Stunning video and audio brought to you by “IPELA” fashions the novel reality
for the modern businessperson. Sharing ideas and dreams as if you are
collocated when your counterpart is half-way around the world, experiencing
images as if you are actually there, this is “IPELA”. Real audiovisual
communication over networks – this is business communication of the future,
brought to you today. This is “IPELA”.
Crisp and clear audio
with sparkling video quality.
Today, many organisations are facing the
same challenges. Gaining competitive
edge, increasing efficiency and improving
profitability is balanced by the need to
manage travel budgets and other
overheads more effectively.
That’s why corporate companies,
educational establishments, scientific
institutions and medical practitioners are
using videoconferencing to improve their
internal as well as external communications – bringing people together to
share ideas and make decisions,
wherever they are in the world.
The Sony PCS-1P videoconference
system offers everything you need to
bring the benefits of high quality video,
audio and data conferencing to your
organisation.
Elegantly designed and small enough to
fit on your desk, the PCS-1P is equally at
home in meeting rooms of any size, right
up to the largest boardroom. Quick and
easy to set up, the PCS-1P plugs into
your standard office network, ISDN
network or connects to the Internet to
deliver all the advantages of audio, video
and data conferencing without requiring
special cabling or difficult configuration.
The intuitive on screen menu of the
PCS-1P makes setting up a conference
call as easy as making a normal
telephone call; calls to five other parties
can be launched instantly from one
phonebook entry.

Better still, as your needs grow, it’s easy
to upgrade the PCS-1P to handle
“multipoint” conferences with up to five
other participants over IP and ISDN
networks simultaneously.
Sparkling picture quality is matched by
clear, crisp audio that’s the best in its
class, making every conference more
immediate, personal and productive.
Connect two PCs or notebooks and you
can share presentation documents and
images as well as voice and video, or
hook up a digital whiteboard and
communicate your ideas with sketches
and handwritten notes that everybody
can see and share. Best of all, the
PCS-1P is fully compatible with other
videoconferencing systems, so it’s easy
to integrate into your existing IT and
networked communications infrastructure.
The Sony PCS-1P – it’s the most
natural, effective way to help you
communicate more effectively…
whatever your business is.

FEATURES
■ Share your Ideas Easily
■ Bring the World into your Conference
Nothing persuades like the power of the visual image,
and any conference can become even more
productive with the addition of presentations,
documents, pictures and diagrams. With the PCS-1P,
it’s easy to share presentations and documents
created on your PC, or add hand-written notes from a
digital whiteboard – it’s like giving a presentation to
everybody in the same room. The PCS-1P offers two
special data sharing features to help get your point
across more effectively:
With the unique optional multipoint functionality you can
bring up to 6 international locations into one meeting
instantly, via IP, ISDN or both networks at the same
time. You can even expand the number of locations to
an amazing 10 sites, without using an expensive
external multipoint solution, just by cascading a second
PCS-1P. All participants can be seen on one TV monitor
in the unique Sony 5+1 continuous presence mode,
while the high resolution data or whiteboard drawings
are projected via the second monitor or projector. The
high bandwidth of 384 Kbps per site in such a
multipoint conference provides excellent audio and
video quality.
Even when participants are not near any videoconferencing system they can join the conference:
up to 5 participants can join in via their mobile or fixed
telephone just as easily.
■ Standards-based data sharing
from your PC
Present information from your PC instantly
The new generation of multimedia videoconferencing
systems from Sony facilitates sharing of highresolution data from the PC at the touch of a button irrespective of the number of participants, while
retaining full industry-wide interoperability. High
resolution XGA display quality ensures that Microsoft®
PowerPoint®, Word and Excel files can be viewed with
superb clarity, making it easier to read even the
smallest on-screen characters. Up to two PCs or
notebooks can be connected simultaneously, allowing
presenters to switch seamlessly between PCs and
transmit screen images at the touch of a button. With
two monitors connected, one screen can display data
presentations while the other displays video and audio
of the presenter. Larger images can be displayed by
connection to an external data projector, television or
plasma screen.
Up to five separate microphones can be connected to
ensure that every voice in the room is heard clearly.
Use your existing whiteboard
Further improving the natural interactivity of a face-toface meeting, an optional Mimio Xi™ connected to the
PCS-1P turns your existing whiteboard into a digital
one, allowing handwritten notes, drawings and
diagrams to be displayed in real time. Notes and other
annotations can also be captured by the PCS-1P and
stored to Memory Stick™ for sharing, storage or wider
distribution.

■ Excellent Video Quality
The PCS-1P supports the H.264 video coding standard
delivering sparkling video quality during conferences.
The PCS-1P can connect to IP networks using the ITUT H.323 standard at up to 2 Mb/s and 30 frames/s. By
connecting the optional PCSA-B768S ISDN unit, it
is possible to connect to ISDN networks using the
ITU-T H.320 standard up to 768 Kb/s.
■ Outstanding Audio Quality
■ Ensuring Quality on your Network
Audio quality is a vital part of any video conference
meeting and the success of any meeting greatly
depends on it. The PCS-1P therefore supports MPEG4
14 kHz wideband audio to provide crisp and clear
sound quality. Furthermore, the built-in echo canceller
capabilities of the PCS-1P and the available
microphone options ensure that the PCS-1P can be
used for a variety of room installations.
Maintaining consistent picture and audio quality levels is
a common concern when running videoconferences
over the Internet and data networks. The PCS-1P offers
advanced functions to enhance Quality Of Service and
provide a more satisfying, reliable and productive
videoconference:
■ Scalable, Fexible Design
The PCS-1P offers a highly scalable, flexible videoconferencing solution to suit the needs of any
organisation, from desktop users and smaller meeting
rooms right up to large boardrooms. The main
Communication Terminal measures a compact 258 x
54 x 171 mm (WxHxD), and can be sited separately
from the Camera Unit to ensure greater flexibility in
installation and configuration. The Communication
Terminal and Camera Unit are together small enough to
be positioned on top of a television or video monitor.
Alternatively, both units can be mounted on a dedicated
camera stand (PCS-STP1) or integrated separately into
a meeting room.
■ Security
The PCS-1P supports both ITU-T standards-based
encryption and Sony proprietary encryption that
provides additional security with encrypted key
exchange, to safeguard audio, video and data against
unauthorised interception, ensuring that confidential
information remains secure throughout the conference.
Adaptive Rate Control
The adaptive rate control function varies the bit rate of
transmitted audio and video data corresponding to
changing network conditions, selecting the most
appropriate frame rate at a particular instant. Video bit
rates are automatically lowered when network traffic
becomes congested, and increased when network
performance increases to deliver the best possible
conferencing quality at all times.
ARQ (Auto Repeat reQuest)
The ARQ function maintains picture quality by
buffering and re-sending lost data packets to
improve audio and video performance even when
network conditions are less than optimal.
■ Memory Stick Support
User benefits:
• Easy data sharing:
During a videoconference, by using the Memory Stick
SlideShow, images that are received can be saved on
a Memory Stick to be reviewed later.
• Private PhoneBook function:
Users can store their own private phonebook on a
Memory Stick. A selected phonebook entry can also
be configured for automatic dial-up when the Memory
Stick is inserted into the PCS-1P.
• Installation and upgrading:
A videoconferencing system can be installed and
upgraded straight from the Memory Stick. Multiple
installations can be done by simply copying and
pasting the system settings and PhoneBook to
another PCS-1P or PCS-11P.
• Information retrieval:
Call log files from the PCS-1P can be saved to a
Memory Stick, providing all the relevant information
about the system usage: the username, time of
usage, bandwidth used, etc, thus facilitating invoicing
for your company.
