I am already regretting identifying myself as the designated IT person, don't worry about that... but the fact is that setting up a decent-ish camera will benefit me too if i need to do a web conference or web court hearing and don't want to use my desk setup (e.g. if i have to do it with clients in the room). the other desire relates to the fact that i want a relatively simple USB-style camera because there will inevitably be a boffin who wants to hook the camera up to their own laptop and not use the mini PC. Any other options than the Panacast for around the $1k mark? I have found the ceiling of what the office managers are willing to spend. EDIT - the fact that they spend many many thousands of dollars on the Webex Kit and it apparently never got used suggests that I think they will be happy with whatever i set up, so long as it works.
