Deliver multipoint HD quality to desktops and conference rooms
Nefsis, a provider of video conferencing software and online services, has launched USB 3.0 online HD video conferencing service.
According to the company, the USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0, but it can transfer data at ten times the speed. At present, USB 2.0 limits webcams to HD 720p, and continuous video calling.
The new USB 3.0 enables HD 1080p at standard frame rates, including 30 progressive and 60 progressive frames per second.
Nefsis is cloud-based video conferencing offering to deliver multipoint HD quality to desktops and conference rooms, the company said.
Nefsis enables the use of any video peripheral, including USB 2.0 webcams (720p), future USB 3.0 webcams (1080p), and virtually any Windows compatible video source, including handheld cameras and medical imaging devices, with built-in security and web collaboration tools.
Nefsis VP of Marketing Tom Toperczer said what used to cost thousands or tens of thousands of dollars for boardroom video conferencing will soon be available to any desktop or conference room at webcam prices.
The company claims that multipoint HD video conferencing will soon become much more affordable to businesses as chipset and motherboard manufacturers incorporate USB 3.0.
