RADVISION, Samsung Team on Desktop Videoconferencing
By Richard Martin, VON
Attempting to power the next generation of videoconferencing systems, Tel Aviv-based video equipment provider RADVISION says it will partner with Samsung to produce a new high-def, desktop videoconferencing product.
A standalone system jointly designed and developed by the two companies, the VC420 comprises a 24-inch widescreen monitor, a high-definition camera, built-in speakers and dual echo-cancelling microphones, all based on RADVISION's videoconferencing engine. It will compete with increasingly popular desktop-computer-based systems that are rapidly improving in terms of image quality and connection reliability. The companies promise a high degree of interoperability with other systems currently on the market - meaning, presumably, that VC420 users will be able to interact with customers and partners using PC-based systems from other manufacturers.
The VC420 also can be used as a computer display, and it allows users to immediately move to a PC display from the dedicated monitor.The VC420 also can be used as a computer display, and it allows users to immediately move to a PC display from the dedicated monitor.
Pricing for the new model was not immediately available. Samsung and RADVISION will be demonstrating the new system at the InfoComm trade show this week in Orlando.
