Looking to Streamline Your Video Communications?

LG has arrived on the videoconferencing scene, with support from LifeSize, a division of Logitech. LG’s executive conferencing system, powered by LifeSize, equips customers with a sleek video communications system and a versatile range of high-quality options. This includes a streamlined approach to HD video and voice communications and increased interoperability, all housed within a 24-inch LCD display.

Product highlights

The executive conferencing system has been designed to allow easy deployment, takes a few minutes to set up and only requires the connection of two cables.

It’s fully integrated with HD video and wideband audio, and features:

  • Point-to-Point calls at 720p30 HD resolution
  • An integrated 720p camera, microphone array and speakers
  • Built-in loudspeakers with Echo Cancellation
  • Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation for automatic control of the screen size based on the users’ network

Users will also benefit from an intuitive LifeSize graphical interface, allowing them to easily switch between HD videoconferencing and PC monitor functionality. The on-screen dashboard navigation includes options for shifting between calls, directories, settings and the main menu.

Interoperability

Broad interoperability with video communications systems and IP/PBX installations drives connections with vendors such as Alcatel-Lucent, Asterisk, Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco, Microsoft and Shoretel. This readily enables executives, remote office employees and teleworkers to connect face to face with anyone, anywhere.

The executive conferencing system will be available to order later this summer, with shipments ready in the fall.

Prysm’s LPD Technology Shakes Up Display Market

From plasma technology to LCDs, OLEDs and DLPs, display technology is constantly evolving to showcase bigger and better options. Striving towards further progress, Prysm has introduced a groundbreaking new display solution, powered by the manufacturer’s proprietary Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) technology. The announcement was made last week during InfoComm.

A 25″ diagonal (4:3) tile serves as the cornerstone of this innovative advancement. With nearly 180 degrees worth of viewing angles in both horizontal and vertical positions, LPD’s are geared to:

• Increase audience impact with scalable, high resolution images
• Provide greater visibility for content delivery and messaging
• Deliver scability, multiview and touchscreen capabilities
• Consume up to 75% less power than other display technologies on the market

Commercial customers with digital signage needs — including retail stores, stadiums and arenas, and hospitality venues — could stand to receive the greatest benefits, with the promise of brilliant picture quality and longer lasting technology.

With this in mind, do any of these factors raise your interest in LPD technology? What issues have the greatest effect when it comes to your buying decision?
