With support for the ITU-T H.239 (video and presentation data)
standard, the PCS-XL55 can send both the video and
presentation data displayed on your PC to videoconferencing
IP Network
counterparts for more effective communication. Presentation
data can be transferred at frame rates as high as 30 fps*1,
providing natural and smooth presentations even when using

animation effects or showing videos from your PC. This
presentation data can also be shown from either a projector or
sub display, using the RGB output.
*1 These functions are available except when using the 720/60p video format.

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.

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.

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.
