Nefsis® Expands Scalable Video Coding for Windows 7

Nefsis expands scalability across its video conferencing cloud,
plus multi-core processing and scalable video coding at each participant

San Diego, California — July 23, 2010 — Recent shipments of Windows 7 for business, comprised almost entirely of multi-core systems, showcase Nefsis scalable video conferencing capabilities for business applications. Nefsis delivers high-quality HD video to Windows 7 desktops by expanding video scalability in three ways: across its worldwide server cloud; across multiple processing cores at each participant's personal computer; and through the use of scalable video coding. With this technology advance virtually any business can enjoy high quality video conferencing that was once the exclusive domain of expensive boardroom installations.

Nefsis scalable video coding is a form of variable bit-rate processing that allows customers to use any Internet connection type, including shared connections whose bit-rate changes in real-time. By further abstracting hardware-specifics, scalable video coding (SVC) also plays a key role in letting Nefsis customers pick any plug-n-play webcam or HD video peripheral. The Nefsis encoding process maximizes video quality within the user's camera capabilities and bandwidth in real-time. A single slow connection or low-end camera does not degrade the conferencing experience for other participants. Nefsis SVC, together with multi-core processing, powers the fluid motion and exceptional picture quality seen in Nefsis video conferences.

The Nefsis product is available as installable software and online service with support for Windows 7, 32 and 64-bit editions. Customers that seek an instant-on solution can take advantage of the Nefsis online service cloud. The Nefsis cloud further improves video conferencing performance by selecting the best nearby server for each video conference.

"Your entry-level Windows 7 desktop ships with two processor cores, with four and eight processors seeing more popularity among business IT shops. These are ideal platforms to showcase multi-core concurrency in Nefsis," said Allen Drennan, Nefsis Founder and Chief Technology Officer. "Software concurrency plus scalable video coding means no hardware-based multichannel units and affordable, high-quality video conferencing almost anywhere you have an Internet connection," he concluded.
