Here are the Zoom System Requirements

Step 6: Is any other equipment needed?

  • Request a Meeting OWL only if there are multiple participants. The OWL is not needed for all Zoom meetings.
  • Multimedia Services has found that the additional use of the Meeting OWL is only helpful with multiple participants.
  • The OWL can be reserved for Meetings through Request Center or purchased by your division.
  • Suggested Meeting rooms for use with the Meeting Owl: D260A, S201 & S301, T205. The OWL will not work in all the classrooms.
  • All OWL requests require a 24 hour notice. You can also check out an OWL for the day. It is a plug and play accessory for your laptop.

Step 7: What is the Meeting OWL?

The Meeting OWL video conferencing camera dynamically captures 360 video and superior audio for a near face-to-face experience engineered for plug & play simplicity. [USB port and power outlet are required.]

The Meeting OWL works best in a meeting room setting versus a classroom setting. The Meeting Owl can be found at Owl Labs.
