    Video Technology

    Lynne's work in automated video production was discussed as part of SIGCHI's Advances in Computer Entertainment Conference in Singapore. The paper Lessons Learned in Massive Video Production (MVP) for University Alumni Outreach described Lynne's work with UC Berkeley's physics department on alumni outreach using a datacenter-based scalable video production server array technology called ExecProducer. She received an Alumni Award for this work at the Physics Department Alumni Reunion and Dinner October 2003. Asked later about her feelings on receiving this award, "The unexpected honor I have received tonight from my department is without doubt one of the most wonderful moments of my life."

    Ultra Low Power TCP/IP

    Lynne's latest accomplishment in hardware technology is the achievement of a patented technology for the lowest power usage internet communications technology, usable in cellphones (see Patent 6,952,409).

    For extremely high-speed optical connections, power is often the limiting factor in massive 100/1,000 Gb/sec applications. Lynne's approach gets at the theoretical minimum power possible. Check back soon for developments on this revolutionary basic technology, and how it will change the face of the Internet over the next decade.
