TrueConf introduced 4K (2160p) video calls to smart TVs for NVIDIA SHIELD TV users.
Backed by NVIDIA, TrueConf has released a new solution to run 4K video conferences on smart TVs based on NVIDIA SHIELD TV consoles. High quality video conferencing has become possible thanks to SHIELD TV processing powers: powerful NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor equipped with a 256-core graphics engine based on Maxwell architecture with support for hardware encoding of video streams at 60 FPS.
The integration is powered by NVIDIA NVENC technology, which has been supported in TrueConf for Android application. Video is transmitted at 2160p and 30 FPS. Incoming and outgoing streams are processed using H.264 codec.
TrueConf integration turns NVIDIA SHIELD TV into a full-scaled Android-based 4K video conferencing endpoint for living rooms or offices. Just connect a USB camera and TV to your console to call your friends and colleagues and enjoy high-definition video on a large TV screen.
With NVIDIA SHIELD TV, your living room — and any other TV-equipped room — can easily become a meeting space. Use your console as a video conferencing endpoint to run video sessions. TrueConf collaboration tools allow you to chat, share your content, record video conferences and much more.
TrueConf for Android TV users have access to all the features of TrueConf for Android, while the application interface is fully adapted for gamepad or remote control. The app is already available on Google Play Market.
“We are pleased to introduce new features for NVIDIA SHIELD TV users. TrueConf application brings ultra-high-definition video calls to 4K TVs,” Aleksandr Ivanov, Consumer Product Marketing Manager at NVIDIA Russia, says. “NVIDIA devotes much attention not only to state-of-the-art hardware solutions, but also to essential developer tools. With a powerful scalable platform and advanced SDK, developers can add new functions to existing applications and create completely new solutions.”
“By integrating our technologies with NVIDIA, we’ve brought video conferencing hardware encoding to mobile devices,” Dmitry Odintsov, TrueConf Chief Business Development Officer, says. “With NVIDIA technologies, developers can extend mobile applications functionality, adding the features which were previously available only on desktop PCs.”
TrueConf will demonstrate 4K video conferencing on smart TVs based on NVIDIA SHIELD TV console at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam on February 6-9.
