hey guys,

I am implementing a video conference setup in my home office that needs to connect with the parent office in Lugano, Switzerland. I am going to be using IP based calls to connect to save money but they use ISDN hardware for communications. Are there any providers out there that can be used as mediators for these types of calls? I have looked into GlowPoint but they were very expensive. I just need someone who will provide us the ability to conenct since we are using two different platfoms of communication.

People use ISDN for video conferencing because it is fast.  None the less their setup should also be capable of IP conferencing in addition to ISDN, especially if your home setup will be a simple webcam affair and doesn't need the high quality of a professional web conference system.  I forget the details, but we used to do the same thing, we took our ISDN web conference system and used it over IP because the ISDN lines cost too much.

Well we are setting up a professional video conference with two 50" palsmas and a sony HD setup for this. I just had the parent companies old equipment upgraded via telnet to accept IP based calls however I know there will be no QOS so thats why im looking for a middle man to host calls so we get the best quality possible.

Ah, that is beyond me then.  I do know that when we endeavored to do high quality conferencing over the Internet via T1 (6 years ago), the lag was horrible if you were used to multiple ISDN lines.
