Tandberg introduces high-resolution mobile video system
Tandberg, a global leader in video communication, has introduced FieldView, a high-resolution mobile video system that enables remote workers to visually collaborate and troubleshoot field issues with centrally-located experts. By bringing the problem to the expert, organizations are better able to maximize the valuable time of their workforce scaling expertise to many locations instantly.
Many industries stand ready to benefit from this type of mobile visual communication solution:
- Manufacturing workers onsite can visually share and illustrate line equipment malfunctions with remote experts.
- Construction workers can immediately address a site's structural problems with engineers at headquarters.
- Oil and gas platform workers can walk through repair procedures with a vendor onshore.
- Medical technicians in the field can discuss patient conditions with specialists at regional hospitals.
The system is comprised of a FieldView Device for field use and a FieldView Application.
The Device, which looks like a traditional single lens reflex (SLR) camera, operates like a traditional video endpoint, but features two way VoIP and one-way video. The Application can control the device remotely, enabling experts to focus and even zoom in to share and discuss detailed video images. The FieldView Application can be installed on any computer with access to a wireless 802.11 b/g network.
