Mfr Part #: 2200-63880-101
The Polycom CX5500 Unified Conference Station delivers a unique HD voice and video collaboration experience in Microsoft Lync environments.
The CX5500 provides remote participants with 1080p HD active-speaker video that automatically tracks the flow of conversation. It also adds a unique 360-degree panoramic view of the conference room. Meetings are more productive and participants are clearly heard with Polycom's legendary HD Voice technology, now featuring a dynamic audio range of 160 Hz to 22,000 Hz. The CX5500 can also be used to place voice-only calls as an IP conference phone.
- Reduce training costs with simple USB Plug-and-Play functionality that requires little or no training
- Users connect a USB cable to their laptop and use the Lync client they already know - no remote required
- Lower support costs and realize a better ROI with increased room usage for collaboration
- No need to provision a second conference phone in the room - the CX5500 also doubles as an IP conference phone when not used for Lync video calls
- More productive Lync video collaboration
Optimized for use with Microsoft Lync, the Polycom CX5500 unified conference station brings the powerful collaboration capabilities of Microsoft Lync 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 Microsoft Lync 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 Microsoft Lync 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 Lync meeting with a dynamic range of 160 Hz to 22,000 Hz. 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 Lync server or an IP PBX, eliminating the need to for IT to install a separate audio conference station in the room.
