I'm curious -- wouldn't it be practical, for a small site
that couldn't afford a Gentner, just to do away with ambient
microphones and equip all meeting participants with 
low-gain headset mikes?  It'd be a little clunky, but
probably not too uncomfortable if the participants
didn't move around too much, so their wires wouldn't
get tangled.
