Quicktime Conferencing ISDN Kit: Photos

I'd been curious about this thing for a while but could't find photos anywhere, though I finally tracked one down.

 

This should work alongside the KWM-A102A, which has been called "QuickTime Video Conferencing Camera 100" or "VideoPhone Kit." Sold together, they may have been called the "Pro Conferencing Kit."

The cameras are still circulating a bit more commonly so there are plenty of photos around. I can take some of mine if you have interest.

 

I'll image the floppies and PDF the booklets down the line.

I was hoping the headset would have an Apple logo on it. :)

 

Are any of those Motorola chips 68000s?  Might support A/ROSE.

Me too. Similarly generic looking as the camera, though at least the sticker on the bottom of the camera looks official. That handset could be from anything.

 

The big one on the left is an MC68302FC16C, which is/contains a 68000 core. Don't know too much about it though it may integrate with A/ROSE. The three on the left are all DSPs, XC56156FE50.

Oh gosh, this is super neat, thank you for these photos!

 

Getting one or two of these working would be super fun. There's a couple PBX systems that have ISDN connectivity but it's my understanding that the ISDN line cards aren't super cheap.

Probably not. In addition to whatever DSP hardware is needed to connect the handset to the ISDN line this is basically a modem and to my recollection that's how the Mac treats it (other than being able to dial the phone component and make/receive collab/multimedia calls.)

Glad I can help fill this void in documentation! :)

 

I'd love to see a pair of these connected on a conference call. Would the PBX systems you refer to be able to pass the ISDN traffic through modern broadband, or is additional telecom service still necessary on top of hardware?

Very nice, looking forward to developments ans docs.

 

It's interesting that an expansion card from that era would still list a hard drive as a requirement? At some point available disk space became a commonly listed requirement.
