Video Communication System - High Quality HD Image of the PCS-XG80S Version 1.0

As a standard feature, the PCS-XG80S Sony HD Visual Communication System supports the input and output of 1080i (1080/60i or 1080/50i) video signal, which has become the HD standard format for many imaging devices in recent years.

Moreover, to transmit this 1080i video without degrading the quality, the system uses a High Profile video codec that complies with ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector) recommendation H.264. The video codec of PCS-XG80S also supports 720p (720/60p or 720/50p) as well as 1080i, which are both known as the de facto global standard in the field of broadcasting.
