi-point communication to or from any place in the world.

Live and On-Demand Webstreaming

We can broadcast live and/or on-demand webstreaming of your conference, including speakers, presentations, and audio from anyone who is in the room or virtually attending through video/audio conferencing.

Video and Audio Recording

Our technology staff can record your conference using multiple cameras to capture audience, presenters, and their presentations. Audio recording is also available for playback, transcription, podcasting, or webstreaming.

Smart Classrooms

Several of our meeting rooms are equipped with smart lecterns that feature built-in touch panels. Presenters can operate the LCD projector, computer, Blu-ray/DVD player, and document camera, as well as control audio and light levels all from the lectern.

Control Room

The Friday Center features an audiovisual control room where our technicians monitor and control audiovisual functions in each of the meeting rooms. We are able to see when you need help and respond immediately, ensuring your event runs smoothly.
