Clemson University implemented Cisco® Meeting Server as a video conferencing system during the Spring 2017 semester. Cisco® Meeting Server is part of our Cisco package and is one of Clemson University's supported video conferencing applications that provides the delivery of real-time video meeting spaces. A user only needs a web browser and an Internet connection to participate in these synchronous online sessions. A webcam is preferable but not needed. Cisco® Meeting Server software brings video, audio, and web communication together to meet the collaboration needs of the modern workplace. It allows anyone to create and join meetings easily, from a room or desktop video system, mobile client, or browser. Everyone gets a consistent, familiar meeting experience, whether they’re joining a meeting using a Cisco or third-party video endpoint, a Cisco Jabber® client, a WebRTCcompatible browser, or Skype for Business. The Cisco Meeting App, which is included in the Cisco Meeting Server license, enables easy meeting access via a client or WebRTCenabled browser.
All faculty and staff already have access to the Cisco® Meeting Server. To create a meeting space and begin using Cisco® Meeting Server, download the app (link below) or open your web browser and navigate to the following URL in your web browser: https://cmse1.clemson.edu/. Log in using your network login and password.
Cisco® Meeting Server is available for free to all faculty and staff at Clemson University. At present, students can participate in spaces but cannot create spaces. Cisco® Meeting Server is recommended for small to medium-sized video conferences. However, if you plan to use Cisco® Meeting Server for large meetings, please email ITHELP@clemson.edu and work with Clemson Online for scheduling.
