Here's a couple of places that are offering CCD cameras suitable for
CUSEEME, ProShare, Apple's Video Conferencing software, etc.

BG Micro
(214) 271-5546

They offer a CCD camera (with case and power supply) for $89.00

SuperCircuits
1-800-335-9777

They sell a range of CCD cameras, transmitters and other neat stuff.

Someone on the list had mentioned that they were getting good results
by surrounding the CCD camera with an array of IR LEDs for illumination,
since CCD cameras tend to work well with IR frequencies. This allows you
to use the camera in dim light situations -- such as my office.
