The VTEL IPanel Dual 5000 is an H.323 standards-based videoconferencing system which also features the ability to run Skype®, or any other PC-based mode of videoconferencing. The unique ability of the VTEL IPanel to interoperate with Cisco and Polycom systems, as well as Skype, is invaluable for organizations with a need to connect to disparate endpoints globally. The breakthrough price of under $5,000 for a boardroom caliber system finally enables small and medium enterprises to deploy a Fortune 500 caliber solution and benefit from avoided travel costs.
“Our resellers are reporting overwhelming demand for professional quality group videoconferencing systems which fulfill an end-user’s need to conduct an H.323 videocall or a Skype® videocall effortlessly as the need arises for either mode, said Richard Ford, VTEL’s CEO. VTEL’s engineers have leveraged our unique camera and on-screen display control technology to enable a professional group quality videocall using essentially any mode of video connectivity.”
Because of the underlying Windows 7 architecture of the VTEL IPanel the system is useful in a classroom or conference room even when not in a videocall. The IPanel may be used to display websites, stream video, play a DVD, run any enterprise PC software, such as PowerPoint, or for conventional HDTV viewing.
“VTEL experienced a surge in demand during 2012 due to the unmatched versatility of our turnkey IPanel product line. The availability of our new Dual 50” Display IPanel system at the $4,995 price point addresses the huge latent demand for a turnkey solution which exceeds the capabilities of competitor’s systems that typically cost well over $20 thousand, continued Mr. Ford.”
