London, England--April 28, 1997--Data Connection Ltd. (DCL; London, England) announced that its DC-Share for Unix products is now packaged with a pre-integrated International Telecommunications Union (ITU) T.120 MCS/GCC multipoint communications stack. This means that DC-Share for Unix is the first Unix application sharing product to interoperate with Microsoft NetMeeting 2.0.
Products incorporating DC-Share for Unix (www.datcon.co.uk/docs/dcshare.htm) allow Unix workstation users to participate in T.120 multipoint data conferences with users of Microsoft NetMeeting 2.0 (www.microsoft.com/netmeeting/), and enable them to view and control applications shared from Windows on Unix workstations for real-time collaboration over the Internet or corporate intranet. Application sharing from NetMeeting does not require any changes to be made to the application being shared, so it will work with most Windows-based applications.
The DC-Share application sharing technology is based on that incorporated within NetMeeting and implements the recently approved ITU T.128 application sharing standard (formerly known as T.SHARE). The addition of pre-integrated MCS/GCC (T.122, T.123, T.124, and T.125) within a fully packaged product means that DC-Share for Unix now provides a large subset of the T.120 conferencing standards suite. For Unix workstation vendors, the pre-integration of MCS/GCC reduces the development cost of integrating DC-Share for Unix within their conferencing products and also decreases the time to market. For large corporate end-users, it means that they can immediately deploy DC-Share for Unix within their intranets to provide Unix T.120 data conferencing interoperable with Microsoft NetMeeting.
DC-Share for Unix runs on all major Unix platforms (including HP/UX, SGI, and Sun/Solaris) and is available for licensing to Unix workstation vendors for incorporation in a range of general purpose and industry specific conferencing applications. It is also available directly to large corporate end-users via bulk seat, site, and/or corporate licenses.
