Cisco TelePresence System 500
™
The Cisco TelePresence solution creates an immersive, face-to-face experience over the
network — empowering you to collaborate with others like never before.
Through a powerful combination of technologies and design that allows you and remote
participants to feel as if you are all in the same room, Cisco TelePresence can provide great
productivity benefits and transform your business. Many organizations are already using this
solution to control costs, make decisions faster, improve customer intimacy, scale scarce
resources, and speed products to market.
Cisco TelePresence comprises several endpoint models to meet many types of meeting needs:
●
The Cisco TelePresence System 500 is designed for 1 or 2 users, bringing the Cisco
TelePresence virtual in-person experience directly into the private office.
●
The Cisco TelePresence System 1000 is for small group meetings and one-on-one
conversations.
●
The Cisco TelePresence System 1300 Series is designed for group meetings in
multipurpose conference rooms.
●
The Cisco TelePresence System 3000 is for business meetings with up to 6 participants
per room.
●
The Cisco TelePresence System 3200 is for large group meetings of up to 18 participants
per room.
These endpoints work with the complete Cisco TelePresence solution for easy call scheduling and
setup; scalable, zero-latency multipoint calls; secure intercompany communications; and a host of
compelling collaboration applications that scale a variety of meeting types, high-definition (HD)
broadcasting, and industrial applications. This data sheet discusses the Cisco TelePresence
System 500 (Figure 1).

Product Overview
Cisco TelePresence combines life-like, ultra-high-definition video (1080p), quality audio, a
specially designed environment, and interactive elements to create the feeling of being in person
with meeting participants in remote locations. Because the solution is simple and easy-to-use, it
allows you and other participants to communicate naturally and effectively.
The Cisco TelePresence System 500 (part number CTS-500) brings the virtual in-person Cisco
TelePresence experience directly into the private office. The Cisco TelePresence System 500
allows individuals, subject matter experts, and executives to join Cisco TelePresence calls with
equal stature — appearing life-size on Cisco TelePresence System 3000s and other endpoints.
The smaller footprint of the Cisco TelePresence System 500 can give your organization the
flexibility to deploy this solution within personal offices to support intimate, remote one-on-one
meetings or to join large, multipoint Cisco TelePresence calls. The Cisco TelePresence System
500 delivers the same award-winning video, audio, and environmental features that create the
immersive, face-to-face experience consistent across the entire Cisco TelePresence portfolio.
Applications
The Cisco TelePresence System 500 is ideal for joining large, multilocation group meetings, such
as operational reviews, status update meetings, and quarterly customer presentations. It also
supports personal meetings such as negotiations, job interviews, and personnel reviews.
The remarkable video clarity of the Cisco TelePresence System 500 allows you to see every
expression, and the rich, CD-quality audio helps you hear every word. The ease of use and
integrated, optimized features make it easy to schedule and launch calls by just pushing a button.
Integration with the highly available Cisco network offers reliability, quality of service (QoS), and
security, giving you the confidence to use it for both internal and external meetings.
In addition, the Cisco TelePresence System 500 integrates transparently with the rest of the Cisco
TelePresence portfolio to offer the same high-quality Cisco TelePresence experience. The solution
offers the following benefits:
●
The solution offers high-quality video at 720p and 1080p resolutions.
●
Specially designed, high-definition cameras provide high-quality, high-definition images,
with excellent eye contact and no user operation required.
●
Full-duplex, CD-quality audio facilitates a full, natural conversation with no perceivable
latency. The clarity of the audio allows you and other participants to talk in relaxed or soft
voices and still be heard as if you are all in the same room. The microphone electronics are
carefully designed to eliminate interference from mobile devices and cell phones.
●
The specially designed unit is optimized to help ensure optimal lighting and audio quality.
●
Multipoint meetings with up to 48 locations in any combination of Cisco TelePresence
endpoints are supported.
●
Like the other Cisco TelePresence endpoints, the Cisco TelePresence System 500
integrates with common calendaring software for easy and automated call start and
controls; you just push a button.
●
You can meet with others in person at a moment’s notice anywhere there is a Cisco
TelePresence endpoint — with just a phone call.

Network-Adaptive
Bandwidth Usage
Cisco TelePresence systems supports 720p or 1080p resolutions with three quality levels to
optimize network bandwidth consumption. The system can operate at several different
bandwidth levels ranging from 2 to 5 Mbps per screen for configurable, variable bandwidth
consumption, maximizing the Cisco TelePresence experience while preserving frame rate and
low latency and reducing packet loss. The system is supported by all existing install,
deployment, and operation services.
Cisco TelePresence
Extended Reach
The optimized 720p Cisco TelePresence mode is ideal for wide-area bandwidth connections
as low as 1.5 Mbps per screen (T1/E1) speeds. The system maintains latency and packet loss
while providing constrained bandwidth options for remote office or telecommuter deployments.
Directories
Cisco TelePresence allows up to 40 favorites entries for convenient speed dialing or for
integration into the Cisco Unified Communications Manager general directory service, which
features a search function for thousands of directory entries.
Speed dial
Cisco TelePresence allows up to 40 favorites entries for convenient speed dialing.
Settings
The web-based interface allows administrators to securely log in to the system to make
configuration changes to the Cisco TelePresence systems.

TelePresence meetings as nonsecure, secure best effort, and always secure. Meeting
encryption status is indicated on-screen at the start of a call or when it changes, and on the
phone at all times.
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
power for high-definition
cameras and Cisco Unified
IP Phone 7975G
