Christie Digital is also creating specialized visual collaboration capabilities by combining the Magor solutions with their own digital projectors and Christie Spyder video processors to create large screen visualization environments.

This was an impressive win for Magor as Christie is a sophisticated customer with deep industry knowledge.   Ashish Kudsia, Christie's IT Director provided the reasoning in a statement:"Providing our global offices with an easy to use, rich visual collaboration experience that speeds and enhances decision making and raises productivity was a key priority for us.  After evaluating our options, the Magor TeleCollaboration system stood out for its flexible peer-to-peer architecture, which allows us to bring subject matter experts and critical information into visual collaboration meetings on an ad-hoc, as needed basis. In addition to reducing travel costs, deploying the Magor TeleCollaboration solutions in combination with Christie's own world-class projection and video processing products has improved our day-to-day business operations and increased our overall efficiency." 


Improved Data Collaboration Capabilities for Mobile Users with HTML5 / Canvas
Magor's new HDShare is a leveraging HTML5/Canvas for presentation of rich media content via any browser.  It works with nearly every mobile device, including iPhone, iPad, Blackberry Torch, HTC Android, Galaxy Tablet, etc.  Additionally, it allows access to any collaboration
windows available within a Magor TeleCollaboration session.
Magor also announced future enhancements for mobile workers in Q2 2011:

  • Unicast streaming of any video stream within a Magor TeleCollaboration session. With this development, mobile workers will be able to select which video streams they want to watch during a visual collaboration session, in addition to the shared collaboration materials.

  • Point-to-point, two-way video calling from any smartphone, tablet, desktop PC or laptop that has a Skype video client to a Magor endpoint. With this enhancement, mobile workers will be able to show themselves to other participants in a session or point their cameras at something that others need to see.

Increased Support for Desktop Virtualization
To support the growing need to access remote desktops from the growing number of mobile platforms including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, and laptops, Magor has announced extended support of desktop virtualization resources. In addition to PC, Mac, Solaris and Unix-based resources, Magor now supports Linux-based Citrix and VMware virtual desktop clients natively on any Magor TeleCollaboration endpoint, therefore enabling participants in a visual collaboration session to access and share a wider range of virtual desktops.
