4K Video Conferencing Brings Meetings to Life

January 18, 2018

The way we video conference is about to change dramatically thanks to TrueConf and NVIDIA. This week, TrueConf announced the release of a 4K, high-definition video conferencing solution, with the help of NVIDIA. Meetings are accessible via the NVIDIA SHIELD consoles equipped with 256-core graphics.

Integration is enabled through the TrueConf for Android app (and Google Play Market) where video is transferred at 2160 p and 30 FPS while streams run on the H.264 codec. By linking a USB camera and television to a console, a high-def 4K screen is created for friendly gatherings and enhanced work meetings. 

“TrueConf application brings ultra-high-definition video calls to 4K TVs,” Aleksandr Ivanov, Consumer Product Marketing Manager at NVIDIA Russia, says. “NVIDIA devotes much attention not only to state-of-the-art hardware solutions, but also to essential developer tools. With a powerful scalable platform and advanced SDK, developers can add new functions to existing applications and create completely new solutions.”

TrueConf’s collaboration tools easily enable chatting, content sharing, recording the conferences for future use, etc. With 4K high-def video conferencing, clarity will be enhanced to a new level of conferencing. No longer will it feel like clients, colleagues, and remote co-workers are at a distance.

“By integrating our technologies with NVIDIA, we’ve brought video conferencing hardware encoding to mobile devices,” Dmitry Odintsov, TrueConf Chief Business Development Officer, says. “With NVIDIA technologies, developers can extend mobile applications functionality, adding the features which were previously available only on desktop PCs.”

TrueConf helps with over 1500 companies and five million video conferencing users daily.
