Hello Experts.
I need advice on how to build a video conference with a low budget.  (around 5k)

I ran into this "All-in-one" system.
http://communication.aver.com/model/HVC330

Can someone give me some feedback on this device.

I'm also planing on getting an add-on for HVC330, VCBridge for Skype users, but I still don't know how many people can simultaneously connect.  It states 1, but I've heard that with system/SW updates it will be 4... some even say up to 8!!!  Don't know if that's true though.
Also I can't figure out if I can connect to it using my PC... o_0

Basically, I'm looking for something that can connect 2 sites, and connect people directly to the conference from their PC.

Thanx in advance!

I think you are looking at 2 different ways to accomplish one thing.

The system you link to is an all inclusive video conference system that is primarily meant to run independent of computers. It is proprietary and utilizing codecs that are commonly used in video conferencing, though not in services such as Skype or some popular desktop web conferencing products that include video capabilities, such as WebEx and GoToMeeting. The add on bridge I believe would connect the two, but when I see this kind of a setup I usually am left wondering why.

The web-conferencing solutions with included video conferencing offered by companies such as WebEx and GoToMeeting and Skype are so much more accessible from an end user standpoint, that in my opinion it is always the way to go nowadays. The exceptions to this are in cases of additional security measures, or existing within legacy phone systems and other more technical reasons.

If you are looking to connect people from their PC into the conference, then you are probably going to be best served by one of the options I have mentioned above over a proprietary video conference system.

The system linked looks like a good system, though I do not think it is best suited for the needs as you outlined them.
