Session Abstract

Inexpensive, easy and portable communication!

The primary recommendation is that you stick to standards-compliant audio and video protocols. The most common standard for video conferencing is H.323 and encompasses location server registration, call setup and termination, and security and authentication. The primary standard for audio is G-711 (G-723.1 and G-728 are also commonly supported). For video, H.264 is the most recently supported standard.

Various software programs implement these protocols and can interoperate with each other. The focus of this demo will be Ekiga. Ekiga (formely known as GnomeMeeting) is an open source SoftPhone, Video Conferencing and Instant Messenger application.

It supports HD sound quality and video up to DVD size and quality.

It is interoperable with many other standard compliant applications, appliances and service providers as it can use either of the major telephony standards (SIP and H.323).
