In a move designed to integrate the sourcing, management and delivery of video within a single control environment, ViewCast has launched its Interactive Video Network (IVN).
ViewCast IVN integrates technologies that source, switch, distribute and manage live and stored video assets in applications including videoconferencing, on-site video distribution, distance learning, video resource sharing and personal video communication for education, finance, government and business institutions.
The system integrates virtually any form of video communication into a single environment, controlled with simple and intuitive user interfaces.
User convenience is enhanced by mobility features that let users log in at remote locations to place and receive video connections via Web-based controls. Traveling employees can log in from their hotel rooms with laptop Webcams — or from offices with conventional videoconferencing equipment, and still have a complete video experience.
ViewCast IVN network nodes can be deployed wherever needed and networked together via video trunks. The two-way transport can take almost any form — from low-bandwidth H.323, H.320, H.264, or even MPEG video riding on a corporate LAN or WAN to full-motion, uncompressed video moving over dedicated or shared fiber networks.
Virtually any available video delivery method can be used in any combination, with ViewCast IVN software managing the video transport resources automatically. The user is completely unaware of whether the video is carried via TCP/IP, ISDN or any other available means.
