files from being copied to other media and thus preventing illegal copying.

compression mathod that compresses data to one-tenth of its actual size by eliminating audio
information that humans have difficulty perceiving.

Videoconferencing Using PictureHello
■ Picture Descriptions
■ What is videoconferencing?
Videoconferencing is a form of communication in which you can see a live
image of the person you are calling as you converse in realtime. This
explanation describes the use of the FinePixViewer PictureHello software, in
which specific PCs communicate with each other (one-to-one communication)
via the Internet.
Windows
● A FUJIFILM camera equipped with the “PC Camera” function
● A PC with an Internet connection
✩ 56kbps modem connection or better or an ISDN connection
✩ An established service contract with an Internet service provider (ISP)
✽ Depending on your type of Internet connection and/or your modem connection
speed, video quality may deteriorate and some frames may be lost.
✩ A sound card installed and speakers and a microphone connected to your PC
✽ PCs that do not have a sound card installed and speakers and a microphone
connected can only be used to transmit images.
✽ For the best results, use headphones with an attached microphone.
✩ If your Internet connection is via a router or via a LAN (connecting machines on
the LAN to the Internet), you cannot use videoconferencing.
✩ If your PC and the other party’s PC are connected to the same LAN and you are
connected to the Internet via a router, PictureHello can be used between the 2
PCs. However, if there is a firewall between the LAN and external lines, the
status of parties in the Address Book may be “Unknown” depending on the
firewall settings, making calls to those parties impossible.
● FinePixViewer and NetMeeting 3.01 installed
● A completed FinePix Internet Service user registration
✽ When the user registration button [
] is displayed on the right side of the
FinePixViewer window, you must complete the user registration procedure.
(See P.43.)
Important Notes on E-mail Addresses for Videoconferencing
Take care when using your own e-mail address. Disclosing your e-mail address to
people other than those you wish to call could result in unintentional and
unnecessary videoconferencing calls from third parties.
