"This web page started as a list of available desktop videoconferencing products. It has evolved into a collection of interesting information related to desktop videoconferencing. There are numerous desktop videoconferencing products available. By our definition, "desktop videoconferencing" products are applications that can be used on standard desktop computer systems such as an Intel-based PC, Apple Macintosh, or Unix workstation.

H.324 is a new standard that provides a foundation for interoperability and high quality video, voice and data based phone calls. This standard has been recently adopted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The H.324 standard specifies a common method for video, voice and data to be shared simultaneously over high speed modem connections. H.324 is the first standard to specify interoperability over a single analog line. This means that the next generation of video phone products will be able to talk to one another and provide a foundation for market growth
