Have you though about using both Macs on an Ethernet connection?
Especially with a good external camera for folks to see themselves in.
That alwasy draws a crowd. It is unlikely (due to the way the phone lines

than 38.4 throughput on the phone lines, so no decent audio. People will
still love the video tho!
