Tools: Picture Tel

Picture Tel enables effective communication among large groups in conference rooms, boardrooms, and auditoriums around the world.

At MIT, we have used the system for lectures between universities and for video conference among distant partners. If the quality of the audio and sounds is very good, the cost for communications is very high comparing to the "0" cost for Netmeeting (communication is going through the Internet). This is especially why it is used for lectures, important presentations and/or final reviews.

Excerpt from http://www.ivci.com/ipower.html?refer=gawPicTel

[Picture Tel] is a powerful video conferencing system that allows a very good interaction among groups. Peripherals like ImageShare allow a user to plug their laptop directly into the video system and with the press of a button, display the information on their PC to the remote sites in a video call.
