Which hardware is required for video calls?

You will need a (good) microphone, headphones and a suitable web cam. For optimal audio quality the RRZE recommends the use of a headset.
Due to the current situation it is unfortunately very difficult to obtain suitable hardware, because supplies cannot meet demands.

In addition, these devices are currently also not available via IT-procurement frameworks.
For this reason, institutes may obtain suitable devices from a supplier of their choice, provided the IT procurement guidelines of the FAU are being followed.
It is necessary, however, to first seek approval from the RRZE. In case of further questions please contact the RRZE directly at rrze-hardware@fau.de.
