Rochester Gets new Video Conferencing Center

A new video conferencing center was unveiled yesterday at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) in Rochester. The equipment comes courtesy of California's Cisco Systems. The 14-seat room matches the audio and lighting in other TelePresence Centers. The donation, valued at $700,000, is specially designed to accommodate sign language interpreters. Engineers will use the system to study ways to have cameras focus, not just on the person speaking, but on a person signing. WHAM-TV has this short video report below on DeafNewsToday.com.
