Panasonic Japan announced a video-conferencing system dubbed the KX-VC500. It will allow you to use HD-quality screens for communicating. It’s pretty interesting and takes the video conference to a new level. Connections will be made over the web and allow for HD-quality video going both ways.
It doesn’t come with a microphone and a camera however, so you’ll have to use an HD camera of your own choosing. You can use the unit with any HD screen and it has an RGB interface and two HDMI ports. A remote control is included.
At the moment it will only be available in Japan. The KX-VC500 arrives there on October 1. Nothing on price yet.
