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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
