Recently, bandwidth has become cheaper, and vendors have found clever ways to compress video transmissions so they do not require wide pipes. Consequently, a videoconferencing session now fits in a few hundred Kbps (something most businesses have at their disposal) rather than the multiples Mbps of bandwidth that were required in the past.

While companies may have previously been interested in videoconferencing technology, many did not want the hassles that come with deploying and managing the videoconferencing infrastructure. Enter cloud-based services, offering SMBs a wide range of videoconferencing options.

On the low end are companies like ooVoo, Skype, Vidyo, and Vivu, whose services can be free. Vendors such as AT&T, BT, Cisco, and Verizon are pushing more sophisticated conferences, which cost about $10 to $50 per user, per month.

HP has partnered with Hynix Semiconductor in developing and manufacturing a new form of computer memory. The joint development agreement has the two companies working together to bring an HP-developed memristor to market in the form of a future memory product called Resistive Random Access Memory, or ReRAM. A memristor is a circuit element within the memory chip.

The ReRAM is non-volatile memory with lower power consumption and much greater storage capacity than Flash used in mobile phones and MP3 players today. The technology also has the potential of becoming a replacement for hard drives and DRAM system memory used in computers today.

HP believes devices incorporating memristor-based chips could hit the market in five years. Such devices would include handheld gadgets offering 10 times greater embedded memory than exists today. In addition, supercomputers could be made "dramatically faster" than what's predicted in Moore's law.

The Casio EX-H20G is the latest offering in the company's EXILIM hi-zoom line and provides ultra-precise location data for the geotagging of photos and video, including being the first camera to be able to geotag indoors, according to Casio.

The EX-H20G is outfitted with a 24mm, wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens. But the differentiating feature is its beefed up geotagging capabilities. Rather than display only GPS coordinates of the user, the EX-H20G can display the photographer's current location, as well as geotagged photos and videos, on a map that's displayed on the 14-megapixel camera's 3-inch LCD screen. In addition, the camera is preloaded with information on 10,000 sightseeing photo spots around the world and automatically alerts users when they are near a point-of-interest.




The 2.5-inch portable storage device can store up to 60 high-definition movies, 750 video games, or thousands of photos.

The Panasonic Lumix GH2 compact DSLR camera that fits in the palm of a person's hand and supports the company's interchangeable 3D lens. In addition, the Lumix GH2 can record full high-definition 1080p video, and can shoot still images at maximum resolution at 5 frames per second. The 16-megapixel camera has an HDMI output for showing video or images on an HDTV. The GH2, like its predecessor the GH1, is what Panasonic calls a digital single lens micro, which is basically a compact camera for digital single-lens reflex photography. A DSLR camera, favored by professionals, supports interchangeable lenses and uses a mechanical mirror system and five-sided prism to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder in the back of the camera.

The Lumix GH2 is scheduled to be available in black and silver in early December. Prices will start at $900 for only the camera body. Body/lens kits will be available for $1,000 and $1,500.
