|InterCall Announces New Video Capabilities of Webcast Studio
InterCall announced a raft of new video capabilities for its webcasting platform. The new video capabilities will allow webcast hosts to provide video quality that matches the commercial broadcast sources without requiring extra bandwidth or over-burdening network resources. With new edition of Webcast Studio, users can use webcams, video feeds and HD videoconferencing units to deliver high-definition video to the desktop during their conferences. It supports organic HD via a webcam and enhances the attendees’ experience by providing resolution of up to 720p.
“As people encounter high-definition video in their personal lives, they expect the same level of performance from desktop video at work. While other webcasting tools claim to be HD and use HD tools on the broadcast end, they’re still delivering just standard video to the desktop. InterCall Webcast Studio breaks that barrier by delivering a full HD experience to users on their devices,” said Mike Nessler, Executive Vice President of InterCall Event Services. Read more..
