Do I need specialized equipment for telepsychiatry?

In order to implement telepsychiatry, you need only a solid internet connection (DSL, cable, T1 or higher) and a device capable of videoconferencing. While a laptop or PC with a good web camera and microphone are preferable, a tablet or even a smartphone can work in a pinch for teleconferencing.

No specialized media equipment is necessary, although you can certainly set up a conference room for ideal communications with a larger group of people.
