Sony’s PCS-XG80 system enables users to connect through high bandwidth connections or through standard-definition legacy systems over IP and/or ISDN. With dual stream functionality, users can send two separate parallel streams of live HD information simultaneously. It is also possible to display live camera view and animated PowerPoint data in HD on two different screens or projectors at a remote site.
This new system is an expansion of Sony’s existing PCS-HG90 system. The PCS-XG80 features BrightFace, Video Annotation, and RF Remote functionality. In addition, wide band stereo audio and six-site multipoint conferencing with language support for 20 different languages improve users’ communication, helping them to understand one another more easily.
“We believe that the PCS-XG80 system delivers the best available video and audio quality on the market for large corporate organizations, as well as SMEs (small and medium size enterprises), healthcare institutions, education establishments and government bodies that are looking for cost-effective, proven communication technologies,” said Mike Sekiguchi, General Manager for Sony Electronics’ IPELA videoconferencing group.
TFOT recently covered Microsoft’s RoundTable – a unique high-end video conferencing system featuring a 360-degree panoramic view of the conference participants using five built-in cameras. The RoundTable system is designed to allow users from around the room to communicate verbally and none-verbally.
