On Saturday, Justin Uberti, Tech Lead, Google Real-Time Communications,
tweeted: "HD Hangouts are live, brought to you by the VP8 codec! Another
awesome launch by the team. All you need is a recent computer (4 or more
cores) and a HD camera (I recommend the Logitech C910)."
Chee Chew on Aug 28, 2013 shared the following update:
Hangout Face to Face to Face in HD
Connect with friends and family in high res with HD hangouts! We are rolling
HD out to hangouts on air initially, then to all desktop hangout video calls
over the next few weeks.
HD hangouts require an HD-capable webcam, more bandwidth and more processing
power than standard definition. So if your computer and network are capable,
turn the quality up to HD!

In the past four weeks I've discussed the benefits of cloud computing and its
core components. My goal was to reveal the key value drivers of the cloud so
you could better understand and evaluate ROI opportunities.
I described two of the three core components of cloud
computing,infrastructure and platform, each delivered as a service. But, in
the end, your users will not work smarter or more efficiently because of
either infrastructure or platforms (save software developers or IT staff);
employees will be more effective because of the third core component,
software delivered as a service. This component ultimately is what saves
time, reduces costs and increases revenue.
Like everything else in the cloud, software as a service (SaaS) is most
commonly delivered in a Web browser and paid for based on usage; the more you
use software, the more it tends to cost. However, ... (more)
