High-Speed Collaboration

Dec. 9, 2004
HP Remote Graphics, interactive 3D graphics software, lets users work closely with remote teams in a manner that eliminates upgrading to expensive 3D graphics cards on each user's machine.

The software runs on workstations, notebooks, commercial desktop PCs, and with high visual-image quality. The software provides an alternative to high-bandwidth-consuming programs for companies with spread out operations. It also removes the 2D collaboration limitation of alternatives by letting users work with large 3D models. The software uses proprietary compression and decompression methods for crossregional collaboration and sharing on graphics-intensive projects over a standard network connection with minimal lag time between sender and receivers. A few capabilities include workplace collaboration, and classroom learning that lets instructors tutor and receive input from students in real time. The software also enables remote IT support as well as sales demonstrations. Price: $399 for a sender-receiver license and $99/additional receiver.
