When I was teaching in the anatomy lab we always used a microscope with a
video camera attached, which relayed the microscope picture to a television
screen.  This allowed the whole class to see and discuss the slide image at
the same time.  We would like to get this same setup to use for data lab
meetings here.  Does anyone have any ideas on where to start looking for
these "systems".  We have several microscopes with video ports (most are
Olympus BH2 microscopes), so we should only need the video camera and
television.  Generally we want to show the slides to 10 or more people, and
a multiple head microscope being carried in and out of the conference room
is a bit too bulky.

I look forward to your ideas and recommendations.
