16 Proprietary Network Paths - Unicast Video Audio ACV Client Audio Bridge IP-Unicast - N Out-Going Video for N endpoints receive N video inputs Audio sent to a centralized Audio Bridge
17 Proprietary Network Paths - Multicast Video Audio ACV Client Audio Bridge IP-Multicast - One Out-Going Video for N endpoints when sending identical streams to the endpoints Still receive N video inputs Audio handled the same way - Not Multicast enabled IGMP Multicast Network Video
18 Proprietary Network Paths - One Way Broadcast Video Audio ACV Client Receiver ACV Client Broadcast ACV Client Receiver Audio Bridge IP-Unicast - N Out-Going Video for N Audio handled the same way - Not Multicast enabled Unicast Network
19 Proprietary Mixing PRO and LITE Clients Video Audio ACV PRO Client ACV PRO Client ACV LITE Client Audio Bridge PRO video in hardware Only MJPEG is encoded/decoded on the PRO Board H.263/MPEG-1 decoded in SW Audio is always encoded/decoded in SW HW - PRO Board HW SW SW - Processor SW HW SW HW
20 Proprietary Mixing PRO and LITE Clients - Cont PRO Client Hardware encodes and decodes MJPEG off-loading processor Software encodes and decodes H.263/261 using processor LITE Client Software decodes MJPEG using processor, currently does not encode MJPEG. Software encodes and decodes H.263/261 using processor
21 Proprietary Mixing PRO and LITE Clients - Cont PRO Client Hardware encodes and decodes MJPEG off-loading processor Software encodes and decodes H.263/261 using processor LITE Client Software decodes MJPEG using processor, currently does not encode MJPEG. Software encodes and decodes H.263/261 using processor So, You cant expect to have one PRO (conference room) with 20 outlying LITE clients. Even though there is a PRO board, all of the video from the LITE clients must be decoded in SW. Only PRO PRO clients take advantage of the HW card
22 Proprietary Mixing Conference and Streaming Video Within a live conference or lecture, a live broadcast can be added to all clients with no problem. Call the broadcasting client as a video server Audio is live in every window, through the audio bridge All clients receive the live broadcast at the same time Within a live conference or lecture, a stored-on-disk broadcast can be added, but the audio is treated differently. Connect to the stored video through the broadcast button, then browse the network or local disk for the video Each client must connect separately Stored Audio does not go the audio bridge: Click on Conference Video to hear conference audio Click on Broadcast Video to hear stored audio Each client receives the stored broadcast at different times
23 Proprietary Mixing Conference and Streaming Video So, just how do you achieve full audio functionality when mixing live and stored videos? There must be separate audio playback devices on the client for the live and stored video/audio streams. Live streams to the ACV PRO board receiving PRO or LITE video and audio. Audio goes through the Audio Bridge. The received stored streaming video is MPEG-1 and either: Decoded in SW on the computer monitor, with the audio coming out of the computers sound system. Decoded in HW using the Optibase MPEG decoder board with the video and audio going to an external video monitor. This cannot be done with just a LITE client, both the live and stored streams will compete for the audio output.
24 Proprietary Looking at bandwidths Video Kbs is a practical talking heads lower limit. With N connections in a live conference. N input streams, whether IP Unicast or Multicast N output streams for IP Unicast Potentially one output stream for IP Multicast, if each receiving client requests the same video stream. Audio - 35 Kbs is a practical talking heads lower limit. No matter how many connections in a live conference, there is only one audio stream into and out of a client.
25 Proprietary Checking Network Connections Are the clients on the network properly - Check IP address resolution and reverse IP address resolution ping computer-name, returns computer-address ping -a computer-address, returns computer-name All the address and names must match. Test the quality of connection - go to Install qcheck on all clients Test using the streaming TCP/UDP option, up to 1Mbs Symptoms of bad IP address resolution ACV Calls result in only a one-way and not two-way connections ACV Calls take a very long time to complete Install Microsoft SP6 with hotfix for WinNT and Win2000 Prevents computer lock-up caused by fragmented network packets
26 Proprietary AffordableAffordableAffordable Product Price for License ACV – Pro Board w/SW $ ACV – Conference SWonly $ Virtual Lecture Hall SW $ Conf./ Lecture Hall Combo SW $ –Price is per seat –Pro Board comes with Combo SW –Lecture Hall – Instructor needs Pro Card » – Students need SW only API / SDK Software Development Kit $125.00
27 Proprietary Camera - Any camera will work. Here is an example.
28 Proprietary The Pro Card A mother/daughter video board with two cooling fans! Designed by the scientist in BellLabs, this is not your everyday board. Needed by an instructor to do Lecture Hall Needed to do conferences of ten or more. The Pro Card off loads the encoding and decoding workload from the Pentium Processor With the Pro Card you can achieve CD quality sound and thirty frames per second video for up to thirty conferees. IF YOU HAVE THE BANDWIDTH. In a 1 to 10, 20, or 30 each endpoint must have a Pro Card to achieve the above results.
29 Proprietary Pro Card Ports Two sources of video and sound can be connected. VCR – Elmo – Second Camera If you use a dual screen video card for your monitor you can show the conferees in one monitor and the video or document you are sharing with the conferees or students in the other.
30 Proprietary Winnov - Audio / Video Card When SW only PCs (conf. or Lecture Hall) want to send video. Low-cost, high- performance PCI video and audio capture board designed for Internet videoconferencing, digital video capture, Web cams and streaming Internet video. US Suggested Retail Price $
31 Proprietary Sound – Headsets or conference room units will work. Here is an example. It features full-duplex technology, so you can converse back and forth as naturally as you do on your telephone handset without any uncomfortable stops and starts. Youll find it convenient for hands-free talk on your personal calls, as well as for conferences that include 1 or 2 others.
32 Proprietary Monitor – Any unit will work, CRT, LCD or Plasma screen. Here is an example
