Ideas from the Deep and
have released SquidCam 1.1, a new version of their video conferencing application for Mac OS X. The new version is no longer dependent on broadband connections, and sports new features too.

SquidCam is a video and audio conferencing application that doesn’t require users to subscribe to a special service. The software also features text messaging capabilities and with the 1.1 release, supports low-speed connections still dependent on dial-up access through modems, rather than high-speed broadband connectivity.
Also in SquidCam 1.1 is support for NetPhone — you can turn off video and use audio only. You can also tune down video to not saturate your connection, via “certified sends.”
Video Answering Machine (VAM) has been added to 1.1, enabling you to record a custom greeting at record calls from other users that include video, audio and text. Audio support is enhanced with support for two new compression codecs and five levels of quality. Custom video options have been added, including resolution selection, five levels of compression quality and three compression codec selections, including H.261 and H.263.
SquidCam costs US$25 per seat; bulk licensing is available. There are a bunch of other changes and enhancements, as well. Visit SquidSoft’s Web site for details. SquidCam 1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.1.3 or later, and TCP/IP.
