Let's Rock with the Z4 (with Dr. Z's Help)!!! -- ZVRS Feature #5

For this week, Dr. Z is putting up features about the fantastic videophone that everyone is talking about–the Z4!

The Z4 has so many cool features and by giving it to you piece by piece will allow you to appreciate the power of the Z4! Some of these features may be documented, some may be hidden and some may not be documented–but don’t let this bother you–as a software pioneer himself, Dr. Z has found it best to not “read the stuff”, but play with the stuff–the actual experience is usually the best way to learn.

The fifth cool feature about the Z4 is the multiparty feature—it is the “A” “B” and “3-face” buttons on the upper right side of the Z4 screen. It allows you to do 2 things:

1) switch between two parties, putting one on hold while you talk to the other
2) talk to 2 people at the same time, including yourself (to make it a 3-party call).

To make it work, click “A” and call the first party; then click “B” and call the second party. The first party will be put on hold when you call the second party. When you click “A”, the “B” party is put on hold. When you click the “3-face” button, both “A” and “B” parties appear on your screen, plus the screen where you see yourself. To make the screen clearer, hit the “ESC” button to go into full screen mode.

Try it! It only works when you are connected to someone in a conversation.

Cool. isn’t it? Check in with Dr. Z every day of the week this week (March 22-26) for more hints about the power of the Z4!

A reminder about Dr. Z’s class schedule on the Z4 next week–go to Dr. Z will conduct classes with the Z4 and the new My Mail answering machine function.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Disclosure: Dr. Z is a contractor working with CSDVRS on several projects.
