Panasonic Introduces 2 Cutting-Edge High Def Visual Communications Systems
ORLANDO, FL -June 15, 2011 – Panasonic today announced the introduction of its next generation High Definition Visual Communications (HDVC) Systems, which will be unveiled at InfoComm, June 15 -17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL at Panasonic Booth #3829 . The two new models, KX-VC600 and KX-VC300, use low bandwidth to deliver a stunning Full HD experience with life-like audio and video. The systems are interoperable with other brands of video conferencing devices. The currently available KX-VC500 is also interoperable with other devices through a free software upgrade.
“Panasonic is building upon the success of its ground-breaking first system, with two models designed to bring high-quality video conferencing to more businesses,” said Bill Taylor, President of Panasonic System Networks Company of America.” The KX-VC600 and KX-VC300 HD Visual Communications systems are designed to be versatile and practical, with simple set-up and operation. They are portable and highly efficient, allowing businesses to conduct productive real-time collaboration while minimizing the business disruption of travel.”
As the fastest growing collaboration technology, video conferencing facilitates real-time, face-to-face communications. Panasonic is leading the way in this powerful HD technology, enabling businesses to maximize productivity and increase revenue. The two new cutting-edge Panasonic HDVC systems are easy to set up and operate and include an array of features that facilitate outstanding visual and voice communication.
Features of the KX-VC600 and KX-VC300 include:
Easy operation – Panasonic’s systems are easy to set up and use. Operation is simple and does not require an IT expert each time you want to initiate a video conference.
Stable connection – ensures smooth and reliable image and sound transmission

Compact and lightweight design – the VC600 and VC300 main units occupy 54% less volume than the VC500 and weigh in at a lightweight 4.4 lbs, making the units extremely portable so you can take them wherever you need to have a video conference.

Charts, graphs and other important content on a PC can be easily viewed by all parties for efficient business communication.
