I'd appreciate if somebody could do a remote videoconference call with
me. If interested, please shoot me a private email.
I'd like to know how much bandwidth STX's max resolution consumes. It
apepars Pro 4000 supports much higher resolution, but i doubt 1280x920
would be feasible for 128Kbps or 384Kbps connection for instance. And my
primary other party might not have very high bandwidth. 

Thanks.
