Everybody wants to do desktop video. Apparently Sony and AOL are ready to jump in now, too. All this to be there before Skype brings a video solution to market.
I don’t understand the fuss. Desktop video just isn’t that compelling. To get a good picture you need to:
Wear the right clothing. Makeup too, if you’re female.
Be lit properly (do you have a video studio in your office?).
Have the camera positioned properly (have you ever noticed how desktop video invariably shows the other person’s forehead, and not much else –> that’s because the camera is on top of the monitor!).
