Polycom® VSX™ 5000
Polycom® VSX™ 5000
Video conferencing system offering
excellent price performance
and flexibility
A compact and economical solution for small to medium-sized
conference rooms.
Ideal for smaller conference spaces, the new entry-level Polycom VSX™
5000 set-top system delivers market-leading video and audio quality at an
affordable price. A real space-saver, it sits conveniently on top of TVs, highresolution 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 delivering various
types of content (for example, pictures, presentations, audio files). Connection
options include IP (H.323 and SIP) and ISDN dialling, so you can utilise 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
15 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 in one display and shared content
in the other display.
Add simplicity and reduce conference table clutter by taking advantage
of the Polycom SoundStation VTX 1000 integration with the VSX 5000.
This integration gives users the ability to dial, hang up and mute a video
conference right from the conference phone. Since the SoundStation VTX
1000 acts as the stereo microphone as well as a standalone conference
phone, there is no need for any other microphone on the table. Plus,
dedicated stereo audio outputs enable easy implementation of Polycom’s
StereoSurround™ technology, which separates multiple voices with
conversational stereo.
In today’s Internet driven world, the ability to conduct real time communication
and collaboration has become critical to an organisation’s survival. As the
market leader in voice, video, data and web solutions, our award-winning
conference technology makes it easy for people to interact and maximise
