Answered Question
Oct 1st, 2010

Hi,

Do you guys know when cisco is going to implement on its telepresence system the  H.264 High Profile? The competitor claims that with that technology they can get bandwidth savings of 50%.

I have this problem too.

Hi Mario,

As you know we have different BW requirement depending the system type and number of screens, our implementation of The High Profile adds quality features that contribute to either a higher quality at the same bitrate or bitrate savings at the same quality.

No change is being made to the supported resolutions or bitrates at this time.  The only change is a perceived quality increase in the pictures. When BW is a problem we offer 720 Lite and LTRP which was introduced in 1.6. As of our competitors will be interesting if they are still offering the same bitrate/quality as we do and if you have more specifics we can compare in more detail

Do you know if in the cisco implementation it reduces bandwidth usage by 50% also? Because on the release notes it just states that it get a higher picture quality and does not says anything about bandwidth savings. Do you know if there was any testing done for this purpose?
