VisionNet Connection

MTASCD coordinates its events and activities with SAM.  For many years we utilized their connection to VisionNet's video conferencing services allowing members to participate in our meetings and MTASCD events, long distance.  There may be a time in our future work when we want to also include their services to provide staff development and meeting connections for members, partnering schools and organizations.

To connect via a video conferencing system:

  1. If you are a VisionNet member you can connect via SAM's Virtual Meeting Room at 804422599.  
  2. The dial string for Tandberg systems is 804422599@216.220.15.242 and the dial string for Polycom users is 216.220.15.242##804422599.   The SIP endpoint is 804422599@vnetvcs.vision.net.  
  3. You might do a test call in advance to make sure you are able to get in.  You should see  your room mirror back to you and it should say you are the first person to enter the  conference.   
  4. Technical issues?  Call VisionNet at 1-406‐467‐4712

This conference room is tied to the same video conferencing room that VisionNet provides for MTASCD.  The room should tell you how many people are already on the conference call.  If you are the first person, stay on the line and wait for others to join you.   If you have a webcam and a computer you can use the video conferencing directions on the menu.


Call VisionNet 1-406‐467‐4712 if you have technical issues and if (for whatever reason) this meeting room does not seem to work, go to back to meeting agenda as technology difficulties may require the use of updated meeting room number.
