Cisco TelePresence 500
Cisco TelePresence creates a live, "face-to-face" experience over the network -empowering you to interact and collaborate with others like never before.
Through a powerful combination of technologies and design that allows you and remote
participants to feel as if you are all in the same room, Cisco TelePresence has the potential to
transform your business. Many organizations are already using Cisco TelePresence to make
decisions faster, improve customer intimacy and cross-cultural communications, scale scarce
resources, and speed products to market.
The Cisco TelePresence meeting solution comprises several endpoint models to meet many types
of meeting needs:
The Cisco TelePresence 500 is designed for one or two users, bringing the virtual in-person
experience of Cisco TelePresence directly into the private office.
The Cisco TelePresence 1000 is for small group meetings and one-on-one conversations.
The Cisco TelePresence 3000 is for business meetings with up to 6 participants per room.
The Cisco TelePresence 3200 is for large group meetings of up to 18 participants per room.
These endpoints work with the Cisco TelePresence Manager software, which provides easy call
scheduling and setup, and the Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch for multipoint calls. This data
sheet discusses the Cisco TelePresence 500 (Figure 1).

Product Overview
The Cisco TelePresence meeting solution combines life-size, ultra-high-definition video (1080p),
quality audio, a specially designed environment, and interactive elements to create the feeling of
being in person with meeting participants in remote locations. This simple, easy-to-use solution
allows you and other participants to focus on the meeting, not the technology, and communicate
naturally and effectively.
The Cisco TelePresence 500 (part number CTS-500) brings the virtual in-person experience of
Cisco TelePresence directly into the private office. Creating a new category called Personal
TelePresence, the Cisco TelePresence 500 allows individuals, subject matter experts, and
executives to join Cisco TelePresence calls with equal stature -- appearing life-size on Cisco
TelePresence 3000s and other endpoints.
The smaller footprint of the Cisco TelePresence 500 can give your organization the flexibility to
deploy this solution within personal offices to support intimate, remote one-on-one meetings or to
join large, multipoint Cisco TelePresence calls. The Cisco TelePresence 500 delivers the same
award-winning video, audio, and environmental features that create the immersive, face-to-face
experience consistent across the entire Cisco TelePresence portfolio.
The Cisco TelePresence 500 is ideal for joining large, multilocation group meetings, such as
operational reviews, status update meetings, and quarterly customer presentations. It also
supports personal meetings such as negotiations, job interviews, and personnel reviews.
The remarkable video clarity of the Cisco TelePresence 500 allows you to see every expression,
and the rich, CD-quality audio helps you hear every word. The ease of use and integrated,
optimized features make it easy to schedule and launch calls by just pushing a button. Integration
with the highly available Cisco network offers reliability, quality of service (QoS), and security,
giving you the confidence to use it for both internal and external meetings.
In addition, the Cisco TelePresence 500 integrates transparently with the rest of the Cisco
TelePresence portfolio to offer the same high-quality Cisco TelePresence experience, including:
The solution offers high-quality video at 720p and 1080p resolutions.
Specially designed, high-definition cameras provide high-quality, high-definition images,
with superior eye contact and no user operation required.
Full-duplex, CD-quality audio facilitates a full, natural conversation with no perceivable
latency. The clarity of the audio allows you and other participants to talk in relaxed or soft
voices and still be heard as if you are all in the same room. The microphone electronics are
carefully designed to eliminate interference from mobile devices and cell phones.
The specially designed unit is optimized to ensure the best lighting and audio quality.
Cisco TelePresence supports multipoint meetings with up to 48 locations in any
combination of Cisco TelePresence endpoints.
You need to push only one button; like the other Cisco TelePresence endpoints, the Cisco
TelePresence 500 integrates with common enterprise calendaring programs to enable easy
call start and controls.

Impromptu call support: The Cisco TelePresence 500 supports impromptu calls; it allows
you to be in person anywhere there is a Cisco TelePresence endpoint, with just a phone
Integration with the network helps ensure reliability with high availability, security, and QoS
for an optimal experience with every call. Highly secure communications are enabled
through encryption of both video and call signaling.
The system is interoperable with traditional standards-based video endpoints with the Cisco
TelePresence Multipoint Switch.
You can conduct both intra- and intercompany Cisco TelePresence meetings with this
