The HP DeskJet 350 mobile printer from Hewlett-Packard offers educators a balance of features including fast operation, good print quality, compact size, low weight, rugged design and support for major operating systems. Its ink cartridges can withstand extreme temperatures and altitude changes without leaking, and can generate up to 485 pages of black text and 155 pages of color.

Producing up to 5 ppm (pages per minute) in black and 2 ppm in color, the printer offers speed and quality. Black text printing is at a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi, and color images are at 600 x 300 dpi. HP ColorSmart II technology optimizes color images to generate vivid output. Exclusive HP smart software includes LaserJet margin emulation for documents that have been formatted for HP's LaserJet printers. A special photocopy/fax print mode is also available for generating documents optimized for copying and faxing.

The printer's built-in NiMH battery charges in one hour and 40 minutes with no memory effect. This can power the printing of 130 pages of black text in normal mode. An IrDA-compliant infrared adapter is available for wireless use, and the printer also features a 30-page sheet feeder for convenient, hands-free operation.

Mitsubishi Electronics America's new, low-cost 17" DIAMONDTRON NF desktop color monitor, the Diamond Plus 73, features a patented, state-of-the-art, flat-faced CRT. Natural Flat technology produces natural-looking flat images that mirror traditional pen and paper imagery. A calculated polynomial curve has been applied to the internal screen surface and aperture grille that basically pre-distorts the image, compensating for the concave effect. This, coupled with a redesigned S-NX DBF electron gun for reduced spot size and screen focus uniformity, and improved deflection yoke technology for better beam landing, provides a flat, sharp and bright image.

The flat-screen monitor significantly reduces the effects of ambient lighting, cutting external reflection and glare. It also employs a self-convergence system that eliminates compromised corner focus, resulting in better screen performance. To achieve the natural flat screen effect, a proprietary glass system has been added to the unit. Although the flat-faced monitor technology uses more glass than a standard cylindrical CRT, the weight of the unit does not increase. Mitsubishi Electronics America, Cypress, CA, (800) 843-2515,

A wireless, portable computer lab for the classroom, Toshiba's Simply Mobile gives students the ability to use their notebook computers anytime, anywhere on campus without the need for an electrical connection. In addition, there are no extra wires needed for Internet/intranet access. Students can access the school's network connection wirelessly. Since a dedicated classroom is not required, the solution frees schools from traditional space-consuming desktop-based computer labs.

Simply Mobile ships with 15 Toshiba notebook computers, extra batteries and battery chargers, a wireless access point and 15 PCM-CIA wireless network cards. The cart, designed by Bretford, is fully wired and ready for use. Toshiba also offers a non-wired version for schools intending to use the cart for secure storage only.

Macsense has introduced iParrot, a speech recognition headset for the Mac. Ideal for Mac-outfitted computer labs, its patent-pending "translator" provides superior noise canceling for speech recognition even in the noisiest environments. The translator is built directly into the headset, providing good audio reception by canceling unwanted background noise. This is a definite plus for voice recognition software, where distorted noises can result in increased errors.

Available for an estimated cost of $49.99, iParrot can be used with voice recognition software such as IBM's Viavoice and MacSpeech, for Mac OS commands, for security applications like voice print security for Mac OS9, and for telephony applications like voiceover IP.

A complete encoding, authoring and editing solution, VITEC Multimedia's DCM is a combination of a DVD toolbox software and a PCI card featuring the new VM2000 proprietary chip. The new card provides high-quality, low-cost, real-time MPEG-2 encoding and decoding using the new VM2000 chip. It uses an encoder chip with a hybrid hardware/software architecture that allows the product to utilize the improvements of Pentium processing speeds. The VM2000 acts as a specialized coprocessor of the Pentium.

For adapting to streaming video, a software development kit is available. The kit provides a comprehensive set of tools to further develop customized digital streaming video applications. Also included is the ability to preview the video on a PC monitor while encoding, or the option to pass-through to a TV monitor when encoding.

Along with the card, all the software features of VITEC's DVD Toolbox are included, providing an editing and authoring suite. Applications include: MPEG Maker 2, an AVI and BMP to MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 converter; Video Clip MPEG-2, an MPEG-2 frame-accurate editor to edit existing MPEG files; and DVDMaker, a simple authoring program to define linear chapters and generate DVD images on disk.
