Jay BeaversORG Microsoft Research Title BIO Jay Beavers has spent the last three years looking at how to apply leading edge technologies to the problem of creating an effective, interactive collaboration and distance learning environment. The initial result of this research is the ConferenceXP project, a high-quality multipoint video conferencing system build using standard PCs, the Internet2, and Windows XP. This project started trial deployment at the University of Washington in Spring 2002, and will culminated in a five-location graduate CS class in 2003. Mr. Beavers also worked at Microsoft Consulting in Media and Telecommunications, implementing the first metered Internet connectivity, and an innovative digital TV system based on MPEG-1 and PC set-top boxes.
