The new system combines up to 16 screens in high-definition resolution
OKI Electric Industry, a Japanese telecommunications manufacturer, has launched Visual Nexus ver4.0 HD, a new version of its video conferencing system, Visual Nexus, that is compatible with high-definition.
According to the company, the new version improves video resolution for video conferences and can combine on the server up to 16 screens in high-definition (HD) resolution.
OKI Electric said that Visual Nexus ver4.0 HD is compatible with the latest HD resolutions, 720P, 1080i and 1080P, while maintaining backward compatibility with standard-definition (SD) format, and thus supports users who operate both types.
OKI Electric claims that the product consists of a conference server and a PC client, which can be connected to various types of third parties’ SD and HD video conferencing devices. Therefore, users can use Visual Nexus with their existing third party’s video conferencing devices. Even when SD and HD devices are mixed, the conference server uses a resolution match function and adjusts each device to display natural video conferencing resolution, the company maintained.
Atsuhisa Suzuki, manager of Visual Nexus business department at OKI Electric, said: We are pleased to introduce our Visual Nexus for HD resolution. We believe our Visual Nexus is the ideal video conference solution for companies who are working to improve their method of multi-location communication and those who seek to improve business efficiency through more cost-effective communication.
