CES - Vault 360 seeks to make video conversion a snap

A new software product, Vault 360, can automatically convert video from one device to another, Bamboo Technology said at CES on Saturday.

Getting digital video from one device to another can be a hassle, but a Massachusetts software company thinks it has the answer.

Bamboo Technology's Vault 360 is capable of converting video, audio and pictures from one source to another. On its own that's not such a big deal, but Vault 360 contains profiles of many popular devices, so rather than choosing your intended format, you chose your intended device.

"As long as you as you can get it into your PC we can recognize that content and convert it for output onto any device," said Jim Adams, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Bamboo, during a presentation at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas Saturday.

To convert video users have to identify the original clip, choose an output device and click the start button. The software is available in two versions. "Vault 360" is compatible with Apple Computer's video iPod, Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation Portable (PSP) and Creative Technology's Zen Vision and costs US$30. Vault 360 Premium expands support to smart phones, multimedia players, portable digital assistants and other similar devices.

"We'll soon be out on Mac, I promise it will be out by mid-year this year," said Adams. "We've been asked to do that by lots of folks so we're going to deliver that and we're going to continue to add devices every week. Every week there will be new updates where we automatically add devices."

CES runs from Monday until Thursday.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
