Lesson 14. Multiple Audio and Video Mess... > With whom can you video conference?

With whom can you video conference?

A video conference with more than one person takes a powerful Mac and a good broadband connection; please see the specs on page 348. If you are able to participate in a video conference with more than one person, the camera icon in your Buddy name shows multiple cameras. If someone in your Buddy List is able to participate, she shows multiple cameras, as well. And it takes the most powerful Mac to initiate a video conference with up to four people.

In my home office we've got three desktop Macs and two laptops; in the Mary Sidney Society office across the hall is another tower; and upstairs in my library is a lovely iMac. Of these seven Macs, only two of them (the G5 desktop and the G4 PowerBook) are capable of video-conferencing with more than two people, and only the G5 can initiate it. Sigh.
