Polycom Premiers Entry-Level Telepresence

At InfoComm , Polycom introduced an entry-level telepresence solution available for less than $6,000. The HDX 6000 delivers the company's UltimateHD experience with HD video, voice, and content-sharing capabilities.

At InfoComm this week, Polycom introduced an entry-level telepresence solution available for less than $6,000. The HDX 6000 delivers the company's UltimateHD experience with HD video, voice, and content-sharing capabilities, according to the company.

"The new Polycom HDX 6000 is a full-featured HD system at a price that can be quickly cost justified through the elimination of just a few business trips," said Joe Sigrist, senior vice president and general manager of video solutions at Polycom, in a statement. Polycom continues to [provide] more options for broad deployments and for smaller organizations looking to leverage the benefits of telepresence."

Polycom's HDX 6000 delivers 720p HD video quality (1280x720) at 30 fps starting at 832 Kbps, and DVD-quality video (704x576) at 30 fps starting at 256 Kbps. The experience is enhanced through HD stereo audio quality that permits two-way conversations with Polycom 22 kHz HD Voice in StereoSurround, and the ability for users to share work in HD, including movies, spreadsheets, presentations, images, or physical items like barcodes, envelopes, and products through a variety of peripherals.

The Polycom HDX 6000 is based on established videoconferencing standards and will interoperate with the more than 1.5 million standards-based videoconferencing systems in use today, according to the company. The plug-and-play system uses Polycom's Lost Packet Recovery (LPR) technology that the company says optimizes video quality over IP networks and helps ensure a worthwhile user experience even on networks prone to IP packet loss and congestion.

Polycom also offers optional remote or onsite installation services to help customers get up and running quickly. The installation support is intended for organizations that don't have in-house technical support or prefer not to install the systems themselves.

The Polycom HDX 6000 will by available to order by July 1, 2009 worldwide through certified Polycom channel partners with a recommended starting price of $5,999.
