    Q: Do I need any special equipment or service to use Beamer TV videophone?
    A: No special equipment or wiring is required. All each person needs is a home phone, a home phone (analog) line and a television (NTSC or PAL format) with a RCA jack. Analog phone lines are standard for almost all homes in the U.S. If you are unsure of what type of phone line you have, contact your local phone service provider. NTSC is the only television format in the US and almost all of today's televisions have RCA video jacks.
    Q: Is there any extra cost to the phone call when using Beamer TV videophone?

    A: Beamer TV is designed to pass the Caller ID information to the telephone connected to Beamer TV. Your Caller ID information will show up on your telephone, just as it would without Beamer TV.

    Q: What is the video quality?
    A: Similar to when you place a regular phone call, Beamer TV's video quality depends on a number of variables including the quality of the phone line connection.

If you have a normal or good phone line connection, you should see a clear, color motion video of the person you are calling, including details like changes in their facial expression.
