Thank you, Tom.

USM wants to use 1 camera to point to the professor, another camera to point
on the white board that he writes on, another camera for pictures or slides
that he may have, and another camera to point to the students at USM.  So
there will be no desktop sharing on the computer at USM.

hi Supreeya
You can use VNC to shared a 1024x768 desktop
which can include a white board...
