PCS-G50 Specifications
PCS-G50 VIDEOCONFERENCING SYSTEM
The PCS-G50 videoconferencing system is a combination of advanced audio and video technologies to
provide a visual communication tool for all businesses, small or large and at a very affordable price.
Memory Stick® Media Support
High-Quality
Video/HighSpeed Network
Connection
The PCS-G50 provides
excellent picture quality
over both ISDN (H.320)
and IP (H.323)
networks and fully
supports the latest nonproprietary ITU-T H.264
video codec standard
for maximum customer
confidence and
flexibility. When video
encoding is in
accordance with the
H.263 protocol, the
PCS-G50 supports the
4CIF format at a
maximum frame rate of
30 fps, and when in
H.264 protocol, it
supports the interlaced
SIF format at 60 fields
per second. It can also
achieve a maximum
bandwidth of 4 Mbps
with an IP connection,
and up to 1.5 Mbps
with an ISDN
connection using
an optional PCSA-PRI
ISDN unit.
Private phone books can be created and stored on Memory Stick media. Simply insert the
Memory Stick media into the PCS-G50 and automatically the unit recognizes and activates
the private phone book, eliminating the need to re-enter contact information to place a call.
Memory Stick media has a number of other uses, such as storing captured images,
PC-generated data, and digital whiteboard drawings. The media can also be used for
capturing audio and video during a videoconference to keep a record of what was conveyed
during a conference, and for installing and updating software.
QoS (Quality of Service)
Enhancement Functions
When holding a videoconference over a
network, a common concern is how to maintain
video and audio quality when the performance
of the network is changing. The PCS-G50
provides three advanced functions to enhance
QoS over a network: Forward Error Correction
(FEC), Adaptive Rate Control (ARC) and Realtime Auto Repeat Request (ARQ).
Secure Videoconferencing –
Advanced Encryption Standard
(AES)
Secure videoconferencing over a network is
possible because the PCS-G50 supports AES
128-bit encryption. The PCS-G50 offers two
encryption modes with an IP connection, one that
complies wih the ITU-T H.235 standard, which
allows encrypted communication with other
H.235 compliant systems, and another that is
Sony proprietary, which is ideal when connecting
to other PCS Series systems and offers higher
security. When either of these encryption modes
is active, video, audio, and graphics are encrypted
for the duration of the videoconference.
Other Key Features of the PCS-G50
Other key features include multi-point videoconferencing at up to 10 sites using optional MCU software,
Site-Name display which can display anything from company or branch names to geographical locations
on a monitor, allowing videoconferencing participants to keep track of all parties, Flexible Display patterns
at all sites, Easy-To-Use Remote Commander Unit/Intuitive GUI and a very stylish design that can fit even
the classiest of conference rooms.
Sony IPELA products
embrace the concepts
of Reality, Usability, and
Intelligence, enabling
real audiovisual
communication over
IP networks.
The PCS-G50 — The Business Tool for Visual
Communications with the utmost Flexibility at
a very affordable price for today’s businesses.
Videoconferencing systems continue to evolve as we enter a new era of visual communication. Sony’s
IPELA brand of videoconferencing equipment is leading this evolution by staying ahead of the latest
technological trends in videoconferencing and developing systems that meet our customers’ demands.
The mid-range PCS-G50 video communication system is vital to move ahead in today’s business, and with
this feature-rich system, not only will your visual communications be effective, it will be affordable.
PCS-G50 Features
High-Quality Video/High-Speed Network Connection: The PCS-G50 provides
excellent picture quality over both ISDN (H.320) and IP (H.323) networks and
fully supports the latest non-proprietary ITU-T H.264 video codec standard for
maximum customer confidence and flexibility.
Superb Sound: The PCS-G50 reproduces clear and natural-sounding audio
using MPEG-4 AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) at 14KHz.
Multi-Point Videoconferencing at up to 10 Sites: Using optional MCU
software, the PCS-G50 can be configured to communicate with up to 5
remote videoconferencing sites (6 sites total) simultaneously using either
an IP (H.323 protocol) or ISDN (H.320 protocol) connection.
Flexible Display Patterns at all Sites: In addition to conventional patterns
of display – such as showing the far-end site on a full screen or displaying
near-end and far-end sites in picture-in-picture mode – a variety of other
display patterns are available with the PCS-G50.
Memory Stick recording: Audiovisual (A/V) Recording to Memory Stick®
Media. Capturing audio and video during a videoconference is important
to keep a record of what was conveyed during a conference. With the
PCS-G50, audio and video displayed on the main monitor can be recorded*
directly to Memory Stick® media in MPEG-4 format and can be played back
on any PC using QuickTime® media player.
Data-Sharing Capabilities/Digital Whiteboard Support: Data originated on
your PC can be shared with your videoconferencing counterparts, making
communication even more effective.
Site-Name Display: During multi-point videoconferences, it can be difficult to
keep track of all of the participants; however, with the PCS-G50 site-name
display function, this is no longer the case.
Built-in Streaming Function: To broadcast* your videoconferences to a
large audience, i.e. with educational lectures or live corporate speeches,
the PCS-G50 features a built-in streaming function that allows remote
users to log on from any PC using an Internet browser.**
