[Hanover, Germany, March 5, 2012]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, will be previewing its next generation telepresence solution at CeBIT, one of the world's largest technology trade shows. The new solution features integrated full-view tri-screen display technology with the smallest screen gap on the market for stunning full-picture image display to provide users with the most immersive experience. The solution is planned to ship in the fourth quarter of 2012.
"We are excited to unveil our new generation of telepresence solutions that incorporates industry-leading innovations to provide businesses with better user experience, while lowering operating costs," said Mr. Yiquan Chen, President, UC&C Product Line, Huawei Enterprise Business Group. "Huawei will continue to meet high-end client demands to deliver more realistic live videoconferencing experiences, as well as develop products to help clients increase efficiency and competitiveness."
The next generation full-view telepresence solution features a tri-screen system that creates a near-seamless multi-picture image to provide users with integrated imaging of unprecedented quality. In the videoconferencing industry, gaps between screens are typically 12 cm, which interrupt the users' viewing experience. Huawei's full-view telepresence solution dramatically reduces this problem by reducing screen gaps to 5.5 mm, just one twentieth of the size of gaps in products currently on the market.
Beyond the superior technology, Huawei's full-view telepresence employs stringent environmental standards in order to help clients reduce carbon emissions and lower operating costs. Overall power consumption is reduced to 1700W, 30% lower than the industry standard, which in turn reduces noise levels within the conference room as well as reducing the refrigeration pressure of air-conditioning units.
In addition, Huawei's full-view telepresence solution leads the industry with an advanced wall-mounted design that provides front access for simplified maintenance. This feature uses 30% less space in comparison with similar products and only requires 20 square feet, thereby saving precious conference room resources for businesses.
Core features for outstanding user experience
Huawei's next generation full-view telepresence solution is based on the development of the second generation of Huawei telepresence TP3106, and holds a competitive edge over similar products currently on the market by providing the clearest picture and the smoothest video experience through its 1080p 60fps high-definition technology. The stunning high-definition picture allows for more effective non-verbal communication, which strengthens and builds important work-place relationships.
Full-view telepresence also supports both remote and local meetings which helps clients use their video communication technology more efficiently. At the same time, full-view telepresence adapts automatically, freely interconnecting with current widescreen products to provide a more flexible and reliable video communication service to businesses.
Using three-channel hi-fi audio technology, accurate audio localization, reproduction and lip syncing, full-view telepresence provides users with an exceptional live experience. Additionally, the wireless Android-based touch panel allows users to easily control the widescreen display system, hidden full-view camera, hi-fi three-channel audio system, smart overall structure system and lighting all at the touch of a button.
Compared to similar high bandwidth products, full-view telepresence can achieve high definition 1080p 60fps images on relatively low bandwidth, reducing bandwidth by 30% and greatly saving on user network investment.
As of 2011, global production of Huawei's telepresence technology surpassed 2,100 sets. Currently, Huawei telepresence is used by 45 governments and over 100 CXOs in 13 mainstream operators. Huawei is the number one telepresence provider in the Chinese market, and second globally.
Huawei's next generation full-view telepresence solution can be viewed at Huawei's booth, which is located at Hall 13, Booth C23. Its custom-built Container Data Centre is located at the open-air sites outside Halls 12 and 13. CeBIT is held from March 6 to 10, 2012, in Hanover, Germany.
