Cameras

We recommend the following cameras:
  • Logitech QuickCam Sphere AF
  • Logitech QuickCam E3500
  • Samsung Pleomax PWC-7100
  • Genius Look320S
  • Integrated Lenovo 3000 n100
  • Skypemate WC-103M

Headsets

The recommended headset model (i.e. headphones with microphone) is:
  • Logitech Clear Chat Style
Also the following headsets showed good results:
  • ClearChat PC Wireless (helps to suppress echo)
  • Logitech USB Desktop Microphone - Mikrophon (good sound, but bad echo cancellation)
Note for Mac OS X users: The build-in microphone normally has quite good quality and echo cancellation, so Mac OS X users often do not even require a headset.

Speakerphones

When several people participate from the same location, we recommend using the following speakerphone models:
  • Phoenix Audio Quattro2 USB Speakerphone MT301 (a single microphone + speakers can be used even with 20-30 people sitting in a room)
  • Phoenix DUET Executive
  • Jabra SPEAK410
  • Plantronics MCD 100M
  • Integrated Lenovo 3000 n100
  • Konftel 300
