  • 4. Desktop Video Conferencing User Guide 1 About Desktop Video Conferencing Desktop Video Conferencing (DVC) is an exciting new way to communicate with one or more people directly from your desktop PC. As a completely software-based solution, installation, implementation and operation are simple processes. No MCU or conference bridge is required. All you need is broadband Internet access, your desktop PC and a web cam. Multi-party conferencing can offer significant time and cost savings. Rather than traveling to a meeting, you can meet face-to-face over the Internet. Since DVC is as easy to use as a telephone, you can quickly establish conferences within a building or around the world. 2 Minimum System Requirements Hardware: Pentium III 750 MHz 16 Mb Video 16K Color 256 Mb RAM 20 Mb free disk space USB port Operating Systems: Windows 98 SE, 2000, ME, XP Peripherals: web cam (or video camera with capture card), microphone, speakers www.sagaxis.com 3
