Document Cameras                           back to the List>>>

A document camera lets you share and write on paper documents while remote participants watch. Because you share the information over video, you don’t have to spend time trying to fax documents and you also avoid the expense of sending them by courier before the meeting. A document camera is great for showing other objects as well – a printed circuit board, color or fabric samples, or even a miniature model of your current projects.

Networking Devices NT1                  back to the List>>>

Using the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) Basic Rate Interchange ( Basic Rate Interface in ISDN ) service, an NT1 (network terminating unit 1) is a device that accepts a two-wire signal from the phone company and converts it to a four-wire signal that sends and receives to and from devices within the home or business. In the U.K. and some other countries, the NT1 is located at the telephone company’s central office. In the U.S., the NT1 is a separate box at the home or business or it can be integrated into one device. If it is a separate box, up to eight devices, such as telephones and computers, can be attached to it. If the NT1 is built into one device, then only that one device can be served by the line coming in from the phone company. Additional devices would require one or more additional lines.

Videoconference Lighting                back to the List>>>

Videoconference Lighting makes a dramatic difference in how you look to people on the other end of conferences. These are special color temperature lights that attach to your ceiling or can be tripod mounted.

Videoconference Furniture will be necessary if you are planning to convert your existing conference room into a videoconference room. It might be time to replace the old table and chairs with new, more videoconference-friendly furniture. Proper videoconference tables are wedge-shaped so that the maximum number of people can be seen on camera. In addition, you will want to place your conferencing equipment on appropriate carts and stands.
