Historic Photos: Skype - not so new

A video screen was attached to the workstation and the user dialled the other participants for a long-distance conference on a device like a push-button phone. Their voice activated the picture on all the screens.

Each workstation cost £12,000. Identifier: CW-TELECONF-001
