Panasonic launches HD Video Conferencing

Panasonic Australia will bring Australian businesses into the High Definition videoconferencing era, with the introduction of a new High Definition Visual Communications System designed to improve productivity, as well as lowering both operational costs and carbon footprint by reducing the need for business travel.

Panasonic’s HD video conferencing system cn cut back on business travel and reduce your carbon footprint

The new VC500 Full High Definition Video Conferencing System, scheduled for release in February 2011, features a Panasonic 50-inch Full High Definition VIERA Plasma TV, main system unit, two High Definition Video Cameras, a 360º HD Audio microphone, VPN Router and intuitive Remote Control for improved flexibility and ease-of-use.

Panasonic Australia’s business systems group director, Mark Deere-Jones, said the new offering dramatically enhanced the distance collaboration capabilities offered by conventional video conferencing systems.

“This is a first for Panasonic Australia and we are delighted to be able to provide local businesses with an easy-to-use and effective alternative to business travel.”

“This is not just a conference phone with video. With the VC500, users will enjoy superior image quality and smooth, natural conversation – this system provides the ultimate collaborative experience that will make you feel like you’re truly in the same room with your remote colleagues,” he said.

“With links available for up to three different locations, keeping in face-to-face contact with colleagues is now as easy as making a phone call,” he continued.

“With the new Panasonic system, you can connect with team-mates instantly, make decisions fast and get more done – all while leaving a smaller carbon footprint for your company. Furthermore, the customisable design allows you to create a system that suits your needs, no matter what industry you work in.”

The Panasonic KX-VC500 HD Visual Communications Solution will be available in February 2011. Pricing will be announced closer to the release date.
