PowerBoost for iChat AV

Ecamm Network has released , a new shareware add-on for iChat AV 3 that makes multi-party conferences possible from any Mac. Apple's website says that iChat AV 3 by default requires a dual 1GHz G4 machine or any G5-based Mac to initiate a 4-person video conference and either a 1GHz G4-, dual 800GHz G4-, or G5-based Mac to participate in a multi-party video conference. PowerBoost allows users to use any G4-based Mac to both participate in and initiate multi-party video conferences. "Harness and focus the power of your G4 processor to bring your family and friends together. Invite up to 10 iChat users to an audio conference. Host a 3-way or 4-way video chat." The software features a visual display monitor of the available processing power on each Mac. PowerBoost is available as a seven-day demo. Registration is $8.
