PlayerLync launched the first tablet-based automatic video and document content delivery, control, and collaboration platform for enterprise workgroups. The new PlayerLync Enterprise Edition eliminates video streaming and high-speed connections by pushing content to be stored directly on tablets for native offline access.

SMART Technologies Inc., a global provider of visual collaboration solutions, launched SMART kapp, a digital capture board. SMART kapp users write, draw, diagram, and brainstorm using an ink marker, just as they would with a dry-erase board. But with SMART kapp, co-workers and clients can follow the process in realtime on their digital devices. The work is saved with SMART’s software and then as a final product as PDF or JPEG files that can be shared with anyone, anywhere, instantly.

NewTek unveiled TriCaster Mini, a compact multimedia studio. The ultra-portable system allows anyone who doesn’t speak or understand the technical language of video production or broadcasting to transform an ordinary presentation into engaging multimedia content that looks like network-style TV in a matter of minutes.

Cisco announced the launch of Cisco Modeling Labs, which enable network engineers to build, design, and launch accurate real-world simulations of multi-vendor devices in a virtual environment, without connecting a single cable.
