HP Skyroom: Power & Simplicity for Remote Workgroup Tasks

HP Skyroom: Power & Simplicity for Remote Workgroup Tasks

In this article, Ron Lindeboom looks at the powerful HP Skyroom technology, which allows team members to interact in high definition video with one another, as they work on projects and approvals remotely. Highly powerful, yet priced within reach of many small to medium-sized companies -- nevertheless, the system is powerful enough for even major players like Dreamworks Animation, who used the system during the making of the blockbuster 'Monsters vs Aliens.' Powerful, elegant, simple to use.

Jerry Hofmann reviews: The Sorenson Squeeze 4 Compression Suite

In this article, Jerry Hofmann reviews the Sorenson Squeeze 4 Compression Suite. "If you've read my reviews before about Sorenson's efforts in the Mac World, you'll know I've long been a fan of the company's products. The ALL NEW version of Sorenson Compression suite 4 is shipping now, and is by far the company's best effort to date, and I've been running the Squeeze 3 version, and have always found it easy to use, but this new version really takes the cake. Sporting a much beefier interface, Sorenson's new release adds new support for HD, including Apple's own recent codec, H.264. This is just the beginning however."
