The jing is a large gong used in traditional Korean music, particularly in samul nori, pungmul, and daechwita to keep beat. It is usually made from high-quality brass and is struck by a stick that is layered with cloth at one end to soften the texture of the sound produced. It is typically played in farmer, shaman, Buddhist, and military music for ceremonies and special occasions, varying in size for each occasion. It is capable of producing a gentle and lingering sound as well as a big sound with a roaring effect, depending on force applied when striking against the brass.

Jing (software)

Jing is a screencasting computer program launched in 2007 as Jing Project by the TechSmith Corporation. The software takes a picture or video of the user's computer screen and uploads it to the Web, FTP, computer or clipboard. If uploaded to the web, the program automatically creates a URL to the content so it can be shared with others. Jing is compatible with Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. Users must sign up for an account before using the software.

Its simple format and the ability to quickly upload screencasts have made Jing useful for virtual reference in libraries.

On 6 January 2009, TechSmith released Jing Pro, a paid premium version of Jing.

In February 2012, Techsmith announced Jing Pro is to be retired. All users (regardless of subscription) could use this service until 28 February 2013.
