Panasonic launches HD video conferencing
Dubai, November 4, 2010
Panasonic has launched its new high definition two way communications system, which allows for video conferencing over greater distances without any loss of quality.
The KX-VC500 is a clear departure from conventional video conferencing, a statement said, adding that the system is supported by advanced Panasonic technologies to help deliver high image and sound quality and stable connection.
The Panasonic KX-VC500 HD visual communications solution is comprised of Panasonic 50-inch full HD Viera plasma TV, the codec, two HD video cameras, 360 degrees HD audio microphone, VPN router and an intuitive remote control, along with standard cables and accessories.
It includes on-screen guidance and one-touch memory keys for frequent meetings and also includes both on-site and remote technical support from Panasonic.
“The KX-VC500 is an ideal conference and communication tool for offices across the Middle East with multiple branches and businesses with remote operatives,” commented Hiroshi, Maruyama, general manager, Telecom Products, Panasonic Marketing Middle East.
“The VC500 is designed to provide real-time, communication that replicates the experience of being in the same room with distant and isolated colleagues,” he added.
Panasonic’s HD visual communications system employs H.264 video compression to transmit HD video and audio using roughly half the bandwidth of competitive systems, the statement said.
Additionally, the system’s flexibility and scalability accommodates a wide range of HD displays, from small-scale desktop LCDs to a 150-inch HD plasma or HD projector.
It also allows for multiple HD cameras to be utilized, so a second camera can be used as a document camera or to send images of a specific activity or application. The HD visual communications system also allows full-motion, high-resolution video to be transmitted from laptops connected to the system.
The system allows for full HD images to be displayed on a wide range of HD monitors, from desktop LCDs to a 150-inch HD plasma, or even projected with an HD projector on a large screen at a conference presentation or an educational institution.
The system makes it possible to instantaneously communicate and collaborate with colleagues and industry experts wherever they happen to be.
With full HD 1080i video and 360-degree audio delivered over a standard broadband connection, the Panasonic HDVC System allows companies to save money by reducing travel and improving productivity, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
