I'm attempting to get video output from a feed received with Netmeeting
to a composite video signal (for transfer, say, to a VCR, though that's
not actually our application).
My methodology so far is to run a PC at 640x480, get the "Remote Video"
window fullscreen or as close to it as I can manage, and run the signal
through a scan converter which gives me composite and S-video outputs
But of course this doesn't let me use the other features of Netmeeting -
- just barely OK for my currently audio-and-video-only application, but
not ideal. And quality is also worse than it needs to be since the
scaling up introduces "jaggies" and the scan converter isn't so high
quality a device either; in short, this process has more steps than it
seems like it should.
Anyone know of a technique -- presumably involving a hardware device
with video output capabilities, i.e. the ATI All In Wonder or
comparable products of that sort -- to get just the Remote Video window
on a standard video connector? Ideal would be a notebook-friendly
solution -- something for which a PC card can do the job, I suppose.
But am currently primarily looking to get a better sense of the
choices... which *have* to include something better than my current
BTW, I realize it's a bit off-topic, but how about the alternatives to
Netmeeting? I mean, are there ***reasonably-priced*** (say, under
$1500 per location) dedicated hardware boxes that can do what I'm
after? I know that, in the ~$5000+-per-system family, there are
perfectly acceptable choices, but that's more than my current budget
Thanks in advance!
