NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 01/18/2011 - BrightCom announces a reduction in entry price to the ClearView HD Desktop Video Conferencing offering. The HD video solution provides users HD clarity and on-board H.264 video encoding, offloading the amount of processing power a PC needs to provide.

BrightCom, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing announced today a new offering of the ClearView HD Desktop Video Conferencing solution. The HD video conferencing system includes on-board H.264 video encoding, built in acoustic echo cancellation, array microphone and HD clarity.

BrightCom offers a wide range of telepresence and video conferencing endpoints for the home, and conference room. ClearView Desktop HD provides a USB based camera that contains the necessary power for high definition communication and hands-free audio. Additionally, ClearView Desktop HD's H.264 on-board video encoding offloads the amount of processing power a PC needs to utilize when using a video encoding card. As seen in the new YouTube video, communication is simple, fast and clear.

Upon it's release in November of 2010, BrightCom officials stated that the offering price was less that $500.00 beating competitor solutions including Cisco's UMI and LifeSize's Passport. Now the current reduction in price provides an even greater gap.

The ClearView Desktop HD system can work easily with many conferencing systems. However, BrightCom's Visual Collaboration System enhances the offering with integrated HD video and data conferencing, allowing users to share and edit a wide variety of media including documents, PDFs, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. The VCS, a processor-based telepresence and video conferencing infrastructure, allows for an unlimited number of participants on a meeting with up to 16 participants displayed.
