That logo is a resource found and used directly inside the conf.exe file.
Microsoft to my knowledge has released no branding method for netmeeting.
You could use a resource editor/replacer to directly edit conf.exe and replace the bitmap, but this would not technically be legal as you would be modifying the executable without Microsoft's permission.

In case you are curious though, use something like Resource Hacker or PE Explorer, open up conf.exe, and you'll the find the bitmap under Bitmap 173

ok here is the issue, the solution we have is a one way video helpdesk.

The client sees the operator but the operator does not see the client. As a result the opertor screen only sees the netmeeting logo. Is it easy to remove the video part of the interface and leave the rest of the buttons?

Alternatively is it possible to run a loop of video in netmeeting for the operator to hide the netmeeting logo.

Hmm..I'm not sure if this would help in your situation or not, but it's worth a try.
On the operator's computers, go to Start  -> Run and type gpedit.msc.

Under User Configuration, right-click on Adminstrative Templates and hit Add/Remove Templates. Hit the Add button, select conf.adm, hit open, and then hit close.

Now you should have a Netmeeting tree under User Configuration|Adminstrative Templates|Windows Components.
In the Audo & Video section set "Prevent receiving Video" to enabled.

I'm not in a place where I can test this out, but in theory it should remove the operator's receive video window, but still leave them access to all the other Netmeeting functions.

Ahh, Home does not include the group policy editor unfortunately. You can set the policy directly in the registry however.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Conferencing]
"NoReceivingVideo"=dword:00000001
