Type Of Review: Miscellaneous

The idea of video conferencing is a brilliant one. Imagine being able to communicate live using both audio/video forms from virtually any remote area?

This powerful ability can be put to use in conducting distant learning, distant meetings and conferences. Or simply, it has the potential to replace our good old telephone system to include the long missing visual dimension.

The conception of the idea must have sprouted more than a decade back, but we're not seeing the widespread adoptation on our desktops. So what's hindering its widespread use? Is the idea feasible?

"It was quite fun initially, and we could talk and see each other with little latency."

Development on the personal computer front has been lightning fast (to put it mildly), and no longer are we hungering for raw processing power alone, no longer are digital cameras inferior, in any sense, to conventional ones.

Just what's preventing this perfectly good idea from taking off?

This time, I'm taking a look at Alaris QuickVideo DVC1 camera. A cleverly designed, low-cost device which does more than just video conferencing (Fortunately!).
