“We are honored to team with Quanta to deliver its LiveHD video capabilities to market,” said Amir Zmora, RADVISION vice president of marketing and products for RADVISION’s Technology Business Unit. “Quanta has developed an innovative approach to HD video-enable any laptop or mobile client helping millions of people use video collaboration as their preferred method of communication – easily and intuitively regardless of network, carrier, protocol, application, or device they use.Key features and functionality of the LiveHD video client include interoperability with all standards-based H.323 and SIP video systems. Additionally, the client fully supports H.323 and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) technologies, enabling UC systems to interoperate with traditional video technologies. The LiveHD client will reside on Quanta-manufactured notebooks and tablets. The LiveHD client will come in two variations – one for PCs and one for tablets:
- LiveHD for PCs. LiveHD for PCs leverages a unique and cost-effective processing capability that offloads H.264 video encoding from the computer CPU and uses the Quanta embedded camera equipped with an internal H.264 encoder. This capability dedicates resources as needed without compromising video quality.
- LiveHD for Tablets. LiveHD is optimized on the OMAP™ 4 mobile processing platform from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). The OMAP 4 processor’s smart multicore architecture offloads video encoding and decoding from the main CPUs, freeing them to support performance-intensive collaboration applications without sacrificing Quanta’s HD mobile video teleconferencing quality of 720p/30fps or higher.
