Talking Video conference implementation for business

I am looking for video conference software and hardware for my startup business. I would like to have the following features, in descending order of importance:

  1. Open Source software and Open communication protocols, if possible.
  2. Compatible with Windows users on the other end.
  3. Secure (encrypted) communication.
  4. Possibility to record the conference.
  5. Best possible space and time definition.
  6. Reliable (if possible, 0 downtime, 0 interruptions)

One possible first candidate would be this, but I'm sure there is more to VoIP than meets the eye.

I would also appreciate some pointers about protocols to use, importance of servers (or lack thereof) and finally the right hardware to purchase (including mass storage and storage format).

I know it's a lot I'm asking for on this little post. However, my experience in this community has always been encouraging.

Thanks in advance.

My first thought is to VNC (numerous clients and servers). FogCreek software ( built a support tool based on VNC that may prove beneficial called CoPilot.

Another option that may be worth looking into is called VSee (

hope you find what you're looking for (and tell the rest of us ),
