H.323 is the standard that enables audio, video and data communications across IP-based networks, of which the Internet is the largest. The driving force behind this International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standard is to provide the before mentioned services with products from any mix of vendors without concern for compatibility. These products may be hardware or software. Of primary concern in this paper is the integration of products such as desktop cameras and microphones with applications such as Microsoft’s NetMeeting to facilitate distance education. Several aspects that are usually not clear to the new user with such implementations are the techniques for connecting multiple users, getting the data through firewalls and making the most of available bandwidth, all of which this paper discusses. This paper will also present the user with several implementation options for two-way video desktop conferencing over the Internet using hardware devices such as Coders/Decoders (CODECS), software applications such as NetMeeting and conferencing sites such as Internet Locator Servers (ILS servers).
