HP Introduces "SkyRoom" Business Videoconferencing

HP unveiled its "SkyRoom" high-definition videoconferencing software that offers live, real-time collaboration for instant face-to-face meetings with no subscription fees.


HP SkyRoom, which is based on video and image communication technology developed in HP Labs, offers real-time collaboration for up to four people over a standard business network for $149. It will be included as a standard feature -- at no cost -- on select HP business desktop and mobile workstations and for free for a trial period on many upcoming HP premium business PCs and notebooks. HP SkyRoom can be used on workstations or PCs from Dell, Lenovo or Sun that meet minimum technology requirements. Companies now have the power to change the economics of travel and reduce their carbon footprint while preserving the value of personal human interaction.


The company said the breakthrough innovation behind its SkyRoom comes from the combination of high-definition, multiuser videoconferencing and a sophisticated capability to share display information more securely than with actual transfer of data and processing functions. HP SkyRoom's video engine enables all participants to see the presenter's display and each other through a multiway videoconferencing session. The video engine is multithreaded to take advantage of the power of today's multiprocessor and multicore processing technologies.
