open concept: Multi-Point Video-conferencing
often referred, as teleconferencing, is a full or limited motion two-way
video delivered in conjunction with two-way audio communication. Both
client and server control the presentation on all monitors. Usually broadcast
over a high capacity communication system due to the high bandwidth demands
video conferencing is a full or limited motion multi-way video delivered
in conjunction with multi-way audio communication.
The ZEM client
software has a multi-point video conferencing (VC) engine. The idea of
VC is that it lets you bring teams of colleagues together simultaneously
to work and communicate on the shared telepathology application.
not only enhances your PC's existing capabilities with audio conferencing
and videoconferencing, but also enables you to share your existing PC
applications. That means you can exchange documents interactively and
access informations while you are online.
are the advantages?
in a session can communicate with each other real-time, discussing the
microscope images that are shown in a different window on the same screen.
- The ZEM
software allows multiple participants communicate with each other at
the same time.
- ZEM Technology
is using the so-called Desktop Video Conferencing System. This is the
most economic of the three basic types and is now being promoted by
Intel and Apple. In its simplest form, this system involves setting
up a camera, monitor, microphone, and loudspeaker in two rooms and connecting
them together on a computer network. The multipoint technology of the
ZEM software is a unique feature: there is no limitation in linking
the amount of users to each other.
- Any hardware-system
that has a 'Video for Windows' driver installed, is supported. There
is no need to purchase additional (dedicated, expensive) equipment.
This covers most conferencing cameras, web-cams and frame grabbers.
The advantage is that standard computers can be configured in no time
in order to participate to a session.
- The ZEM
systems use technologies (various CODECS) that optimise the use of bandwidth.
