The new StarLeaf GT Mini group video calling and conferencing range offers businesses the best price performance on the market today.

Sunnyvale, CA, 5 June 2013; StarLeaf, cloud based manufacturer of video calling and conferencing hardware and software solutions, has launched a range of price busting meeting room systems, which allow businesses to match budget and room size with desired functionality. The StarLeaf GT Mini offers uncompromising high-definition video, and the clarity of wideband audio. The product range includes a microphone and choice of StarLeaf touch-screen user interface and camera, and starts from as little $1,495.

The StarLeaf GT Mini is managed from the cloud; StarLeaf say that it is so easy to use that no training is necessary, and that there's no need for IT support or expertise during set-up and deployment.

"The bottom line is that quality business video communication saves time and money, especially when it replaces the need to travel. Yet, it will never be mainstream unless everyone can afford to use it," said Mark Loney, StarLeaf CEO. "Our ambition is to make video as affordable, as widespread and as easy-to-use as the telephone. With the launch of the GT Mini, we're able to push the boundaries to offer the best room-based HD video solution at unrivalled price points."

A truly versatile and low cost business video solution for small, medium and large conference rooms, the StarLeaf GT Mini has four distinct product options. The same advanced codec is common throughout the StarLeaf GT Mini range, ensuring that users experience high-definition video together with great wideband audio. Each StarLeaf GT Mini comes with a microphone, camera, and choice of StarLeaf touch-screen user interface.

"The GT Mini line up is compelling and should be considered by any business looking to video-enable its conference rooms where low cost, ease-of-deployment, and ease-of-use are critical."
