LiveMeeting presentation tools

I just finished delivering the last of the modules of 6461A: Visual Studio 2008: Windows Communication Foundation, through a mix of on-premises and distance delivery, for a group of roughly 30 people. All that’s left is a little wrap up. Previously on Windows Vista I’ve had my A2DP bluetooth headset working, but I just simply couldn’t get that to work on Windows 7. So I got a new toy, the LifeChat ZX-600.

I can recommend it for delivering LiveMeetings or Webcasts. The sound quality is good, the device is unobtrusive allowing movement (which is a problem with a non-portable microphone) and it works nicely for Windows 7 although the product info page doesn’t explicitly say so.

I use it together with my Presenter Mouse 8000 (which also works perfectly both on Windows 7 without its co-delivered USB transmitter) as the hardware part of the tools I use when delivering courses as an MCT or otherwise.
