Assessing the complexity of delivering video over the Internet
On Aug 3, 1492... almost exactly 523 years ago to the day, Christopher Columbus left on a voyage that would ultimately lead to the discovery of America. His primary tool for navigation: a compass. His discovery, an accident. A mistake, really- he was trying to find a western sea route to China, India, and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia.
This historic serendipity would not have been possible without the compass, which led to arguably the most influential discovery. In history. Ever.
Today we’re pleased to announce Blue Jeans release 2.3. This update to the Blue Jeans service offers presenters an enriched content sharing experience with a sharing widget, Lync 2013 support and an enhanced video sharing experience.
Lately my commute to work has been hellacious. It may sound ridiculous but I often gauge the state of the economy in terms of traffic. When it’s heavy, it signifies people are working. The fact that I live in the Silicon Valley surely amplifies that theory. And, in California, it seems there is endless roadwork happening to make room for the slew of cars headed to Google and all the other internet companies in the Valley.
Hopefully you have had a great summer! Maybe you’ve traveled somewhere tropical, climbed Machu Picchu or camped along the beach. Whatever it is, hopefully you’ve enjoyed a little R&R! The Blue Jeans team enjoyed the summer by celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our service, the launch of Blue Jeans 2.0, the unveiling of a fun new company video and previewing a new video sharing feature.
At Blue Jeans we don’t rest much, we think it’s underrated. Aside from the occasional ping-pong or pool game, our engineering team is working hard to deliver the best video collaboration experience on the market. We’re passionate about adding cool new features and improving the user experience with each release. On Saturday, June 29h we released an update to the Blue Jeans service and we think you’ll like what you see!
