Television Conference System


  "HARAKENZO more"'s Osaka Head Office, Tokyo Head Office, Hiroshima Office and Nagoya Office are all equipped with television conference systems (based on protocols H. 320 and H. 323). This is a remote conference system using telephone lines (ISDN) and television. Introducing this system enables us to offer to our clients high quality services such as the following (1-3 below).

1. By connecting "HARAKENZO more"'s television conference system to JPO's television conference system, it is possible for us to interview with examiners of JPO via a television.

2. By using the television conference system, it is possible for us to make prompt and effective conference with our clients at a distant place. The television conference system makes it unnecessary for us and our clients to move for conference, resulting in great reduction of time and costs.

3. By using the television conference system, it is possible for us to make real-time conference with foreign patent attorneys and enterprises while we are in Japan.
