hi Chris.

our conference room node is running on an InSORS cube.  we currently have
both AG 2.1.2 w/InSORS plugin and AG 2.3 'pure' co-existing.
we run both ...not at the same time, though ;^)
AG 2.3 correctly handles the Winnov Vidium 4400.
inSORS doesn't prevent you from running shared apps.  InSORS builds in
some high-level tools (e.g., serial camera control interface) that are nice.
there are some feature differences between InSORS enabled and pure AG app.
