    The first one looks like one of the oncidium tribe while the second is a dendrobium. That is about as much help as I can give from looking at the pictures.

    I agree, the first is an Oncidium, probably a hybrid. It looks like it has Oncidium ornithorhynchum in its background.

    The second is a Dendrobium, also a hybrid, of the Dendrobium phalaenopsis type.

    I don't think any identification can be more specific than that. There are for too many similar hybrids of both tpes.
