Video Conference Center In the interest of providing better service to its customers, the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) has established a Video Conference Center (VCC) to expedite patent and trademark prosecution. The VCC is presently administered by the Patent Academy and is available for authorized official business during normal business hours (8:30 AM - 5:00 PM, EST). The VCC equipment includes a high resolution document camera, direct computer input, VCR display capability and a high speed, high resolution G-4 facsimile machine. At this time, use of the VCC will be limited to our partnership Patent and Trademark Depository Libraries (PTDLs) located at Sunnyvale, Calif. and the Great Lakes Patent and Trademark Center at the Detroit Public Library, which have duplicate video equipment. Customers wishing to utilize the facilities at the above noted PTDLs rather than coming to the PTO for a face-to-face interview, should contact the patent examiner or trademark examining attorney and identify two alternative dates and time for a video conference. The patent examiner or trademark examining attorney will then contact Patent Academy personnel who will, in turn, make all the arrangements. The customer will be notified as to the date and time of the video conference.
