Panasonic System Networks Co. of America's HD Visual Communications System (KX-VC500) dramatically enhances the distance collaboration capabilities afforded by conventional video conferencing systems. Ideal for general business applications by greatly reducing the time and expense of traveling. Additionally, the system is ideal for specialized applications in the law enforcement, prison and court systems by offering a safe and cost-effective way to interview detainees without leaving secured environments.
Panasonic's HD Visual Communications System employs H.264 video compression to efficiently transmit HD video and audio using roughly half the bandwidth of competitive systems. Additionally, the system's flexibility and scalability accommodates a wide range of HD displays, from small-scale desktop LCDs to a 150" 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 HD Visual Communications system is comprised of a Panasonic 50-inch Full HD VIERA Plasma TV, a codec, two HD Video Cameras, 360-degree 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.
