1 - P4 workstation, 1.8Ghz or better, 512 MB
1 - 17" LCD primary monitor
1 - Matrox G450 AGP dual output
1 - SOHO echo cancelling PCI card
1 - Alesis 6 channel mixer
2 - Shure tabletop microphones w/cables
2 - Sony PTZ 1100 camers
2 - 50 ft coax BNC video cables
2 - BNC to male RCA adaptors
1 - computer speakers
There has been talk on the AG list about using a ClearOne AccuMic
tabletop system instead of echo cancelling, mixer, mics and speakers.
Its a about the size of a small shoebox and offers all those abilities
in one. I would probably use this if I built another AG node.
Also, the microphones and cameras were given to us by the AV
department. When I asked for them, they said they had crates of these
laying around because they had just upgraded all video conferencing
rooms on campus.
The AG community also offers a hardware section dedicated to show
users what is known to work:
