Computer webcam Camera microphone

A good advise: Use a USB heaset or speakerphone
When you plug-in a USB heaset to your computer it will usually configure your systems audio setup automatically. You are therefore best off with a USB-headset or a speakerphone. A speakerphone is a combination of a speaker and microphones in the same unit, that removes echo.

See example: Scenarios

Step 1: Attach a headset or speakerphone before opening meeting room: It is highly recommended that you use a headset or speakerphone during your meetings. Make sure to attach the headset/speakerphone and camera to the computer before opening the meeting room. Also make sure you have not switched off the sound on the headset or switched off the sound on the computer.

Step 2: Audio setup in Adobe Connect: Consult the Audio Setup Wizard via the Connect meeting room to optimize the sound. Click Meeting > Audio Setup Wizard. Follow tutorial.
Step 3: Activating the microphone: You activate your microphone by clicking on the microphone icon

Click on the microphone icon again to stop broadcasting the audio. To adjust the volume you click on the arrow next to the microphone > Adjust Microphone Volume.
Step 4: Activating the camera: Click on the camera icon and next Start Sharing in the video window. To pause the video feed, and use a picture in stead of video, you click on the pause icon on your video window .

Step 5: Setting up audio on your computer: If you have problem with the audio and video in step 1-4, here is a tutorial for setting up audio on your operating system.

Follow a tutorial for Windows XP, Windows Vista/7 or Mac. When you have configured your audio succesfully, you can go through the Audio Setup Wizard again (step 2).

Step 6: Select the web camera and close applications: Make sure to close other applications, which may use the web camera. It you have several cameras attached to the computer, open the configuration window from the camera pod (1.) > Select Camera (2.) .

Select your camera from the drop down list and test the camera by clicking on the camera icon on the blue background (3). Now you should get a video signal from your web camera.

Finally, click the monitor icon in the bottom left corner and select Allow and Remember (4). Hereby, you accept broadcasting your camera and microphone in Connect and you will not see this dialog again.

Webcam advice....

by RHZ1

Hi,
I want to buy a good quality webcam for my notebook computer to use for instant messaging. Is it true that the new cameras with CCD sensors are much better than the older CMOS sensors? Are zoom and face tracking features really that important in practice? How is the general quality of microphones built in to the camera? Will much better sound quality be obtained with a separate microphone?
I'm thinking about the Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000, but I heard that it's pretty flimsy (which is crazy since the thing is so expensive). Creative Labs also makes a CCD type camera, but I haven't heard much about it

RE: Use Ustream

by Granduser1000

You can use Ustream ( ) to broadcast an event live on the web. You can connect a video camera to your computer and stream the footage over the internet live. You can also use your built in webcam (if you have one).
The quality of the footage might be terrible.
You need an internet connection. So if the event is at the beach, there might not be connectivity.
Audio will also be terrible. Unless they are speaking loudly or through a microphone.
Other people might be able to watch the stream
