Maersk und Placecam

Our cooperation with Maersk was featured in various technical publications. Read the two examples below:

In the final analysis, the ease-of-use and low hardware requirements were the most compelling reasons.

The SWR and PlaceCam

The German television station SWR uses PlaceCam for its weekly program „Zur Sache Baden-Württemberg“. See a clip from the broadcast first aired on 5/29/2008.

SWR uses PlaceCam weekly every Thursday at 8:15 p.m. for the program ‘Zur Sache Baden-Württemberg’.

Villeroy & Boch and PlaceCam

The ability to provide cross-company communication across national borders while being easy to use and offering optimum video quality. These are the reasons why Villeroy & Boch opted for PlaceCam.

We were unable to find a tool that delivers such brilliant sound and image quality with so little bandwidth.

Die MOZ and PlaceCam

Since regional newspapers want to stay in tune with their readers, they need a closely knit network of local offices. Because they constantly exchange information with the central editorial office and with other local offices, they need PlaceCam. At least that’s how the Märkische Oderzeitung saw it and decided on PlaceCam.

Thanks to the 360° Polycam camera – PlaceCam is about the only desktop version that supports it – videos of the complete conference round and of single persons can be sent at the simultaneously.

Since we believe that it is possible to offer an optimum solution to meet any special need, we want to work with you to develop and implement a software solution that is precisely tailored to your company and its specific needs. Let the following project examples inspire you!

Online discussion of high-resolution, cardiologic images

daviko_placecam_xga-stationThe XGA station is a something we take to heart.

A technical solution was sought that allows doctors at various locations to consult each other and discuss cardiologic image sequences. The XGA station developed by daviko GmbH offers two modes for this purpose: (1) the videoconference mode in which the video and audio data of a room are transmitted to a remote location, and (2) the data mode in which the high-resolution sequences from the DVI/VGA output of the cardiologic device are transmitted. Instead of using a signal-degrading, low-quality PAL resolution, data is transmitted lossfree in XGA quality in real time.

We implemented this project for the University Clinic Charité, Heart Center in Berlin-Wedding/Buch (in 2004).

Please read the presentation given by the Charité on the subject Video conferences in the cardiology (available in German only).

Modern supervision in psychotherapy.

A bite please.

BITE allows Internet-based video supervision in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy. To carry out supervisory sessions over the Internet, a videoconferencing system was implemented. To provide the special features required, PlaceCam was then modified. An even higher video resolution and an enlarged chat area were two requested features. Furthermore, a database interface in the BITE video-client makes it possible to communicate with the supervision platform for appointment inquiries and administrative tasks.

Microscopy in a team via videoconference

DAVIT = Digital Application-independent Video-based Interactive Tutoring system


Sixty students microscope simultaneously the same object – due to PlaceCam.

60 students can observe a single object simultaneously under a microscope – thanks to PlaceCam. As part of a plan to support medical education in the Charité University Clinic, several auditoriums – including the histology lecture hall – were equipped with a live videoconferencing system for up to 60 workplaces. This setup enables a lecturer to transfer pictures of the work he or she is performing at the microscope (including mouse movements on the PC) to every workplace. In addition, the students can interact with the lecturer by using their mice. This system utilizes a multicast transmission with consistently high video quality. The resolution produced is 768×576 pixels at 25 fps.

DAVIT was the result of a cooperation with the University Clinic Charité, Pathology Dept. in Berlin-Mitte (2002-2003).
