oh!, very good graphics. These solve enough of my doubts about "practices". Very thanks Enrico.
Well, according to H323 graphic, it will be necessary to establish N to (N-1) channels on each speaker ... or it seems. In any case I must to read about H323 a Mega-bit more ... ;-))
I suppose today someone must have solved this problem and it must exist some solution ... and open solution ;-)
I hope ...
