TrueConf, a leading Eastern European vendor of video conferencing solutions, has announced UltraHD 4K 1-on-1 video calls. This is the first ever solution to provide UltraHD point-to-point video calls along with multipoint video conferencing. 

TrueConf technicians demonstrated the difference between 1-on-1 4K (UltraHD) and FullHD calls at a press conference on June 9 2015 in Moscow. The prototype used for the presentation consisted of a PC with a fourth generation Intel i7 CPU, Point Grey UltraHD camera, and TrueConf Server software displayed on a Polymedia Flipbox smart display for meeting rooms. The point-to-point UltraHD video calls also required a powerful video card and 4Mbit/s bandwidth.

According to TrueConf, their prototype is fundamentally different from those existing in the 4K video conferencing market, as it supports 4K UltraHD video from one participant rather than a collection of video streams from multiple users, with a maximum video resolution of 1080p from each participant. TrueConf developers note that this is a solution in advance of current IT market capabilities.
