Nefsis Multicore Parallel Processing Accelerates
Business Video Conferencing


Not your grandfather’s video conferencing — cloud computing and parallel processing make multipoint HD video with live sharing fast and fluid over existing networks and personal computers

SAN DIEGO — August 5, 2011 — Online services innovator Nefsis® provided commentary today on the key role played by its parallel processing software in delivering multipoint HD video conferencing sessions to business users over existing networks and personal computers. The latest generation of video conferencing technology — including parallel processing, cloud computing, and dynamic scalable video — powers Nefsis easy-to-use online services putting secure, high-quality video conferencing sessions within the reach of virtually any employee at any size business.

As a video conferencing application grows to multiple external participants and more advanced live sharing tools, so does the requirement for more network infrastructure components such as multichannel units, desktop gateway and collaboration servers. Cloud-computing eliminates these infrastructure requirements by providing all these capabilities over shared resources in the cloud. In addition to eliminating these infrastructure components, Nefsis further accelerates multipoint HD video conferencing by virtualizing conference rooms closer to participants and applying its end-to-end, parallel processing software technology.

“This is not your grandfather’s video conferencing, limited to large corporate boardrooms only. Now virtually anybody can enjoy business-grade, high-quality video with live sharing anywhere they have Internet access,” said Allen Drennan, Nefsis Chief Technology Officer.

Nefsis uses software parallelism at each software end-point and virtual conference server. The cloud-delivered software uses all available cores for encoding, decoding, and display of video and live sharing data, among other tasks. In addition, the software leverages Intel® MMX™/SSE/SIMD processor extensions, further accelerating video performance. Over 95% of new desktop computer shipments include dual core processors or better, and virtually 100% include processors with multimedia extensions. Now, even telepresence-style, multipoint HD video conferencing is available to almost anyone using Nefsis and standard, off-the-shelf peripheral devices.

Nefsis multi-core parallel processing is a standard feature of its online service. For a free 14-day trial of Nefsis Professional, visit www.Nefsis.com.
