[GnomeMeeting-list] Announce: GnomeMeeting wins Belgian IT Prize

GnomeMeeting, a H.323 videoconferencing application for Linux and 
FreeBSD by PhD student Damien Sandras, wins this year's Belgian
Information Technology prize for the best University Project. 


The Belgian Journalists on Information Technology award the IT prize
each year to the four best University projects and is sponsored by major
IT and  Telecoms companies including Microsoft, IBM, Orange, Siemens, 
and Oracle. 
GnomeMeeting (http://www.gnomemeeting.org) was written by Damien Sandras
as his final year project for his degree in Computer Science Engineering
at Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL, http://www.ucl.ac.be),
Department of Computing Science and Engineering (INGI,
http://www.ingi.ucl.ac.be/) in Louvain-La-Neuve.

This program allows Linux and FreeBSD users to video conference with 
industry standard H.323 applications such as the Microsoft NetMeeting program
for Windows. The program has proved extremely popular with users, and is now 
included in many Linux distributions as well as with FreeBSD. 
GnomeMeeting uses the GNOME desktop or the popular KDE environment. 
Audio is supported via standard sound cards and video can be used 
from capture cards or USB cameras. ILS and LDAP directories can be used,
and H.323 protocol support is provided by the OpenH323 library written
by Equivalence Pty Ltd (http://www.openh323.org). 

Damien is pleased to receive this prize, which comes just as he and a 
team of volunteers are preparing the next version of GnomeMeeting for 
release. You can find out more about GnomeMeeting on at
