All this talk about video on the Zune is exciting. There are lots of new DVD to Zune converters and software applications for working with video on Zune. Recently I noticed that TANDBERGÂ® , a global leader in visual communication, has enabled Zune-optimized content creation through the TANDBERG Content Server, the company’s WindowsÂ®-based streaming and archiving solution.
What this means for Zune owners using their Content Server is that any standards-based videoconference can be instantly recorded and optimized for Microsoft Zune download and playback without any additional configuration. The video conferencing market is growing fast and for others in the industry there is a big push to grab as much of the video conferencing business as they can get.
LifeSize Roomâ„¢ is the high definition video communications system that combines exceptional quality and user simplicity to make remote communications a productive, true-to-life experience. The fully integrated system connects to most displays in any size conference room and provides crystal clear video clarity and high fidelity audio for productive conferencing. LifeSize Room includes embedded 4-way HD multipoint capabilities to connect several participants.
Companies like LifeSize and Tandberg are developing Video Conferencing Equipment and services that will bring business to anyone in anyplace and hardware like our Zune players need to be prepared for the wireless age at our doorstep. Articles in todays news show an explosion in wireless growth in 2006 and that trend is not expected to slow down any time soon.
Demand for microchips that help laptops, video game consoles and other gadgets connect wirelessly to the internet pushed higher in 2006, a trade group said on Monday.
I’m glad MAX is future proof and ready for the wireless age. I hope they do some great things with the Zune players and we get lots more wireless video content from a variety of sources. Hopefully some day soon we’ll have video blogging and video conferencing of our video zunecasts and more.
