PANORAMIC IMAGING – www.panoramic-imaging.com 

360° Video - This is very exciting and has to be seen to be believed (samples can be viewed using the above link).  We have several systems that are capable of live webcasting and on demand streaming.  The video and audio feed can use Windows Media Player, RealPlayer or QuickTime.

We have new digital single shot camera systems that can 'freeze' motion, so be used in busy environments - furthermore we have developed a webcam version that will update itself at fixed time intervals.  This allows almost realtime webcasting from an event, offering 360° interactivity, without the costs associated with live webcasting. Click here for samples www.panoramic-imaging.com

Please contact panoramics@sur.co.uk for further details of how to include this technology within your site.

IT/INTERNET LEGAL ISSUES – E-MAILS AND BUSINESS NAMES

The general view is that e-mails should be treated in the same way as any other written communication which means that the laws on company and business names also apply to e-mails. Currently very few businesses or companies appear to quote their full details on e-mails which is a breach of both the Companies Act 1985 and the Business Names Act 1985. The Companies Act requires that business letters and other official publications contain the full and correct name of the company, the address of its registered office and the place and number of its registration. The Business Names Act has similar requirements and applies to any business in Great Britain which is carried out under a name that does not consist of the name or names of the proprietor and/or the partners or the full name of the company carrying on the business.

We recommend that all our clients ensure that they comply with the both the Companies Act and the Business Names Act by ensuring that their e-mails contain all the required information.
