PCS-RF1 RF Remote Commander Speakers 2 KIOSK Mode The PCS-XL55 has a convenient Kiosk mode that can be used to provide unattended services for applications such as remote consulting or customized distance learning. This mode not only provides a user-friendly interface for customers, but is also a delight for system integrators because it is both easy to configure and flexible. For example, up to four locations can be preset and customized thumbnail images can be designed. Video Annotation Function*2 For effective communication, the PCS-XL55 offers a useful video annotation function. Conference participants can IP Network clearly point out specific parts of shared data, including live images and presentation data, by simply writing on a tablet. This function can help you to minimize time and effort in your communications, enabling you to deliver a clear, strong PCS-XL55 PCS-XL55 message. *2 Requires an optional third-party pen tablet. Pen Tablet Enhanced Intelligent QoS™ Functions for Stable and Secure Videoconferencing To handle the transmission of large amounts of HD video data, while maintaining high-quality and stable communication over an IP network, the PCS-XL55 incorporates the following advanced Quality of Service (QoS) functions: •Adaptive FEC (Forward Error Correction) •Real-time ARQ™ (Automatic Repeat reQuest) •ARC (Adaptive Rate Control) These functions work in harmony for fast and consistent data throughput during the transmission of video signals, With Enhanced Intelligent QoS by adapting to any changes in network condition, and correcting any packet loss. (Simulated images) Without Enhanced Intelligent QoS 3 Multi-point Connection - Embedded MCU Using either an IP (H.323 protocol) or ISDN (H.320 protocol) connection, the PCS-XL55 can communicate with up to two remote videoconferencing sites (three sites in total) simultaneously. Simple Setup and Easy Operation Intuitive GUI - Simple Layer Structure / Translucent Cascading Menus The PCS-XL55 was thoughtfully designed with an intuitive GUI, utilizing translucent cascading menus. The simple layer structure and easy functionality allow you to operate the videoconferencing system, including the camera, much more easily. One-touch Dialing With the RF Remote Commander Unit For user convenience, the PCS-XL55 adopts an RF Remote Commander unit which you do not have to point directly towards the system. What’s more, the PCS-XL55 has a convenient One-touch Dialing feature, which allows you to easily connect to any of your registered contacts by just pushing a function button on the RF Remote Commander unit that corresponds to a thumbnail image on the GUI. Up to four contacts for one-touch dialing can be shown on the home menu from a maximum of 1,000 registered contacts.
