I'm looking to get a usb web camera for our conference room that is approx. 15' x 25'. The camera will be mounted on the wall and pointed down a conference room table that is approx. 15' long. I'm looking for easy setup and connectivity to USB on the PC that is in that conference room. i'm not looking for a conferencing unit (IE; polycom, tanberg etc). I'm looking to use this during Skype-type chat sessions. anyone have any suggestions? I'm checking out the huddlecams on this site: http://ptzwebcam.com/    They look like what I am after, but the only review that I have found on them were not flattering.

Thanks JC...I appreciate the input. I already have the conference phone portion worked out and I am now just focusing on the camera itself. I don't see a lot of places (outside the link I provided) that sell the cameras a la carte.
Well, this is cheap, but a friend of mine is very happy for Skype conferences, multi-user, good quality image with this one

I haven't pulled the trigger on this yet, but was hoping their would be more options out there for a full conference room. I appreciate the suggestions, but looks like those are for a small group, not a larger conference room.
