Panasonic Introduces 3D Video Conferencing

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic, a worldwide leader in Full HD 3D technology, today introduced immersive 3D capability in its HD Visual Communications System (HDVC). Panasonic continues to lead the marketplace with a range of cutting-edge 3D products, creating opportunities for enterprises to take their operations to the next level. The 3D HDVC solution enhances the productivity and collaboration of key commercial and professional applications such as healthcare, manufacturing and education. It will be on display at the Panasonic booth #9408 in the Las Vegas Convention Center at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Panasonic's 3D HDVC provides a scalable and reliable solution for capturing immersive content as well as providing an easy-to-use training tool for educators. Adding the advantage of enhanced depth of field to the HDVC allows medical procedures to be viewed and demonstrated with greater clarity and realism for diagnosis and teaching. The myriad manufacturing applications include real time viewing of computer aided design (CAD) schematics to make details pop and offer an enhanced viewing perspective.

"Panasonic 3D HDVC offers greater real time collaboration and realism impossible to experience with traditional 2D video conferencing," said Bill Taylor, president of Panasonic System Networks Company of America. "As a worldwide leader in 3D technology, Panasonic is proud to bring the power of 3D to our advanced HDVC solution."

Delivering Full HD video and 360 degree full duplex audio, the HDVC system surpasses the collaboration capabilities of conventional video conferencing systems, providing businesses and institutions with a genuinely viable alternative to business travel. The Panasonic HDVC system is scalable, meaning it allows for Full HD images to be displayed on a wide range of HD monitors, from desktop LCDs all the way up to a 152-inch class HD Plasma display, or even projected with an HD projector. The system also allows for multiple HD cameras to be utilized, so a second camera can zoom in and share detailed images such as solder joints, chips on printed circuit boards, manufacturing lines, or even close-up details during medical procedures.
