■ High-Quality Video/High-Speed
The high quality video codec and high-speed network
support of the PCS-G70P deliver video quality
comparable to standard TV broadcasts, offering 4CIF
live video at bandwidths as high as 4 Mbps over IP
networks or 2 Mbps over ISDN. In addition, the
PCS-G70P offers full support for the recently-ratified
ITU-T H.264 video codec standard, supporting
interlaced SIF with 50 fields per second for extremely
smooth, natural images*.
In addition to the supplied PCSA-CG70P camera unit,
the PCS-G70P supports a range of optional color
Pan/Tilt/Zoom video cameras: the BRC-300, a
16:9/4:3 switchable 3-CCD camera that delivers
exceptional quality video and that is an ideal
complement to the latest generation of widescreen
camera display; the EVI-D70PW, a white model of
PTZ video camera; the EVI-D70P, a black model of
PTZ video camera; the EVI-D100P, a PTZ video
camera. A total of four video cameras can be
connected to the PCS-G70P.
* The PCS-G70P supports a maximum of 50 fields per second in
interlaced SIF format.
■ Multi-Point Videoconferencing at up
to Ten Sites
The PCS-G70P is unique in providing high quality
video (H.264) and crisp, clear wideband audio
(MPEG-4 AAC) – even in multipoint conferences.
Using optional MCU software, the PCS-G70P can be
configured to communicate with up to five remote
sites simultaneously (six sites total) via any mix of IP,
ISDN, DSL and (mobile) telephone connections.
Moreover, the PCS-G70P can cascade with another
PCS-G70P, PCS-1P or PCS-TL50P to link up to ten
sites, again offering high bandwidth per connected
site and supporting H.264 and MPEG4 standards. For
even greater versatility, the 'speedmatching' function
ensures, for instance, that higher speed connections
over IP networks and lower speed ISDN connections
can be brought together within one multipoint
conference without reducing connection speeds to
the lowest denominator. With 'MCU on the fly'
support, users can start off with a peer-to-peer
videoconference and expand into a multi-point
meeting at any time by simply dialing additional
contacts as required.
■ Site-Name Display
It can be difficult keeping track of who's who in a
multi-point conference. The PCS-G70P can display the
name of each participant, their company or location on-
