CNN/IDG: Videoconferencing MCU for Linux

“White Pine this week announced it is shipping a new version of
its multipoint conferencing unit software, MeetingPoint, for the
Red Hat Linux 6.1 platform.”

This marks the first time White Pine has ported its
software to the open source platform.
“Everything in
MeetingPoint is now available for Linux,” says Roger Wallman,
senior product manager for core technologies at White Pine. Wallman
also noted that there are new versions for Windows NT and Solaris,
which White Pine had supported previously.”

“Wallman says the decision to support Red Hat’s Linux flavor was
based largely on customer demand. He adds that it is possible to
port to other Linux versions, but that won’t happen unless there is
demand from White Pine’s customer base.”
