Supporting this would REALLY be nice. (it would also require upping the bandwidth limits on room systems beyond 1.5Mb/s...which has already been suggested)
60fps support would be really cool, but to Craigs point, it would have to be a setting which could be turned on and off in the admin settings for those how do not want to use the additional bandwidth. You could also just limit the call speed on your codec.
1080p video would also be beneficial but would also use more bandwidth. In our case bandwidth isn't an issue in our main offices so to have 1080p 60fps video conferencing between endpoints would really make the experience more lifelike and I'd like to test that out.
BJ already allows MUCH higher bandwidth on browsers and at higher resolutions. Seems only right not to treat the more expensive equipment as second class endpoints especially since they have better cameras and hardware accelerated video ASICs on board.
Bandwidth is not an issue nowadays, heck I've got cable at home that's not even fiber that will do over 10mb/s upstream without any problem.
I suspect it has to do with the fact that they have to transcode between H.264 and VP8. To Enable higher bandwidth and resolution on room based endpoints probably means they would have to build out a bigger server farm (virtually or otherwise) setup to handle it. Enabling higher bandwidth and resolution on room systems would probably mean extra $$$ BJ costs in that area..
