Simplifying Business - The new HD Visual Communications (HDVC) System connects to multiple sites for videoconferences with minimal installation costs. You can also use mobile device to take part in a video conference from location away from your company. The HDVC system realizes effective visual communication without restrictions on time or place. It flexibly responds to a wide range of communication needs in various fields, such as education, manufacturing, healthcare, finance and sales.
Mobile, home and remote workers can participate in meetings with the use of a Windows PC/iOS/Android™ mobile device. The HDVC System provides effective visual communication without restrictions on time or place.
*Activation Key is required to use the software.
The Panasonic HDVC System can connect via intranet/VPN and Internet simultaneously, making it easy to configure a videoconference system connected to sites inside and outside of the company. The HDVC System can be used to hold videoconferences with clients without a large investment in equipment.
*Supported only by the KX-VC1600
HDVC-MPCS (multi-point connection software) allows 12-site or 16-site configuration to meet the user’s multi-site videoconferencing needs. The number of connection sites can be increased from 12 to 16 after the product purchase.
* A server is required for multi-site connection.
The HDVC System delivers high-resolution Full-HD 1080/60p images at an IP rate of approximately 1.5 Mbps. Displayed images are as clear as Full-HD TV images and allow for effective visual communication. The HDVC System shows even small changes in facial expressions for high-quality communication. When combined with the GP-VD151/GP-VD131, the HD Communication Camera delivers smooth, high-resolution 1080/60p Full-HD images.
Full-duplex audio in wideband stereo allows high-quality sound to fill the room with clarity. A unique Echo Canceller prevents echoes and howling, and there are minimal delays or interruptions even when two people speak at the same time. Smooth, natural conversations can be enjoyed as if all participants were in the same room. The HDVC System has four compact built-in microphones. A direction recognition function reflects the direction and position of the speaker’s voice to the listener’s side speakers.
Generation of packet losses is prevented by the rate control, and lost packets are restored by the combined use of the forward error correction and automatic repeat request control. Even if the bandwidth decreases after communication starts, clear communication is maintained according to the communication line condition. Because video and audio communications are maintained at 256 kbps per site, there is minimum image disruptions and audio interruptions, and the connection stays stable.
The HDVC System supports H.239 dual streaming to simultaneously transmit the home location image and a PC document image, while receiving the image of a distant site and a PC document image. The KX-VC1600 features a Triple Monitor function*, which can display a PC document, the image of a distant site and the image of the home location separately on three monitors. Display of a PC document on a large screen facilitates understanding and provides effective visual communication.
* The KX-VC1300 supports Dual Monitor.
The remote control of the HDVC System allows for the control of the pan, tilt and zoom operations of dedicated cameras mounted at the home location and a distant site. A PC and sub camera can be easily switched with a single press of the button. The remote control features a user-friendly button layout just like that on a TV remote control, thus allowing for intuitive operation.

The HDVC System comes with a function that allows for a choice of screen layouts from a variety of options. For instance, a screen layout can be selected 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 videoconference held. The screen layout changes automatically according to the number of connection sites.
* Positions of windows displaying sites are determined by the connecting order.
