Tandberg Unveils HD Laptop Videoconferencing

Tandberg recently conducted its first public preview of its new mobile HD videoconferencing technology.

Tandberg recently conducted its first public preview of its new mobile HD videoconferencing technology.

According to Tandberg, the company demonstrated a business-quality videoconference calls at 720p resolution using the Tandberg PrecisionHD camera operating on an Intel Mobile Core 2 Quad laptop, formerly codenamed "Montevina," running Tandberg's Movi software. The laptop also ran other applications while simultaneously engaging in HD PC videoconference calls.

"While other vendors offer consumer-acceptable PC videoconferencing, we have demonstrated the video quality that businesses require to adopt PC video communications," said Fredrik Halvorsen, Tandberg CEO, in a statement. "This move..enables mobile workers to achieve the increased trust and faster decision-making already experienced by users of desktop and room-based videoconferencing and telepresence systems."

Movi, Tandberg's PC videoconferencing solution, allows teleworkers, transit commuters, remote workers, and business travelers to participate in face-to-face meetings and conversations, says the company. Available in early 2009, Movi is based on videoconferencing industry standards that make it possible to connect people with coworkers using any standards-compliant telepresence, conference room videoconferencing, or executive desktop video system.

"The Intel Mobile Core 2 Quad mobile processor not only provides the performance headroom for high-definition videoconferencing on laptops, but it is able to execute the demanding workloads and applications running concurrently, making it a compelling solution for businesses today," said Dadi Perlmutter, executive vice president and general manager, Intel Mobility Group. "Working with the Intel software team, Tandberg was able to take advantage of the optimizing tools to provide high-definition videoconferencing with low-CPU utilization."
