Imagine using this in your next board room meeting.

I came across this video conferencing accessory that I think could lead to new ways to conference. I wonder what it would be like to substitute your standard VC HD camera with an iPad. That is if the next-gen iPad will have even better front facing camera, and if codec manufactures like LifeSize and Radvision would make codecs that could hook up with a tablet. That would definitely eliminate broken cameras and make codecs a bit more affordable. Not sure if that is even the thing to do, just wondering. Some manufactures are making the camera built into the codec itself like the Huawei TE30. It’s interesting to see where this idea of making the camera “mobile” in a video system will go. Hopefully it won’t just roll off the table.
