Real meeting with TxVideoConf:
Picture below shows TxVideoConf system used in a real world situation. There were four parties invited and one of the attendees shared his screen so others were able to see his PowerPoint presentation. Configuration below features our dual screen solution which allows attendees to arrange screen layouts even more efficiently. TxVideoConf screen layouts are very flexible, allowing you to create the look you want.
HD with Pan/Tilt/Zoom
TxVideoConf systems support the best in the class HD cameras with 1080p support. With Pan/Tilt/Zoom controls from your favorite control devices, you can manipulate the camera for both your and your peer’s sites. TxVideoConf HD support delivers true-to-life images for the best video-conferencing experience.
TxVideoConf supports several participants at a time in a conference. If bandwidth is an issue at certain locations, the TxVideoConf system can be told to restrict or prioritize certain site links. When prioritized links exists in a video conferencing session, TxVideoConf makes sure that the prioritized links have higher priority for the allocated bandwidth.
When new attendees join in, the TxVideoConf system arranges them for optimal viewing. This does not always work for everyone. We provide a touch screen interface to configure TxVideoConf view layout. You can choose between different layouts such as single view, side-by-side split, Four-view and many more. TxSmartBridge Synthesis provides you with an efficient way of viewing who all are present in a meeting while indicating who the present talker is. Since you can see who all is present in a meeting, you can be sure that there are no unwanted participants in your meetings, making secure meetings really secure.
You have more important things to worry about than with problems with your video conferencing systems. TxVideoConf is a Zero Configuration program. When its time for a meeting the TxVideoConf system will automatically start up and connect everyone. Once the meeting is over, the program will switch out of the conference mode and wait for the next one to start. All TxVideoConf configurations happen on the server side, so your admins are the ones taking care of all of the technical details. In turn, you are left with a rich conferencing experience.
It is important for us to deliver a solution which allows you to built on your existing infrastructure and which integrates well with you existing investments. TxVideoConf employs industry standard protocols such as H.323 and H.264 to integrate with your existing systems. H.264 encoded video provides optimum bandwidth usage while keeping your costs low.
Although we have tried to make TxVideoConf as automated as possible, there might be times when you want to change something. For example, change the way your peers appear on screen, or to mute or ban certain users from the conference. For complete flexibility, there’s a web interface which you can access using your favorite device to control every aspect of the meeting.
TxVideoConf provides extensive integration with devices to make this experience as straightforward and efficient as possible. The product includes remote control applications for the iPhone and the iPad, which allow you to configure the experience to your liking. Speech commands can also be announced in a conference room to perform certain actions.
TxVideoConf provides a simple and easy to use web interface to configure all video conferencing sites within an organization. Your administrators can specify parameters like bandwidth usage, maximum sites to connect to, which sites are higher priority than others, and several other properties for each site. Each of these sites can be remotely restarted, suspended and revived providing you with maximum control of all of your sites right on your computer.
H.264, also known as MPEG-4 AVC, is a state-of-the-art video encoding standard. It is used to encode videos for Blu-Ray and HDDVD discs. H.264 is a motion-compensation based technology, which means that less dynamic scenes are more efficient to encode. This is ideal for video conferencing where video capture is not very dynamic, there by, delivering optimum compression and bandwidth usage. H.264 also includes advanced de-blocking filters, effectively reducing the amount of “blockiness” in videos. The H.264 HD encoder used by TxVideoConf is capable of encoding video streams at different bit rates allowing TxVideoConf to run on networks with different bandwidth infrastructures.
Real-time Transport Protocol and Real-time Transport Control Protocol are the accepted standard of protocols for delivering real time content such as audio and video over a network. TxVideoConf uses these protocols to deliver video data between sites. RTCP can help manage differences in network speeds and allows TxVideoConf to work seamlessly on different networks with different bandwidth limitations. RTP implementation in TxVideoConf uses advanced jitter buffers to deliver content in-order, reliably, and on-time which is critical for Video Conferencing applications. TxVideoConf performs Direct Media Delivery to directly deliver video content to each of the participant sites. This results in higher throughput since no intermediary is involved.
TxVideoConf uses a stripped down version of Linux to power site set-top boxes. Interlink Network Systems has developed an in-house variation of Linux to suit Video Conferencing requirements for TxVideoConf. Linux provides a robust and reliable foundation to run high-performance applications like TxVideoConf. It also helps reduce maintenance and deployment costs.
OpenGL is a 2D/3D graphics framework, which provides the necessary infrastructure to enable multimedia rich front-end for TxVideoConf. OpenGL employs the latest advances in graphics and video technologies to provide a feature rich, robust, high-performance and reliable platform for developing content rich applications. TxVideoConf uses OpenGL’s capability to program hardware to perform fast and efficient video filtering. OpenGL is also responsible for presenting User Interface of the site machines.
The TxVideoConf system is powered by a centrally controlled and administered server system. The server system allows fine-tuned control over each of the site machines. The site machines can be powered on/off, suspended and configured remotely. The server system organizes sites into groups and allows administrators to explicitly start and stop conference sessions. The administrators may also add and remove participants dynamically.
The server system provides a programmable interface allowing easy integration with existing enterprise processes and scheduling systems including TxSmartBridge. Similar to the administrative controls, the programmable interface allows starting and stopping conferences and dynamically adding and removing participants. The server is built on top of robust technologies delivering high-performance, reliability and scalability.
