Title
(EN) PERIPHERAL VIDEO CONFERENCING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE VISIOCONFERENCE PERIPHERIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A peripheral video conferencing system (70) is housed in a peripheral housing and adapted for communication with an analog or digital communication channel (82) and a separate host computer system (72). Audio, video, and data file information is transmitted to and received from a remote conferencing site over the communication channel. A plurality of audio, video, and communication channel connectors (123) provide means for acquiring source audio and video signals, and broadcasting over an internal or separate external speaker remote video images and audio (90, 220, 76). A high-speed output interface (140) provides connectivity with the separate host computer system (72) for coordinating, in cooperation with video conferencing application software operating thereon, the presentation of local and remote NTSC or PAL video images on a display coupled to the computer system (74).
(FR)
Un système de visioconférence périphérique (70) est logé dans un boîtier périphérique et conçu pour permettre la communication avec une voie de communication analogique ou numérique (82) et un système d'ordinateur central séparé (72). Les informations audio, vidéo, et relatives aux fichiers de données sont transmises à un site de conférence éloigné et reçue par celui-ci par la voie de communication. Une pluralité de connecteurs de voie de communication audio, vidéo et de communication (123) produisent un moyen d'acquisition de signaux audio et vidéo sources, et de diffusion sur un haut-parleur interne ou externe séparé d'images vidéo et de sons éloignés (90, 220, 76). Une interface de sortie grande vitesse (40) assure la connectivité avec le système d'ordinateur central séparé (72) pour permettre la coordination, conjointement avec le logicial d'application de visioconférence exploité sur ce dernier, de la présentation d'images vidéo NSTC ou PAL locales et ¤loign¤es sur un affichage coupl¤ au syst¨me d'ordinateur.
