Connect more devices, host large events with BlueJeans

By | June 4, 2018

Information and Technology Services (ITS) continues to influence new enhancements to BlueJeans, the cloud-based conferencing service that offers audio, video, and content sharing.

Regular BlueJeans meetings can now accommodate up to 150 connected devices (previously 100). You can connect from your unit’s room system, desktop and mobile apps, or by telephone.

As part of a renewed contract, ITS also negotiated continued access to BlueJeans Events (formerly Primetime) at no extra cost to the university community through the next U-M fiscal year.

Stream to an audience with BlueJeans Events

Apart from the base product, BlueJeans Events provides a more controlled environment in which moderators can mute or promote presenters and stream to thousands of passive viewers. The system also automatically sends chat messages, poll results, and a list of participants to the person who set up the meeting.

Why use BlueJeans at U-M?

  1. Units cover the cost — Most likely, your unit already pays for it. The cost to cover BlueJeans is billed to participating units.
  2. HIPAA compliance — BlueJeans can be used to discuss Protected Health Information, like patient names, thanks to an agreement between U-M and BlueJeans Network.
  3. Works with Weblogin — No need to create a separate account: log in with your U-M uniqname and Level-1 password at
  4. Trusted relationship — ITS has negotiated a data protection agreement with BlueJeans Network, and also ensured the service works across the U-M community.
  5. Recorded meetings — Capture and share audio and video from any BlueJeans meeting.
