TPO News Pro Tip: Using Cloud VC for Team Presentations

April 23, 2014 | David S. Maldow, Esq.

Desktop recording isn't rocket science. Your PC or laptop probably already has software installed with your webcam which can make simple recordings. But what if you want to co-present with other team members? Many of today's cloud videoconferencing services offer recording. Simply start a normal video meeting, turn on the recording feature, and start your presentation. When you are done you can just send it "as is" to YouTube, or use readily available editing software to add a few effects, as we have done with this sample.

Solution Snapshot: Magor Aerus

April 18, 2014 | Telepresence Options

Magor

Magor's mission is, and has always been to inspire users to interact with video in new ways to create improved modes for productivity.

Bringing this goal to life called for a different architectural approach that removes the limitations of traditional single-workflow video conferencing systems - one with the flexibility to adapt to different workflows as users move from one task to another.

The development of a completely new user-centric platform has provided us the freedom to rethink traditional strategies for scalability, interoperability, security and information sharing- resulting in significant technical benefits for deployment and support.

LiftEye replaces elevator walls with synced 3D view of world outside

April 7, 2014 | Telepresence Options

Lifteye

Story and images by Sydney Brownstone / Co.Exist

Unless someone comes up with a better way for groups of people to move vertically within tall buildings (pneumatic tubes, anyone?), elevators are here to stay in our rapidly urbanizing world. This alone is a testament to human adaptability, because elevators, when you really stop to think about them, are terrifying.

But maybe the elevator experience doesn't have to land somewhere on a spectrum among awkward, mind-numbingly dull, and panicky. Lifteye, a startup out of Russia's St. Petersburg State University, has developed a technology that breaks through the elevator's fourth wall, and exposes passengers to a panoramic view of what's outside the building.

Story and images by Dean Takahashi / Venture Beat

I was alone in a room wearing virtual reality goggles. But it felt like I was in a park, surrounded by four Shaolin monks who were threatening me on all sides with martial arts moves. This kind of surround-video experience is what you'll get from Jaunt, a new entertainment startup coming out of stealth today.

ConFuzed about the New Fuze? TPO Talks to CEO David Obrand

April 2, 2014 | David S. Maldow, Esq.

Fuze

Fuze rebrands and refocuses on addressing what is missing from today's visual collaboration offerings.

Today Fuzebox became Fuze, and shared a few related announcements. We were lucky enough to chat with CEO David Obrand (known for previous success at Salesforce and Yammer), who gave us the inside scoop on the specific announcements, as well as some related Fuze developments. It was very interesting to see how he has guided Fuze's development based on similar principles that worked so well at Yammer and SF (for example, see the discussion on Analytics, below). Let's start off by diving into the announcement itself.
