Skype

Videoconferencing and Audio Visual Services (VAVS) at JCU neither uses nor supports Skype.

Commercial videoconferencing systems such as Cisco (Tandberg) use internationally recognised standards (for example H.323) as laid down by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) whereas Skype uses proprietary protocols developed by Skype which are incompatible with the international standards.

If Skype is to be used, then any PC with a decent ADSL connection will do.
