Why HD Video Communication for the
High Definition (HD) Video communication offers
the natural in-person communication experience

, HD video communication,
at truly affordable price, will give SMEs/SOHOs
to their businesses
as well as improve consumers?life quality
with distant learning, healthcare, and home care,
The problem is
, there are only
two extreme solutions available in the market
as of today:
- The pricey proprietary high-ends (incl.
those so-called “affordable solutions”):
dedicated video conferencing gear that looks
great, but costing thousands to tens of thousands
of dollars (if not hundreds of thousands),
with inflexible and costly data infrastructure.
- The impractical low-ends: standard webcam
costing tens to hundred dollars, together
with free PC-based video IM, deliver jerky
video and poor audio synch, and sessions either
connect at all or drop out just when you are
about to display a new tattoo or a new grandchild.
To take it to mass market, the obvious choice
is to leverage standard PC and equipment that
customers are familiar with (and already have)
to conduct real time HD (720p or above) video
communications. However, the challenges are
- Core2duo (or equivalent) CPU power cannot
handle real-time full duplex (encoding and
decoding) HD video (720p or above at 30fps)
communications, not to mention those single
- Webcams (even with those multi-million mega-pixel
lens) available today can send only poor quality
MJPEG (at CIF quality or VGA at best), making
it impossible to send 720p or above video
quality over the network.
- Typical unmanaged 1-2Mbps broadband network
cannot transmit stable HD video qualit.
As a result, it undermines the real potential
of HD Video communication to grow as an industry
and benefit the masses.
