KanREN Tests the Windows 8 Release Preview

The Windows 8 Release Preview went live on 5/31/12, and KanREN has been actively testing all of our systems to insure that users that switch to Windows 8 will not have a degraded experience.


Windows 8 appears to work flawlessly with a vast majority of KanREN services.  All Scalable Video Services (powered by Vidyo™) work on the three major browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome).

The Renovo Scheduler works on both Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, but it is not functional on the Internet Explorer 10 Beta that is included in the Windows 8 Release Preview download.

Windows 8 is not due for full release until later, but it appears that it will fully integrate into the current network and set of services offered by KanREN.
