Polycom CX5500 Unified Conference Station (2200-63880-001)
Polycom® CX5500 Unified
The IT department’s challenge is to make video meetings in conference rooms more
effective, reduce video support calls and eliminate the need for “in room” video
support services to get video meetings started. Are your video conference room
users finding it hard to pan the camera to focus attention on the active speaker?
Are they frustrated by trying to learn another user interface? Do they need to make
audio-only conference calls without having IT deploy a second conference phone?
Solve these challenges and conference room usage goes up. More room use
translates to fully realizing the benefits of video collaboration and achieving your
expected return on investment (ROI). For Skype for Business and Microsoft Lync
users, the Polycom CX5500 unified conference station answers these challenges
with a truly unique around-the-table video collaboration solution.
More productive meetings
The Polycom CX5500 unified conference station brings the powerful collaboration
capabilities of voice, video and content together through a unique 360-degree
panoramic view of the entire room. A second HD video view of the active speaker
is also sent at 1080p video resolution using advanced technology that automatically
focuses on the current speaker and tracks the flow of conversation to enable richer,
more interactive communication. No more reaching for a video control device. It’s a
“hands-free” experience that allows you forget about the technology and simply
focus on your meeting.
Easy to deploy and use
An intuitive design with full plug-and-play functionality makes it easy to deploy and use
the Polycom CX5500. With little or no training, anyone with a laptop that has Skype
for Business can walk into the room and simply plug the CX5500 unified conference
station into their PC’s USB port and start sharing voice and 360-degree panorama
video. Control, invitations, and content sharing are through the familiar Skype for
Business user interface your users already know and use every day. Removing the
challenge of learning a remote control device means fewer support calls and no need
for “in room” support from the IT department to get video conference calls started.
Audio quality matters
The Polycom® CX5500 unified conference station features Polycom’s legendary
audio bringing the industry’s best voice quality to your Skype for Business meeting
with a dynamic range of 160Hz to 22,000Hz. Polycom® HD Voice™ and a microphone
range of 20 feet (6 m) means everyone in the room can be clearly heard, even at the
end of the table. Optional microphones extend the range even further, if needed.
Customers can also make voice-only calls from a CX5500 when it is registered as a
SIP phone to either a Skype for Business/Lync server or an IP PBX, eliminating the
need to for IT to install a separate audio conference station in the room.
