PeopleLink is CEO's #1 choice TelePresence & HD VideoConferencing Solution
PeopleLink TelePresence & HD Video Conference Solution, is one of the worlds Largest Network Based Video Conference Infrastructure Solution. It offers High levels of Scalability and flexibility, allowing you to from 2 to 1000 Locations into a Single Conference Room, from anywhere across the world over the internet, Intranet or any kind of wired or wireless Network. You can connect to a Video Conference from a Board Room, Conference Room or be it an airport, hotel, car or even your Home. The following context serves as a VC buying guide, which facilitate the users in cross checking the key points or functionalities before buying an optimal video conferencing solution.
PeopleLink uses the state of the Art Compression Technology H.264VBR which requires minimum bandwidth for running smooth Video and Audio ( Even at 128Kbps uplink downlink performance is Best in the Industry, Ideally we recommend 256Kbps uplink and downlink ) and most importantly it intelligently utilizes bandwidth only when it is required and takes off the Load from the network. For Audio we use GIPS which requires only 6.4Kbps bandwidth.
PeopleLink has Dual IP Configuration capability in MCU which allows you to configure both public and private IP so that internet and MPLS network VC users can talk to each other.
One of the Biggest advantages of PeopleLink is, it de-limits the boundaries of location based Video Conference. You just need to pay for MCU (Concurrent locations which you need to connect at a time) and you don’t need to wait for future to make all your branch offices, Franchises and travelling staff to be video conference ready even by paying for 5 locations MCU all locations can do VC by downloading the free software client and scheduling different time on MCU.
We have a Web based GUI and which can be completely managed remotely from anywhere. Deploying the MCU takes as low as few minutes time.
PeopleLink has inbuilt H.323 and SIP Gateway to connect any device seamlessly (like Polycom, Tandberg, etc):
PeopleLink has inbuilt Fully Interactive Digital White Board with all Annotations (Laser Pointer, Highlighter, Hand Marker, Multicolor Markers) which can be used for Internal training. PeopleLink has now launched a Wireless Pen (PeopleLink iPen) which fully integrates with the solution and you can write on the white board from as long as 30ft. This completely eliminates the need of Expensive Interactive White Boards. PeopleLink also has the capability to share Presentations and Documents simultaneously along with showing Multiple Videos (not by replacing videos like many other products where one can see either a presentation or a video).
PeopleLink PRO has inbuilt Dual Display function which can do this functionality.
Unlike Hardware based Video Conferencing Solution where you need to junk your old investment whether it is hardware based MCU or end point. PeopleLink is fully Obsolescence proof solution. PeopleLink VC has three major products and few optional modules.
Three products primarily comprise of:
PeopleLink Pro 480P
PeopleLink PRO HD 720P
PeopleLink Telepresence 1080P
Each one is upgradable to higher version by paying difference amount which is fraction of a cost, at any moment. All the new features which PeopleLink introduces are upgradable at any time by paying upgrade fee. PeopleLink also has optional Modules Like, SIP Gateway, PSTN Gateway, VOIP Gateway, and Multifunction TV Wall which can be upgraded at anytime.
PeopleLink has broadcasting license option which is priced at 1/8th of full user license. With this license balance 90 locations can log into the conference and will be able to hear and see the entire meeting but cannot talk. This will solve your purpose.
PeopleLink has different Audio and Video Devices which get integrated with the Solution to cater to all kind of needs. Individual users can use inbuilt webcam and mic of Laptops or Webcams and Clearone Chat 50 audio device. For small meeting rooms we have PeopleLink i5 HD Web cam with PJP 20UR audio device. For board rooms we have PeopleLink 500sg PTZ Camera with 10xoptical and 10x digital zoom with 360 degree rotation and PeopleLink HD 1080P PTZ Camera for HD Video Conference and Telepresence rooms and Professional Echo Cancellation Audio mixers with multiple mics and speaker capability and for Auditorium we can connect Multiple PTZ Cameras for Large Audience coverage etc.
PeopleLink has in built recording feature to record (Audio, Video and data) and also Option of Playing Video Files (supports almost all formats) which can be broadcasted to each location.
Peoplelink has the flexibility to design a Telepresence Solution or HD solution, when you need. You don’t need to junk the old product just need to pay for the balance components and modules.
PeopleLink gives you the flexibility to upgrade in multiples of 1 and not forcing you to buy what you don’t need.
PeopleLink has Optional PSTN Module with which you can invite the participants who don’t have internet availability into the Video Conference by Telephone Line for at least audio conference calls.
People link has optional Modules like SIP and VOIP, through these features employees can be able to join the Video conference through at least audio mode by SIP or VOIP services at cheaper rates.
PeopleLink has the Capability of Grouping that means split Multi location VC into small virtual groups for interdepartmental short meetings within the same conference so that a common view point on a topic can be reached by each department and shared with management. During grouping although all departments are logged in on a same MCU but after grouping only each department can hear the audio of each other no one can hear what other department people are talking. Once they are again ungrouped then all are again the part of the VC call.
PeopleLink has the option to lock down the conference so that even someone knows the password they cannot enter into the confidential meeting session.
As an Administrator you have option to send text Announcement message on every meeting attendee as a reminder without barging into the meeting and without creating disturbance.
PeopleLink has special privileges give to the Moderator like Moderator can Mute all or particular participant, dismiss someone from the conference who is creating nuisance, Forcibly sync Video Layouts so that all participants are on the common page.
Peoplelink has 2 options available for the same one is Secret Ballot like Creating Polling Sessions with multiple options where participants can give their opinions freely and no one will know who has voted what and Management will get exact unbiased opinions. 2nd option is Referendums , this is used in case a quick yes or no is expected as an answer and consolidated report as how many participants are in favor will be displayed quickly as a result.
PeopleLink has inbuilt Point to Point Video Conference Module which participants can be seen online and you can make quick point to point Video Conference calls without using the MCU ports. This also saves the cost of MCU Ports to be purchased.
PeopleLink has Composite TV Wall functionality / Telepresence module which have the possibility of showing Each Location in Separate LCD/plasma so that every participant in a Board room is clearly visible and the Cost of Spending on Video Wall is also saved. Total up to 16 LCD/Plasmas can be connected.
Peoplelink Solution has a web browser inbuilt which you can call IP Surveillance cameras into the VC Solution.
PeopleLink has an extra Module which is called HOT STANDBY OPTION. This module allows you to create mirror MCU and with Floating IP configuration in case the MCU fails, Mirror MCU Automatically take-up within few seconds.
In case of any other Competition MCU Solution you need to invest equivalent money for a backup MCU system and then also it won’t have hot standby option that it can automatically takeover.
We have a Voice activated switching version which gives 8 Video Screen, One Big Video and 7 small size videos. Whichever location talks that locations Video Comes in big screen and even though 100 locations are in the conference only 8 videos can be seen and make sure that Location which is talking is always been seen and locations which have been idle for long time get replaced by new voice activated video. Also using Multiple Displays (where 3 to 16 displays are used) we can have Location which is talking that Video will go on a Full Screen mode to a separate Display automatically.
PeopleLink has State of the Art Master/Slave Architecture, where you can have centralized MCU at HO and you can buy slave server licenses and create the Mirror of Mater MCU at each regional office and international office by linking them with Master MCU’s IP. All regional locations can log into the slave MCU without going to the HO MCU and thus save on the bandwidth and reduces the latency.
