Nonetheless ViaVideo is an excellent camera and if you get two of them and
both the school and the student use broadband, it could work.
Hope this helps.

Unfortunately this is an Elementary school.

Paul,
You could purchase a Polycom ViaVideo camera - Ebay has one in auction for
$130. right now:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=3763&item=5110884430&
rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW. Then, if the student has a computer and broadband they
could connect to the Polycom at Otter Valley - or any of the high schools
that have the VILN equipment, for that matter - and have interactive video
over IP from their house. Get in touch with me if you want more info on how
to do this.

Sorry, about the double posts.

Does anyone have experience with closed circuit TV?

I have been asked to set this up for a student that can't come to school.

I would be happy to help, but don't know where to start.

This brings to mind something like messenger and a quality webcam?  Does
anyone have experience with this?

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
