Video conference multiple webcams on one computer

I need to find a solution that will allow me to host a video conference and display 3 different webcams all connected to one computer.  One camera will be pointing at the presenter, and the other two at the audience.  I don't want to have to connect each webcam to a separate computer and log in three different users who are sitting in the same room.  I've already spoken with Webex and they cannot do this.  Does anyone know of a video conferencing solution that can?

There is a product called MultiCam http://users.dickinson.edu/~jmac/multicam/ that works with Skype that may fit what you are asking for.

I saw that, and I guess I should have been more specific.  I need something that will allow users in three other offices to also connect to the conference.  MultiCam only works for two-party conversations, not conference calls.

I can't get into the room where ours is set up this week because of auditors using the room so I can't check it. We are currently using ePop from http://www.nefsis.com/. I don't think that it has the ability you are asking for though. Their new product might.

I've contacted Nefsis and they don't have a product that will, but also told me they don't think it's possible to do this because of the way Windows works with the capture card.  In that case, I'm not entirely sure how MultiCam can do what it does, but either way it doesn't appear that I'm going to find a product that fits my needs.  Will have to workaround it somehow.

Maybe contact OpenEye and see if they have any suggestions.  They are a video security system but may have some idea.
