Guildford, UK. 7th April 2009 - Visual Nexus today announced its High Definition (HD) version of the Visual Nexus Version 4 virtual meeting solution. The Visual Nexus V4 HD meeting server can host meetings displaying video images from two up to sixteen different HD video conferencing endpoints. The meeting server is a software product running on a standard Intel quad-core server. Visual Nexus V4 HD is available on the 20th April and is very competitively priced with an 8 port Meeting server (MCU, Gatekeeper and administration server having a list price of $19,120. With the release of this new capability it is now possible for companies to connect together four HD conference rooms and six remote or mobile users for $25,700, making Visual Nexus one of the most competitive solutions in the industry.

During the current difficult economic environment, companies have been seeking ways to reduce travel expense while increasing productivity. Many companies are implementing video conferencing as the way to solve this problem. The video conferencing vendors have been offering HD video conferencing devices that are compatible with various HD resolutions, including 720P (1280X720), 1080p (1920X1080 and 1080i (1920X1080).

“We are pleased to introduce our new Visual Nexus solution providing support for HD video conferencing. Because we have managed to create this product using our advanced software technology, we can respond to the current trends in video conferencing systems while retaining the flexibility and price competitiveness that we have offered in the past.” said Andy Suzuki, Manager of Visual Nexus Business Department. “We believe Visual Nexus is the ideal video conference solution for companies who are working to improve their multi-site communication and are seeking to improve business efficiency through better communication.”

Visual Nexus works with existing video conferencing devices or new desktop video clients. When SD and HD devices are mixed, the meeting server uses a resolution match function to adjust each device to display the best video resolution.

The product consists of the meeting server (MCU), a secure firewall traversal system supporting clients connected over the Internet, and a PC client that provides outstanding video and audio quality calls and includes a full set of data sharing and collaboration tools.
