Enables Clients to Extend HD Experience to Online Users via Industry's first Automated HD Multimedia Presentation Technology

ANAHEIM, Calif., June 19 -- Accordent Technologies, Inc. today announced the industry's first automated multimedia presentation solution that enables online audiences to experience high-definition (HD) video and visuals via live and on-demand webcasts.

Initially available with the Accordent Capture Station(TM), the company's turnkey presentation capture and publishing appliance, the new HD capabilities enable clients to capture, encode and play out HD video or HD-projected visuals in the 16x9 resolution required by HD-enabled LCD and plasma screens.

Accordent will showcase the capability for the first time at the InfoComm07 Exhibition as part of its end-to-end rich media creation and management product line. The HD demonstration will include an HD-enabled Accordent Capture Station ingesting HD video inputs, encoding the video into 16x9 resolution and outputting high-quality streams for both playback and archive.

The workflow will include the automatic capture, live publication, and archiving of HD-resolution content. The HD-enabled Accordent Capture Station also enables clients to capture HD video directly from HD cameras and the ability to capture visuals shown on HD-enabled projectors.

"Our training and distance learning clients have been the first to adopt HD technology for the exceptional clarity it adds to medical and scientific procedural demonstrations," said Mike Newman, CEO of Accordent Technologies. "Adding HD support to our rich media creation products enables them to extract even greater value from their HD investments by extending the improved visual experience to the widest possible community of online viewers," he said.
