Polycom PVX software makes desktop video conferencing work
Until quite recently, desktop video conferencing with a PC and a low cost camera had sounded like a great idea but usually involved connection difficulties and very low quality video. One product that can make desktop video conferencing much more useful in a business setting is the Polycom PVX software. It works with many USB Web cams and provides very good video quality using H.264 compression, although PVX is definitely a resource hog.

This download was originally published on April 15, 2005. In that review we criticized PVX for lacking a small app that sits in the systray and answers incoming calls. Since that time we have discovered the product's "Auto-start Application in Background" setting that does just this.
