When all the videoconferencing equipment is turned on and the connections are made, the images that pop up on screen can be dark and unprofessional-looking, but don’t be so quick to blame the technology. Often, the view can be improved simply by addressing the lighting in the room. Navitar Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has a product that clears up the picture by dispelling shadows. Hi-Lite Videoconferencing Lighting fixtures plug into standard wall outlets and attach to drop ceilings with a twist clip. The Hi-Lite Master, with an infrared detector and remote control for dimming, includes a light box, three 39-watt 3500K bulbs, a diffusion lens, ceiling attachment kit and safety cable. The cost is $999. (800) 828-6778; www.navitar.com.
