Huntington Beach, CA (News - Alert) - April 7, 2010 - BrightCom, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions, announced its underlying architecture for the Visual Collaboration System (VCS), the BrightCom Media Framework, will be the first telepresence and video conferencing infrastructure to allow real time, live video editing and other applications such as augmented reality. This new framework will ultimately lead to new applications for industry specific and general business communication.

In a recent whitepaper, BrightCom stated, "BrightCom will expand upon [the VCS] multimedia framework and pave the way for future generations of the VCS to include specific functions that enable teams of people around the world to interact with video and data in unique applications for video conferencing such as key framing and augmented reality. Participants will be able to collaboratively edit live streams of video and overlay data on video streams, allowing for new ways of communicating, interacting and comprehending information." BrightCom's VCS is a processor based, software driven, conferencing infrastructure for telepresence and videoconferencing solutions that enables businesses with a single access point for BrightCom, SIP enabled and web camera endpoints. Currently, the underlying media framework allows the recently released VCS 2.6 to expand participants' ability to share and co-edit data with a full set of web conferencing tools along side participant video and audio. Support for a wider range of high resolution video clips enables businesses to share and interact with different types of business data in real-time.

According to Bob McCandless, CEO of BrightCom, "The telepresence and video conferencing industry is lacking the next steps towards a higher level of collaboration. Data in video conferencing today is mostly locked up in H.239 data streaming. The VCS gives businesses a more interactive conferencing experience allowing both data and live video to be equally important to get the job done. Future versions of the VCS will be able to increase the everyday applications of telepresence for a more robust experience that merges data with live video like never before." BrightCom's white paper sites examples of industry application use of future versions of the VCS.


"For example, imagine a video broadcast of a fashion designer with high definition images of their designs overlaid on real-time video broadcasts of their models connecting to fashion magazine editors, and press representatives in Milan, New York and Tokyo. Manufacturing businesses can benefit by displaying CAD diagram blueprints overlaid on the quality control teams video broadcast for instructional brainstorming sessions for product development. This technology could also prove advantageous for the film and entertainment industry as film editors are able to edit high resolution film clips with other editors, producers and directors at any time from around the world."
