Who We Are

BEMC Video Conference Network Operations Center (VNOC) has been in place since 2006. Since that time, our services have been used extensively for distance education, electronic field trips, meetings, conferences, interviews, depositions and statewide training. The service is available to Ohio's K-12 school districts, colleges and universities, educational service providers, public television stations and the state agencies, departments, boards and commissions.
