  • Introduction
  • Our Philosophy
  • Some of the technologies we are currently using or examining…
  • IP Video Conferencing and Integrated Voice Over IP Full screen, full motion video is delivered in software running on off-the-shelf desktop or laptop computers over existing data networks. Integrated Voice over IP Pure digital audio is offered near CD quality. Users can talk to Session enabled computers or other VoIP endpoints. ShareApp ShareApp lets users dynamically view and work together in virtually any third party application, from presentation tools to spreadsheets and word processors. Same software need not be installed on both machines. MediaSpace Supports a wide range of digital media including text, graphics, audio, video, or 3-D images. Actually manages separate instances of the same application running on distinct machines synchronously. Files currently must be QuickTime compatible
  • Apple Macintosh System Requirements Apple Macintosh G4 887 Mhz. processor 256 MB RAM Pyro® 1394 WebCam FireWire camera; or iRez® StealthFire or KritterCam camera; or OrangeMicro iBot® FireWire camera. Microphone and headset, or an echo-canceling microphone with external speakers. Apple OSX 10.1.5 Apple QuickTime version 6
  • Microsoft Windows System Requirements Intel® Pentium® III 800 Mhz. processor or Intel Celeron® 1.2 Ghz. Processor (Intel Pentium 4 processor recommended). 256 MB RAM (RDRAM recommended). One of the following video cards: NVIDIA TNT2® ProGraphics 16 MB PCI video card, NVIDIA GeForce2 MX video card, NVIDIA Vanta/VAnta LT video card, ATI Radeon® video card, or ATI All-in-Wonder video card. SoundBlaster® Live! PCI sound card. • Microphone and headset, or an echo-canceling microphone with external speakers. • Microsoft Windows® 2000 Professional w/ Service Pack 2; or Microsoft Windows XP Professional. • Apple QuickTime™ version 5. • Microsoft® DirectX 8.1 • A USB port, an ATI All-in-Wonder analog video card, or any IEEE 1394-compliant FireWire card
  • Answer: In many cases – YES!
  • USA Demo Lab Site
  • Typical View of Session Video Consult
