"It's important to note that having a camera installed is not a requirement for using the Wimba Classroom. Anyone capable of passing all the tests in the Wizard will be able to view video broadcasts from those who have cameras installed. However, if you would like to broadcast video from your location, you will need to have a camera installed. Below, you'll find a list of cameras which have been tested for Wimba Classroom.
The number of cameras available for consumers is very lengthy so we've identified a select number of popular cameras and tested them for use with multi-way video in the Wimba Classroom. Although you may have a camera which is not on the recommended list below, it does not mean that it will not work with Wimba Classroom.
