Entry-level compact video conferencing solution for small meeting spaces

Ideal for smaller conference spaces, the new entry-level Poly VSX 5000 set-top system brings market leading video and audio quality within an affordable price. A real space-saver, it sits conveniently on top of TVs, high-resolution plasma screens, or LCD displays. You can easily add a peripheral (document camera, or VCR/DVD), dual monitors, and audio-only callers through ISDN or the SoundStation VTX 1000®. In fact, the VSX 5000 gives you multiple ways of dialing conference attendees and employing various types of content (for example, pictures, presentations, movies, audio files). Connection options encompass IP, ISDN, and SIP dialing, so you can utilize the VSX 5000 in a variety of conference environments.

The VSX 5000 is also well-suited for educational resource rooms where smaller groups of students meet with a remote educational specialist, and remote medical clinics that deliver specialist care to patients hundreds of kilometers from home.

The VSX 5000 includes features and benefits such as a user interface in 13 languages, multiple ways to add content, and dual monitor emulation for single display solutions. Choose either a VGA display or a TV as your main display, whichever suits your conferencing environment. The ISDN option enables you to add ISDN conferencing capability as well, and the dual monitor option allows you to show people on one display and shared content on the other display.

When you’re ready to upgrade your meeting room environment even further, you can take advantage of Poly’s SoundStation VTX 1000 integration, giving users the ability to dial a video conference from their conference phone. This also saves space on the conference table, since the SoundStation VTX 1000 also acts as the stereo microphone as well as a standalone conference phone. Plus, dedicated stereo audio outputs enable easy implementation of Poly’s StereoSurround™ technology, for sound that is as natural as being there.
