QuickTime, as well as Windows Media and MXF files (via a plug-in from
Telestream). Audio and video chat is also possible.
A virtual laser pointer allows session participants to point

text annotations can also be added during a session or offline.
Upon completion, markers can be exported to Final Cut Pro.
