White Pine Software, Inc announced it has received Popular Science Magazine's "Best of What's New" award in the category of "Computers and Electronics" for its Enhanced CU-SeeMe videoconferencing software. One-hundred high-tech products and scientific breakthroughs--deemed the "Best of What's New" for 1996 by the editors of Popular Science Magazine--were announced this week during a ceremony at the Tavern-on-the-Green in New York City.
"The main criterion for an invention or discovery is how it made a difference in our lives," said Fred Abatemarco, editor-in-chief for Popular Science Magazine. "Our editors had to ask themselves, `Why is this product unique?', `Why does this represent an important step forward?' and `What is its beneficial impact on society?' Once, only large companies could afford videoconferencing. Now videoconferences have become inexpensive, whether around the office or around the world."
Forrest Milkowski, Director of Product Management at White Pine Software, stated, "We are honored to receive this prestigious award. White Pine is committed to making our products the best they can be, as well as innovative and easy to use. Bringing the technology of videoconferencing to every desktop is a big step into the future of communications and the Internet. We will continue to seek to make Enhanced CU-SeeMe a technology leader in the videoconferencing market for both consumer and business users. This award demonstrates our progress in meeting this objective."
The "Best of What's New" is the cover story for Popular Science's December issue, on newsstands now. The December issue has been a best-seller since the "Best of What's New" awards began in 1988. Popular Science, the magazine for technology minded consumers, is published 12 times a year by Times Mirror Magazines.
