Tell me about video conferencing equipment and best practices?

Our organization is growing, and we need to improve our video conferencing capabilities. The usual setup is a 'home base' room with 5-10 people in it. That room is about 20' x 20' or so, and it has speakers built into it. The other folks calling into the meeting are usually solo workers, on their own computers, wearing headsets. The people in the 'home base' room can hear the people calling in, with fairly good audio quality. However, the other users have a very hard time hearing the people gathered in the main room. That microphone situation needs to be improved. Right now there is one Jabra USB Speakerphone - this model, I think. We use GoToMeeting and Skype. What are the options for improving the audio quality coming *from* the main room? Can we daisy chain those speakerphones together? Is there a better speakerphone model which can be daisy chained to have multiple bases around the room? Do the connected mics figure out which one to use or does it cause distortion or delay? Is there another model that is significantly better that doesn't have to be hardwired? Any other suggestions? [more inside]

Not a Hilton-wannabe, I swear

I'm looking for a workable, not-too-pricey (< $40) windows-compatible webcam to use for casual chatting. the price can go up a little bit of the webcam is awesome. i've looked at other askmefi threads, but the advice there seems to be get an isight (don't have $150) or logictech and creative labs cameras are good. but does anyone have any specific model recommendations? i was thinking the Creative Labs NX Pro, the Labtech Webcam Pro, or maybe the Creative Labs Webcame Live!, based solely on Amazon reviews as there doesn't seem to be much in webcam review sites out there.

Can anyone suggest good (and preferably free) video conferencing software? I need to run at 320x240 (min) at close to full motion and XP breaks NetMeeting. I have done some searching around and most of what turns up looks like it is designed for teenage-talking-heads types of chat applications, so I was hoping someone might be able to point me to something a little more industrial strength. Thanks, and the Game Cube suggestion for Christmas was right on.
