Nope.

Neither the Cornell or White Pine reflectors do any translation of the data
that they forward to/from clients. At least not yet. :-)

What we've done in the past is to setup 2 conferences, one on conference 0
with a B&W feed, and one on conference 1 with a Color feed. Most Cornell
client users will connect to conference 0 by default, and ECU clients will get
the conference list which will let them know the differences between the
conferences.

This requires that you send 2 feeds to the reflector, which means you need 2
PC's or MAC's, or one of each, of course.
