Flexible Video Conferencing
EASE OF USE
MULTIPLE SITE CONNECTION
The KX-VC1600 lets you hold a multi-site videoconference with people at up to 10 sites*1 without requiring the purchase of expensive MCUs (Multi-point Connection Units). When combined with Panasonic’s NAT Traversal Service or HD Visual Communication Mobile (HDVC Mobile) software that enables the use of mobile devices for participating in a videoconference, you can have effective visual communication without restrictions on time or place.
* Except for KX-VC300
* KX-VC300 comply with the H.264.
* Supported only by the KX-VC1600.
You can join a videoconference from a location outside of the office, while you are on the go, or from your own home using a Windows/iOS/Android™ mobile device. The HDVC System provides effective visual communication without restrictions on time or place.

OPTIMUM SCREEN LAYOUT
The HDVC System comes with a function that lets you choose a screen layout from a variety of options. For instance, you can select a screen layout to show all participating sites or to display the site with a high voice level in a large window (Window 1 in the layouts shown below). The most suitable screen layout can be selected according to the type of video conference held.
The screen layout changes automatically according to the number of connection sites.
* Positions of windows displaying sites are determined by the connecting order.
OTHER SCREEN LAYOUT FUNCTIONS

ORIGINAL PANASONIC AV-QOS
The HD Visual Communications System is packed with Panasonic technology for connection stability. A rate control function accurately estimates network congestion, and controls the data transfer amount to reduce packet loss. In addition, the combined usage of Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) helps to restore inevitable packet loss.
These functions make it possible to achieve a stable connection and prevent image disruptions and sound interruptions, both on intranets and on the Internet, where bandwidth is not guaranteed and the usable bandwidth constantly changes due to traffic conditions. The range of business opportunities naturally expands because of the ability to conduct visual communication with clients and customers outside the company.
