I'm going to need to set up video conferencing between Hawaii and Seattle for a small business.
They would like to use a mounted TV to do the video conferencing. It will be one TV to one TV communication.
One option would be to go with Polycom's HDX 6000 series telepresence solutions. I think this device needs a server like Microsoft Lync.
They don't seem to list their prices on Polycom but a google search says the hardware costs about $5000. Lync standard editon costs $699. Total cost for two Polycom's and one Lync server: $10,699
This would be secure, HD, and would offer more features than we need.
Another option would be to use Skype enabled TV's or blu-ray players, which would cost a total of $600 for two sets.
Is the obvious answer to use Skype? Am I missing anything?
