    I have been asked to come up with a solution for 6-way video conferencing for a business client and, unfortunately, iChat only supports up to 4-way conferencing.

    Anyone have any experience in this field? I will most likely recommend they buy the newest 21.5" iMac, so the hardware is the same.

    They have to use it for cross-country communication as well as between different countries and they guesstimate that 6-way video conferencing will comply with their needs.

    It somewhat depends on your needs (i.e. just see each other or do you want a whiteboard and other such tools)... one way to go is Adobe Connect Pro if you need the extra tools etc.

    Thanks for the response.

    Basically they need to have video + voice and the ability to share documents and view files in much the same way as iChat can. I suppose "whiteboard" is simply the same ability that iChat offers?

    It will most likely only be text and excel documents that needs to be shared and the occasional video.

    I was hoping there were a solution as "simple" as iChat in regards to form and function (as the people involved are far from tech-savvy) and Adobe Connect Pro seems fairly comprehensive from the looks of it.

    I hate to bump my own thread but there has to be something else, besides Adobe and iChat that works fairly easy?
