Microsoft Roundtable-21st Century Video Conferencing


This thing is awesome! It came out of the MS Research team a few years back and now it’s been re-designed and is better than ever!

It’s a video conferencing device with some really neat features. It’s got a 360° camera and it tracks the active speaker, so you can move with the flow of conversation.

It’s got a lot of people excited here at Bechtle & we can’t stop selling them, so it’s clearly got users excited too!

Funky looking and useful

Also, a lot of people criticise Microsoft for not being innovative and original, but this is one of the freshest things I’ve seen for a long time…I say “way to go MS”!

If you’re looking for a way to improve long distance meetings and/or save on fuel costs and reduce your carbon footprint, this is a great way to go about it 😉

Intro


Welcome, Acceptus…or Ahoy Hoy if you prefer.

This blog is primarily going to contain info on happenings in the world of software-with a particular focus on the company we all love to love..Microsoft.

This could be new products, updates, downloads, trials, changes, rumours or any combination thereof….plus I’ll throw in some pretty much un-related stuff…just to keep you on your toes 🙂

There’s a lot of info floating around the InterWebs and sometimes it can be hard to keep track of. Hopefully these ruminations will help make it all a little easier.

I’m more than happy to hear comments, thoughts, suggestions etc so please….comment away!
