Polycom ® SoundStation VTX 1000
High performance voice conferencing for rooms that
require exceptional tvoice quality
The Polycom ® SoundStation VTX 1000 ® is truly a leap forward in voice conferencing
technology. It’s the world’s first conference phone that automatically adapts to each
meeting environment, providing high fidelity voice clarity for all participants. With the
Polycom SoundStation VTX 1000, conference call participants can speak at a normal,
natural conversation level and be heard clearly from up to 20-feet away from the
microphone—even in large conference rooms. And, when two Polycom SoundStation
VTX 1000 conference phones connect on opposite ends of a call, the phones
automatically connect in Polycom ® HD Voice ™, resulting in extraordinary fidelity.
No wonder Polycom is the #1 choice in conference phones, worldwide.
Polycom ® Acoustic Clarity™ technology delivers exceptional performance and voice
quality, making your conference calls clearer and more productive. Industry-leading
full duplex technology provides natural, simultaneous two-way conversation without
clipping or drop-outs that are common in traditional speakerphones. Dynamic
Noise Reduction (DNR) actively removes background noise such as projectors and
ventilation systems, while 360-degree microphone coverage with intelligent mixing
highlights the person speaking, not the distracting ambient sounds, for crystal
clear conferencing. The Polycom SoundStation VTX 1000 features technology that
resists interference from mobile phones and other wireless devices, delivering clear
communications with no distractions.
The Polycom SoundStation VTX 1000 conference phone’s 20-foot microphone
pickup range makes it ideal for larger conference rooms, with even greater pickup
available through optional Expansion Microphones. Automatic Gain Control
technology adjusts the microphone levels based on the distance the speaker is from
the microphones, delivering clear conversations to the other participants. It can also
be connected to a set of external speakers for additional volume in the conference
room. Integration with Polycom ® SoundStructure ® and Polycom ® Vortex ® installed
audio solutions makes it versatile enough to be used in nearly any type of conference
or meeting room.
