Codian Unveils Major Technological Breakthrough for High Definition Market
Codian changes customer expectations with TANDBERG Codian ClearVisionTM, which magically transforms poor quality images from SD and ED endpoints!
LAS VEGAS, NV - May 23, 2007 - A technological breakthrough is set to
change the expectations of video conferencing users forever - claim Codian®,
the world's fastest growing voice and visual communications company.
Seeing is believing say the Company, as it announced TANDBERG Codian ClearVisionTM,
a unique technology that magically transforms poor quality images, from
standard and enhanced-definition endpoints, into 'near' high-definition clarity.
TANDBERG Codian ClearVision is the latest enhancement to Codian's MCU 4500 Series,
the only true high-definition voice and video conferencing bridge on the
market. The TANDBERG Codian MCU 4500 Series provides crystal clear, full-motion, highdefinition
video on every port. Codian's MCU 4500 Series supports the
highest video resolutions, speeds, frame rates and codecs of all the latest
high-definition endpoints. The TANDBERG Codian MCU 4500 Series includes full
Continuous Presence for all conferences, and now with TANDBERG Codian ClearVision, it
enables the mix of high, standard and enhanced-definition, so that
organizations make the most of high-definition installations.
At INTEROP Las Vegas, Codian will demonstrate ClearVision for the first
time, on its Booth #1282.
TANDBERG Codian ClearVision increases the quality of images from standard and
enhanced-definition video conferencing endpoints to give superior visual
clarity for high-definition users on the same call. Therefore, organisations that
are installing high-definition video conference systems can now experience
superior quality images consistently, no matter where or how they originate.
Codian has kept under wraps the development of an advanced technology,
which has never been seen or used before within video conferencing
systems. This technology, when used in conjunction with high-definition
systems, vividly improves the visual performance of older endpoints. Codian
has developed ClearVision to address the challenge faced by organisations
that want a progressive transition to high-definition video conferencing that
optimises the performance of existing standard-definition equipment.
"High-definition video conferencing delivers a truly lifelike, interactive,
Telepresence-style, experience for all meeting participants. High-definition
systems are credited with giving users an immersive 'in person feeling', which
is the ultimate aim of video conferencing events," said William MacDonald,
