Personally, I liked the Presenter which connects a computer to a TV via
cable/modulator device.  I used it with a large screen color TV (26" or better)
any time that I did large group demonstrations.   It was excellent and is
with sound options (using your TV speakers) for   The Presenter is available via
Educational Resources (largest eduational computer software outfit around)
located in Illinois, call  800-624-2926) and the cost was about $475.00.  

Also, here is a new COLOR Connectix camera available now for use with CU-SeeMe
for about $285.00 (again, this is from memory).  The Enhanced CU-SeeMe
version is able to utilize the color camera.
