Hello gotoblack, As noted above, CNN's videophone technology is discussed in this article: "For News Networks, Speedy Satellites Rule," by Glen Dickson (11/8/2004) Broadcasting & Cable http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA478568.html?display=Special+Report&referral=supp The article refers to Apple G4 laptops, Sony PD-170 cameras, and Final Cut Pro software. Here are links to product and purchasing information for those items: "Powerbook G4" Apple http://www.apple.com/powerbook/ "Select your Powerbook G4" The Apple Store http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore?family=PowerBook "DSRPD170" Sony DSRPD170 "DSRPD170 > Sony Reseller Locator" Sony http://bssc.sel.sony.com/BroadcastandBusiness/FindReseller?m=0&sm=0&p=2&sp=11&id=71949 "Final Cut Pro 5" Apple http://www.apple.com/finalcutstudio/finalcutpro/ "Final Cut Pro 5" The Apple Store http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wo/StoreReentry.wo?productLearnMore=M9920Z%2FA - justaskscott Search strategy -- Searched on Google for these terms, individually or in various combinations: "video phone" videophone correspondent cnn site:cnn.com 7e [maker of a prior videophone used by CNN; the next six terms refer to its products] "talking head" "th-1" th1 "th-2" th2 s0da "g-4" g4 apple final cut pro "pd-170" pd170 sony

I don't know what CNN uses, but I can give you some feedback since I recently purchased a phone that records video. On a recent trip to Hong Kong I purchased a Nokia 6230i. You can see a previous Google Answers thread here: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=554700 Here's a link to the phone's product information: http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,69499,00.html Integrated Digital Camera * 1.3 megapixel camera (image size 1280x1024 pixels) * Record video in the 3GPP QCIF video file format (H.263 video and AMR for improved sound) * Record up to one hour of video - depending on the amount of memory available on the phone or MMC * Print images directly from the phone over a Bluetooth connection or using an MMC (depending on the printer) I use a Macintosh G4 Notebook to transfer the photographs and video files from the phone to my laptop. Likewise, I am able to send multimedia files directly from my cell phone to another cell phone number or also to an email address, since I have the email service available. The 3GPP video files play in Quicktime with no problems and the quality and sound is quite good, especially considering it's on a cell phone.
