PCS-G60D (PCSG60D)Discontinued

Visual communications system

Overview

The PCS-G60D is a compact and affordable videoconferencing system, with consistent high resolution video and clear stereo audio
This powerful videoconferencing system features consistent high quality video and audio and can be used with up to ten conference sites. It is stylish and compact, easy to set up and to operate and can be used to display both video and presentation data from your PC.
High quality pictures and superb audio
With H.264 high profile support, the PCS-G60D achieves higher picture quality at a lower bandwidth rate and clear and natural stereo sound using the MPEG-4 AAC compression format. Enhanced Intelligent QoS Functions ensure stable, secure communication.
Supports up to ten videoconferencing sites
Using optional MCU software, the PCS-G60D can be configured to communicate between six videoconferencing sites, which can be cascaded to support up to 10 simultaneous sites.
Send data from your PC
With support for the ITU-T H.239 standard, this system can send video and presentation data from your PC display to all participants in your videoconference.

Features

High picture quality, even with low bandwidth
With H.264 High Profile support, This system achieves higher picture quality at a lower bandwidth rate than PCS-G50/G70 Series systems. Furthermore, the PCS-G60D receives up to 720p resolution video.
Superb audio quality
The PCS-G60D produces clear and natural stereo sound, using the MPEG-4 AAC compression format. With a built-in stereo echo canceller, which eliminates the annoying echo often heard with other systems, communication sounds far more natural.
Multi-point conferencing at up to ten sites
Using optional PCSA-MCG80 MCU software, the PCS-G60D can be configured to communicate simultaneously with up to 5 remote videoconferencing sites (6 sites in total), using an IP (H.323 protocol) connection. Moreover, two PCS-G60D units – each installed with optional MCU software – can be cascaded with an IP connection to support a maximum of 10 simultaneous sites.
Advanced data sharing
With support for the ITU-T H.239 (video and presentation data) standard, the PCS-G60D can send your PC display to all participants in your videoconference. Presentation data can be transferred at frame rates as high as 30 fps, so they appear natural and smooth even when they include animation effects or video from your PC. This presentation data can also be projected, or shown on a sub display, using the RGB output.
Stable, secure videoconferencing
When you conduct your videoconference over a network, a common concern is how to maintain video and audio quality through constantly changing network performance. The PCS-G60D incorporates QoS functions for fast and consistent data throughput during the transmission of video signals, by adapting to any changes in network condition, and correcting any packet loss.
Annotate shared data
For effective communication, the PCS-G60D offers a useful video annotation function. Conference participants can clearly point out specific parts of shared data, including live images and presentation data, simply by writing on a tablet. This function helps to minimise the time and effort required to communicate, enabling everyone to deliver clear, strong messages.
Simple set up and easy operation
The PCS-G60D has been meticulously designed with an intuitive GUI, which includes a simple layer structure with translucent cascading menus. This provides simple functionality – users find it very easy to operate the entire videoconferencing system, including the camera.
One touch dialling
For user convenience, the PCS-G60D adopts an RF Remote Commander unit which you do not have to point directly towards the system. What’s more, the PCS-G60D has a convenient One-touch Dialling feature, which allows you to easily connect to any of your registered contacts just by pushing the function button on the RF Remote Commander unit that corresponds to a thumbnail image on the GUI.
