What does High Definition Video mean?

High Defintion video can be defined as any video that is of higher resolution and quality than standard definition.

In the film and television industries there is technically no standardized minium requirement, but most modern TVs greatly exceed the resolutions that we consider high definition when the term was first used and these days the generally accepted minimum resolution for an HDTV is 1280 x 720 pixels. Most content for computer and TV screens is shot in at least full HD (1920 x 1080) and there of course greater resolutions including 2k, 4k and most recently 8k.

In telecoms and collaboration, HD video is often used to refer to the quality of video that can be transported during a video call and is normally full HD standard. However, this is sometimes a bit misleading as video quality is not just dependant on what the codec can support, it is also dependant on the upload and download speeds of all participants.

While it is true that both Internet speeds and connection stability have improved 10 fold in recent years, it is also true that it could be the case that in a video conference the quality may be crystal clear for one person, but jittery and lagging for other participants who may have lower bandwith and slower download speeds.

As a communications agency with just under 20 employees, the pascom phone system is perfect for us. The technical concept simply functions, which is what you want. The service is exceptional and always accessible (even if it is rarely needed) and as one of the agency’s business partners, we can only recommend pascom: open, straightforward, pleasant to work with - great. Thank you pascom!

Lars Hoeger, IT Director
When we make decisions regarding new systems, we want to make sure that we have both reins firmly in our hands. Therefore, it is essential to implement systems which adhere to OpenStandards, allowing us to seamlessly connect and integrate these into our existing systems. In addition, we require reliable suppliers, who are ready to customise their solutions to our requirements, which is why we chose pascom who offer exactly this service and more.

Kassandra Martin, Deputy Director & Reception Manager
We chose pascom as our telephony solution in part due to the scalability, flexibility and ease of deployment. In addition, the pascom platform functions perfectly with our digital guest directories in our rooms whilst offering the largest range of features at easily the most cost effective price compared to alternative solutions. A further deciding factor was the wide choice of compatible hardware that choosing pascom afforded us.

My team and I pride ourselves on the level of excellent care we provide our guests. However, it can be distracting when the phone is always ringing and we constantly answer the same questions. Thanks to the pascom phone system, we have been able to set up an automated attendant self-service hotline which allows guests to quickly get answers and if required callers can be quickly and efficiently routed to an employee. The system greatly improves customer service with around-the-clock answers around opening times and courses and therefore reduces the strain on employees, ensuring we are free to cater to the needs of our on-site guests.
