Build 2014, the developers' conference, has been proven an optimal tool for Microsoft to affirm itself in the tech world, having all it takes to be a leading tech guru once again. Microsoft has from day one of the Build conference over-exceeded expectations with its Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 updates, and the Windows in the Car concept. On Monday, Microsoft announced its greatest surprise yet: namely, Skype TX for professionals.
In a post on Skype's official blog yesterday, Microsoft revealed its latest version of the chat platform, Skype TX. Microsoft has raised the bar with a Skype in Media software offering. This service has been designed specifically for broadcasters “to develop new formats and creative concepts for live, video-on-demand and other digital content – creating even more engaging moments.”
Skype TX is the obvious remedy for the audio and visual disturbances, such as call notifications and advertisements, that can be found in the regular Skype platform. TX will enable multiple simultaneous and “studio grade” calls, managed through one interface. According to the post, more features will include HD-SDI video output/input, balanced audio output and input, auto aspect ratio conversion, and operator previews.
Microsoft was able to develop this upgrade through its acquisition of the long-standing broadcast company Cat and Mouse. The former company has a clear-cut market in mind for TX, and although no pricing or shipping dates have as of yet been mentioned, it is expected the price tag will be a significant amount.
