HP is expanding its enterprise videoconferencing portfolio.
The company is rolling out a new set of hardware and software offerings dubbed HP Visual Collaboration.
The platform takes its Halo videoconferencing technology to the desktop and conference room for the first time.
"Customers need to collaborate inside and outside their companies, whether they are travelling, working at home or at the office," said HP visual collaboration general manager and vice president Rob Scott.
"HP's full range of high-quality HD videoconferencing solutions, especially at the desktop, make that possible."
The move builds on a deal HP announced earlier this year with Vidyo. The two companies planned to co-develop a platform that would allow companies to run high-quality videoconferencing with lower bandwidth consumption.
Among the products to be rolled out under the Visual Collaboration banner will be a desktop software client. The software tool will allow users to access the HP conferencing platform through both desktop and notebook systems.
Additionally, the company is planning to offer a bundled Visual Collaboration Executive Desktop package that will pair up the desktop software with an HP TouchSmart system as well as a camera and headphones.
For larger rooms, the company is pitching the Visual Collaboration Room 100 and Room 220 platforms.
To run the Visual Collaboration deployments, HP is offering a specially-configured version of its ProLiant server along with Visual Collaboration Portal software and router and gateway hardware.
