Marratech is a videoconference system. NCEAS uses Marratech heavily, and we will use it for grants that include NCEAS.

Features:

  • is possible to conect a phone line
  • can also connect to polycom systems
    • once connected to the conference, click "dial out", and instead of a phone number, enter the port and IP address of the polycom unit like this: port:ip-address
  • NCEAS has licenses for an unlimited number of users in their "auditorium", and 10 users scattered across any number of other rooms. This makes scheduling flexible.

Usage:

  • NCEAS instruction page
  • A headset or echo-cancelling microphone is required.
  • It works best when set on push-to-talk, so audio traffic is minimized.
  • It works best with high bandwidth.
