We are testing two systems which allow video conferencing with low bandwidth requirements.
Cu-SeeMe is a protocol and a software family with very low bandwidht requirements developed at Cornell university. More information and public domain software for Macintosh and Windows is available from the Cornell Cu-SeeMe home page. Cornell also has references to commercial versions.
We started using Cu-SeeMe in 1995. For a report of our early experiences and more tips, see the report about the 1995 virtual conference.
Cu-SeeMe conferences from StatLab Heidelberg are usually sent from reflect.statlab.uni-heidelberg.de [18.104.22.168].
Things to remember when setting up a transmission:
Needs QuickTime Conferencing software. (Commercial only?) QuickTime Conferencing has also support for a shared blackboard.
- Use a low resolution monitor for input if no accelerated digitalization is available.
- Switch off virtual memory
- Make sure the input sources are selected correctly
