With this new solution from VidSoft, Enterprises, System integrators or AV-Specialist will get an outstanding opportunity to implement a unique HD-Videoconferencing infrastructure for Desktops and Notebooks. As an example, a complete in-house solution for 10 users as a start configuration requires only an investment of far below 10.000 EURO. VidSoft version 1.9 with full motion HD-support offers a valid alternative for today’s hardware-based systems and allows now enjoying the benefits of HD-Videoconferencing for a much wider range of users.

Using the VidSoft server integrated MCU, Multipoint conferences with up to 10 users are very easy to set-up. All data packages are end-to-end encrypted, using the AES Standard and fulfil the highest security requirements. The solution does not only work with expensive HD-cameras, using most modern webcams like e.g. the Logitech Pro900, allowing minimum 15 pictures/second in HD-resolution, will work also. This gives the users fort he first time the chance to implement a professional HD-videoconferencing solution with minimum investments in additional hardware. With the Logitech webcam as an example, it will be below 100 EURO. Beside HD-Video, all integrated Data collaboration features (Applicationsharing, Desktopsharing, Documentsharing, Filetransfer) can be used in parallel and using separate displays for Data applications and the conference participants allows a real new experience of communication.

Sascha Kuemmel, CTO and Managing Director VidSoft GmbH highlights: „With VidSoft Version 1.9 we have reached to overcome the limitations of HD-Videoconferencing in meeting rooms and are now able to deliver the best quality right to the desktop of the user. Many of our customers have asked us for low-cost, internet-based HD-Quality right on their Desktop, this wish now becomes reality.”
