Quanta Computer chooses Radvision for VC functionality

Radvision has forged a relationship with Quanta Computer to bolster its mobile video communications offering. The notebook computer manufacturer has opted for Radvision’s BEEHD video client for embedded tablet and desktop videoconferening.

The BEEHD video client framework will be used for Quanta’s "out-of-the box" video client functionality as well as its framework-level customisation flexibility.

This enabled Quanta developers to embed the Radvision technology into the Quanta devices. The Quanta UC application, called LiveHD, runs on desktop and laptop PCs and features an HD 720p/30fps video call experience as well as desktop-sharing and other advanced collaboration features. The LiveHD client turns any PC into a HD UC endpoint.

"We evaluated a number of technologies before deciding to standardize on the RADVISION solution," said Sagin Hsu, associate vice president, Quanta Innovation Center, Business Group of Cloud, Quanta Computer. "BEEHD offers a unique combination of innovation and simplicity from a development standpoint. Additionally, Rasvision’s H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) and NetSense bandwidth adaptation technology enable our video client to sustain a high quality experience regardless of network conditions."

Hsu added, "With this UC solution, Quanta is able to extend its offerings beyond hardware, enabling Quanta's customers to take advantage of LiveHD to empower their users to participate in effective lifelike video meetings regardless of their location and at a truly affordable price point."

The LiveHD video client includes interoperability with all standards-based H.323 and SIP video systems. Additionally, the client fully supports H.323 and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) technologies. The LiveHD client will reside on Quanta-manufactured notebooks and tablets.
