I wouldn't have believed the quality until I saw it for myself, but using Skype Video was really great. A couple of features really stood out:
1. Tunnels video through port 80 so it is easy to traverse the school district firewall – no network setup or extra permissions from network administrators.
2. Video could be expanded to full screen, with good resolution for a web cam (not great) but good enough.
3. Skype's experience with VOIP shines through on the audio, with no echo. That's right – voice cancellation.
4. Possibility of multi-point with Festoon .
Thanks to Shawn for pointing out this Skype feature.Share and Enjoy -
