Nefsis Cloud-Based HD Video Conferencing Offers Affordable Alternative to Telepresence
Feb 10, 2011 (04:02 PM EST)
SAN DIEGO, February 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Nefsis® announced today its HD Promo Pack for business. Nefsis is a technology innovator that uses cloud computing to deliver video conferencing online services to desktops and rooms. Nefsis supports HD 720p webcams and HD 1080p conference room cameras. The Promo Pack includes special offers on license activation and free set-up assistance and training. The announcement highlights Nefsis cloud computing and multipoint HD video conferencing as the affordable alternative to point-to-point telepresence systems.
Company officials noted that the difference between multipoint HD and telepresence is the latter's use of a single-purpose room, specialized furniture, and a physical conference room build-out to create an immersive experience. Otherwise, they are both multipoint HD.
Small- and mid-sized businesses that do not want to dedicate a purpose-built room can easily activate a Nefsis Professional online service subscription and get multipoint HD video conferencing at the same display specifications – high definition – as a telepresence studio costing $250,000. Sufficient bandwidth is required, same as telepresence.
The Nefsis cloud offers several advantages over point-to-point telepresence systems. Nefsis has fully integrated, advanced collaboration tools such as annotation, playing movie files, and electronic hand-outs. In addition, Nefsis can reach desktops without the addition of infrastructure hardware. Its feature capabilities and firewall traversal are all in the cloud. Few, if any, telepresence systems can match Nefsis cloud-based collaboration tools and desktop reach.
"Nefsis highlights the advantages of cloud computing. The alternative approach to solving firewall and proxy traversal for business desktop users is buying infrastructure hardware," said Tom Toperczer, Nefsis Vice President of Marketing. "Throwing hardware at multipoint conferencing was the 1990's approach. The new IT strategy is cloud computing –all the heavy processing occurs on shared servers in the cloud – where it's far cheaper and easier to maintain," he added.
The Nefsis HD Promo Pack is available now. HD webcams and conference room pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras are sold separately via promotional partners. Interested parties are invited to contact Nefsis sales for details.
