AddPac Technology, an industry leader in the development, manufacture, and marketing of extended range VoIP, Video Conference, IP broadcasting solutions, releases a next generation MCU(Multipoint Conferencing Unit) which is a hardware type, state-of-the-art equipment for multipoint video conferencing and real-time collaborative IP communications over any IP network. It is a central processing solution which provides a wide variety of features such as easy and high level conference control, user-friendly screen/layout management, powerful audio/video mixing, transcoding and switching capability through reliable real-time encoding and decoding of transmitted data from multiple endpoints.
AP-MC1000 provides a complete solution specifically for large video conferences with multiple sites participating which are implemented technically by connecting mixed audio/video data stream from independent terminals to single 'virtual group' for central mixing and transcoding process. Designed on the basis of firmware upgradeable high performance DSP, AP-MC1000 supports not only latest audio/video codec currently but has capabilities of new codec services leveraging continuous firmware level upgrade. AP-MC1000 is also a key component of a comprehensive solution combined with AddPac's terminal equipments such as AP-VG1000, AP-VG2000 for multipoint video conferencing, which provides easy-to-use user interfaces, robust performance and excellent video quality.
Hardware Type Central Processing MCU with Robust Performance
AP-MC1000 MCU system for multipoint video conferencing features two(2) Fast Ethernet interfaces, a RS-232C console port for maintenance and two(2) hardware module slots for optional card. Hardware based MCU module( HIM-MCU4 ) and diverse network interface(V.35, ATM, POS) modules can be equipped in AP-MC1000's module slot interface. Designed on the foundation of parallel DSP architecture for real-time processing, MCU module provides a full suit of functionality for rich multipoint video conferencing experience including a wide range of transcoding coverage from voice band G.711, G.726 audio to audio/video signals. In addition, MCU processing capacity can be increased by 4 channels for high-resolution video processing and one or more AP-MC1000s can be cascaded to provide larger video conferencing among additional terminals or for network considerations.
Adapt to the Future Circumstances : Firmware upgradeable technology
Designed on programmable high performance RISC CPU and DSP, AP-MC1000 and its MCU module are capable of adopting new capabilities and improvement by downloading firmware from website or with its auto-upgrade option as the customers' needs grow. Moreover, the latest video codec, H.264 is also implemented on firmware level which is capable of new codec services along with currently supported MPEG-4 and H.263.
Excellent Video Quality on the basis of parallel DSP architecture
AP-MC1000 is designed on the basis of parallel DSP architecture with the highest level processing capabilities for high-resolution multipoint video conferencing. In case of MPEG-4, AP-MC1000 supports max 30 frames of VGA(640¡¿480) images ensuring unmatched video quality.
Seamless Interoperability : Supporting Diverse Concurrent Codec&Protocol
AP-MC1000 supports diverse video and voice codecs concurrently which is ordinarily being used on video terminals. It supports mixed IP video calls to enable the powerful mixing/transcoding capabilities among diverse audio/video codecs simultaneously providing the optimal video experience.
Multipoint Video Conferencing Solution with Outstanding Network Service Capability
AP-MC1000 is an integrated, feature-rich network equipment delivering routing, NAT/PAT, DHCP Server/Relay, Public IP sharing, VRRP and QoS. In today's mixed network of xDSL, Cable, FTTH, Metro Ethernet, Metro ATM, Leased line and dynamic IP environment, not only the ample network service features, but also high-end QoS(Quality of Service) and security features are requested. Based on two(2) 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports, AP-MC1000 offers integrated network and security service of LAN-to-LAN routing, bridge and NAT/PAT.
Audio/Video Privacy Protection
AP-MC1000 brings the network security of 'Standard & Extended IP Access List' and service security as well. It offers easy maneuvering to turn off audio or video output of undesired incoming call for complete audio/video privacy protection. AddPac Technology's VoIP gateway series and various multi-service routers have been highly appraised with their advanced performance and reliability by worldwide customers. With its years of experience and know-who would make AP-MC1000 as the ultimate solution for next-generation video communication.
