Most traditional videoconferencing solutions are built for videoconferences between two or three locations. By adding VBrick's line of MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 encoders and decoders, customers are distributing videoconference sessions live over corporate Intranets and the Internet to interested stakeholders' PCs and TVs alike. With VBrick's solutions, videoconferences are no longer confined to stations with fixed equipment nor restricted to the time constraints of available participants.
For example, by utilizing a VBrick network video appliance, organizations can turn standard videoconferencing feeds into an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video stream. That stream can be broadcast over a corporate intranet where it can reach employees right at their desktops through VBrick's StreamPlayer viewer. For even greater reach, an organization can use a VBXcast, VBrick's MPEG-4 video appliance, to stream a session over the public Internet where users anywhere can view sessions on their desktops.
Using a Video-on-Demand (VOD) server with a VBrick encoder enables videoconference sessions to be stored and retrieved for archival and later review. This ensures that an accurate record of a videoconference is available for review by conference participants.
