SAN DIEGO, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online services innovator Nefsis provided
commentary today on the expanding roll of cloud computing in the video conferencing industry. Cloud computing is enabling a new generation of video conferencing online services such as Nefsis to provide HD video quality with the ease-of-use of browsing the Web. This new product category - online video conferencing - fills the void between free consumer-oriented video calling services such as Skype and its opposite extreme, installed-site telepresence systems costing hundreds of thousands of dollars per installation. Now, business users can turn to cloud-based services for more video, collaboration, and secure conference controls than those of unsecure, simple video calls, but without the heavy investment telepresence requires.
"Businesses no longer have to face a choice between low-quality video calling services and telepresence installations, now they can get business-grade HD video quality and the anytime, anywhere convenience of the cloud," said Tom Toperczer, Nefsis Vice President of Marketing.
Nefsis officials commented further that the combination of distributed cloud technology that virtualizes conferences in close proximity to users, end-to-end parallel processing leveraging all available processor cores, and the use of off-the-shelf webcams and conference room cameras, provides high-performance video and lower cost. Not all cloud-based video conferencing solutions offer these advantages.
Nefsis offers a full-featured, free trial available now at Nefsis.com. Trial users can easily test and implement a wide variety of HD and multipoint video conferencing systems using almost any video peripheral and existing Internet access. Nefsis scalable video and automated bandwidth throttling adapts to the customer's network. Nefsis also offers built-in diagnostic tools and a full-suite of IT controls that govern user access, security, and video features.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Nefsis is a technology specialist in video conferencing software and cloud computing online services. The Company's global cloud provides multipoint HD video and advanced collaboration tools to business, government and educational customers in more than 45 countries worldwide. As compared to previous generations of infrastructure hardware solutions such as video routers, MCUs and gateways, the Nefsis cloud-based offering is less expensive, automatically maintained, and easier to expand.
