I got some cool news from Microsoft Portrait:

Hi Arne,

Microsoft Portrait for Pocket PC and Handheld PC 1.2 was released on April 5.

Microsoft Portrait enables full mobile video conferencing on Pocket PCs and Handheld PCs for the first time in the world. This means with Microsoft Portrait, a Pocket PC or Handheld PC can not only display received video but also capture and send video in real-time.

Hardware requirements include a Pocket PC or Handheld PC with a network connection and an HP Jornada pocket camera. iPAQ users may need a dual-slot PC card expansion pack for the installation of both an HP Jornada pocket camera and a network or phone card.

Microsoft Portrait is a research prototype for mobile video conferencing. It supports MSN Messenger and Internet Locator Service (ILS) on PCs, Pocket PCs and Handheld PCs. It runs on local area networks, dialup networks and even wireless networks with bandwidths as low as 9.6 kilobits/second. Microsoft Portrait uses portrait-like video that always delivers the most important information in a video for a given bandwidth. In low bandwidths, portrait video possesses clearer shape, smoother motion, shorter latency and much cheaper computational cost than do conventional video technologies. Microsoft Portrait provides basic chat/voice/video functions almost anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Best regards Jiang
