With the introduction of the first and only H.264 High Profile implementation for real-time video, Polycom continues the tradition of bringing leading-edge video technology to the visual communication market. While H.264 is a well-established and widely implemented standard for video compression, the much simpler and less efficient Baseline Profile is used for visual communication applications today.
What is H.264? How is the High Profile different from other H.264 profiles? What is the impact of this new capability on the visual communication market? How will customers benefit from it? How will this technology help CIOs roll out video across organizations? How does High Profile interact with other video functions? What is its role in the Polycom Open Collaboration Network strategy? This white paper will look at High Profile from both the business and technology perspectives, and provide answers to these questions.
