high definition
videoconferencing
systems
Express yourself clearly with
Full HD 60p image quality
The PCS-XG100 lets you
communicate more clearly
and productively with detailpacked video conferences at
Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution
for exceptional realism.
(PCS-XG77: 720p).
With frame rates as high as 60fps,
conferences are smoother and
more natural. You’ll even enjoy
HD quality picture quality at low
bit rates when network bandwidth
is limited.
Richer, more rewarding communications:
share video, voice and PC presentations with HD quality
Ideal for a wide range of business communications, the PCS-XG100
and PCS-XG77 videoconferencing systems offer superb picture and
sound quality, plus smart features to enrich collaboration across your
organisation.
Crystal-clear images from the high quality PTZ camera* are complemented by clear,
natural sounding stereo audio. Dual streaming allows video and PC presentations
to be shared simultaneously with viewers at a remote location. See ‘Near’ and ‘Far’
camera images plus PC presentations with exceptional layout flexibility on one, two or
three connected video monitors. HD conferences can be streamed as live webcasts,
or recorded to USB memory for easy sharing and review.
The integrated MCU (PCS-XG100 only) allows multi-point conferences over ISDN or IP,
choose for either six sites or nine sites options via a simple software upgrade. What’s
more, two PCS-XG100 systems can be cascaded without additional hardware to link
16 sites simultaneously.
Set-up is refreshingly straightforward, with quick booting so you’re ready for business
faster. Operation is easy, too: just select a contact using the supplied remote
commander to launch your conference at a touch.
* Also available as PCS-XG100S/XG77S ‘codec only’ version without PTZ camera.
