Panasonic_3d_Videoconferencing.jpgPanasonic has announced a 3D capability in its HD Visual Communications System (HDVC). The system will capture and transmit 3D images to 3D capable display systems.  No suggested display solutions have been announced at this time nor an estimated price. The system will not be released until the fall.  Users will need to have a 3D capable Panasonic HDVC systems on each side of the call to utilize the 3D capability .  Panasonic is the 2nd visual collaboration company to demonstrate 3D visual collaboration after Teliris announced the industry's first solution in June 2010 at the InfoComm show.
Panasonic promises that 3D will add an enhanced depth of field to the HDVC  for greater clarity and realism.  The myriad manufacturing applications include real time viewing of computer aided design (CAD) schematics to make details pop and offer an enhanced viewing perspective.
"Panasonic 3D HDVC offers greater real time collaboration and realism impossible to experience with traditional 2D video conferencing," said Bill Taylor, president of Panasonic System Networks Company of America.  "As a worldwide leader in 3D technology, Panasonic is proud to bring the power of 3D to our advanced HDVC solution."
The Panasonic HDVC system is scalable, meaning it allows for Full HD images to be displayed on a wide range of HD monitors, from desktop LCDs all the way up to a 152-inch class HD Plasma display, or even projected with an HD projector. The system also allows for multiple HD cameras to be utilized, so a second camera can zoom in and share detailed images such as solder joints, chips on printed circuit boards, manufacturing lines, or even close-up details during medical procedures.
