Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Institute for the Deaf has been tapped for its expertise by the Federal Communications Commission, RIT leaders said.

The Center on Access Technology Innovation Lab at NTID has been named the major technical subcontractor in a partnership with VTCSecure LLC.

The team will develop a video access technology reference platform, designed to advance telecommunications access for the deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-disabled populations in the United States. NTID will provide technology support as well as alpha and beta testing.
