Panasonic brings HD communications system to the enterprise

29 Apr 15

Panasonic System Solutions Asia Pacific has added two new models to its High Definition Visual Communications (HDVC) System, a platform for enterprise-grade video conferencing.

The two additions, the KX-VC-1300 and KX-VC1600, provide an HD video-communications experience across four or more sites in order to connect businesses and increase enterprise communication opportunities.

The KX-VC1300 and KX-VC1600 deliver video in 1080p at 60 frames per second using proprietary compression codecs, which Panasonic says ensures clear audio and video even under challenging bandwidth conditions.

The new models support H.261, H.263, H.264 and H.239 dual streaming and remain compatible with legacy video conferencing equipment.

This allows enterprises to expand their conferencing solutions while still retaining existing equipment and reducing capital expenditure, says Panasonic.

Both new models are multi-device compatible and can be connected to a variety of devices including laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets running Windows, iOS or Android operating systems.

The base KX-VC1300 comes with four-site connection capability as standard, while the KX-VC1600 includes a built-in Multi-Connection Unit (MCU), offering up to six-site connection capability in its standard configuration.

With the optional KX-VCS304 software upgrade, this can be expanded to up to 10 sites without requiring additional MCU boxes.

The KX-VC1600 comes with ports for dual network connections, enabling high-definition video conferencing over private intranets as well as secured internet connections.

Both the KX-VC1300 and KX-VC1600 are currently available through authorised Panasonic resellers.
