New Features of the Grandstream GXV3140 IP Video Phone
The already plentiful list of capabilities and features of the Grandstream GXV3140 just got a little longer with the new Feature Pack 2.0 firmware release that is now available. This upgrade will give 3140 users the ability to make 3-way video calls, access social networks like Facebook and Twitter, customize with various music ring tones, stream video from online sites like YouTube, and utilize the GXV3140 wirelessly via Grandstream's new USB 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter available from ABP. The 3-way video calling feature is extremely advanced and gives users a whole new set of options in how to use the phone. We have done testing with these new features and many are quite impressive. The video quality of the streaming video from YouTube is incredibly good and the Wi-Fi dongle provides for flawless wireless video calling whether you are using Grandstream's free IPVIDEOTALK network or your own IP-PBX. Instructions on how to properly configure the phone to be wireless can be viewed on ABPTECHTV with our helpful video.
Also, this firmware upgrade will allow for users to take advantage of the H.263/H.263+ video codecs that have been long awaited. This just allows for better interoperability with other products, specifically ABP's Mobotix IP Surveillance Cameras. Now you can make (and receive) H.263 SIP Video calls from your Mobotix cameras to keep an eye on the security of your home or business. Configure your camera to call your phone if motion/noise is detected and be instantly aware of what is taking place.
Add these features to the Internet radio channels, the online photo galleries, and the powerful web browser and it is apparent that the Grandstream GXV3140 is a powerful multimedia IP video phone. It will be beneficial to those seeking a well rounded communications tool for business and personal purposes. And with such an aggressive introductory price, why wouldn't you replace your audio only phones with one capable of face to face video calls and Wi-Fi connectivity? It makes sense to consider this when purchasing your next phone system from ABP.
