Have you begun testing the waters of video conferencing yet?  Maybe you’re light years into it and have it all figured out…but if you don’t, can I steer you toward a couple things? Maybe three?

In my consulting work, I’m beginning to use video chat to make it better than a conference call.  To do that, you’ll need a camera.  I’m going with the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 and the Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Headset.  You can read more (and even order your own right here.

Where am I going to use them?  How am I going to use them?  Although Skype has been around for several years, there are some other great, easy solutions for video chat.

Google’s new video chat is one that you definitely need to check out.  Free.  Easy to use.

Another great option is TokBox.  Whether you’ve got a staff that’s scattered (such as a multi-site operation) or you’ve got clients in other cities, TokBox gives you the ability to host a Brady Bunch-like display that will allow your team to see each other.  Best part?  It’s free.
