|ESnet "Ad-hoc" H.323 videoconferencing (part of their "ECS" offering).
Please note that stations intending to make use of this service MUST
have previously registered as users, and been issued with their own
"E.164 address". Unregistered H.323 guest sites cannot be called.
If there's some prospect of you using the service
(check their AUP) then I'd recommend registering at your earliest
convenience, and verifying that your configuration works,
rather than waiting till the last minute and risking disruption of an
ongoing session. See
H.323 and videoconferencing at ESnet for the details.

|The previous PPNCG purchase recommendation for a group-sized
H.323 videoconferencing station is now effectively outdated.
For a personal hardware-based codec, the ViaVideo can be
software version 5.1 is a good working choice at this time.
The Polycom PVX software appears to be a good choice for a software codec, although the licensing arrangements are somewhat baroque.
Both of these work only with Windows OSes.
For a group-sized facility there is no current recommendation,
due to lack of time and resources to investigate. Sorry.
