Sony Ipela PCS-G50 - Features |
The system can be customized with capture, output and display options, and is capable of delivering broadcast-quality video over IP networks utilizing the H.263 standard video codec/4CIF format at a maximum video transfer rate of 4 Mbps. For higher throughput, the PCS-G50 also supports the H.264 standard as well as previous ITU-T standard video-conferencing codecs for enhanced compatibility with legacy systems.
Sony Ipela PCS-G50 - Support
Internal Multi-Control Unit (MCU) enables broad interoperability by bridging mixed calls between ISDN and IP networks, allowing users to match individual speeds rather than drop the performance of the entire system to the lowest rate. The system supports multi-point conferencing with six endpoints or up to 10 endpoints by cascading two PCS-G50s. A "site name" display makes identification of multiple participants easier.
Sony Ipela - Remote Commander
The Remote Commander wireless remote control further facilitates system operation, and can immediately connect to any one of three contacts pre-programmed into the launch menu with up to 500 additional contacts stored in the address book. The Remote Commander unit also features a call log that can store the last 32 inbound and outbound calls. Audio and video can be saved to Memory Stick media. The system incorporates data sharing, QoS support functions to maximize bandwidth efficiency, encryption and digital whiteboard support. The PCS-G50 is planned to be available this month at a suggested list price of $5,800.
