Global Crossing (GLBC) has announced high-definition enhancements to its flagship IP video conferencing service. The service was made possible through significant upgrades to the company’s next-generation video conferencing bridge platform. The latest enhancements support end-to-end high-definition video quality that is comparable to watching high-definition television programming, enriching the visual and auditory meeting experience, said the company. The latest high-definition enhancements are generally available to customers worldwide via Global Crossing’s globally distributed bridging architecture and network footprint.
Enhancements to Global Crossing’s IP Videoconferencing service include the ability to increase standard definition images up to four times regardless of the endpoint’s capabilities, which provides an optimized meeting experience for all participants. In addition, interactive Web Reservations, Global Crossing’s online scheduling tool, makes it simple to self-schedule and self-manage a global video program.
