Stunning 1080/60p*1 HD Video Images with View-DR
Superb MPEG4 AAC Audio Quality with New Echo Canceller
The PCS-XC1 adopts the H.264 high-efficiency video codec to bring you smooth and
natural HD 1920 x 1080/60p broadcast-quality images.
Stunning HD video enhances your videoconferencing with lifelike images, and gives
you a wider range of ways to use visual communication. The PCS-XC1 also enables
simultaneous 30-fps transmission of HD conference video and an H.239-complaint PC
screen image, both at 1,920×1,080*1 resolution.
The PCS-XC1 supports a new and sophisticated echo canceller. By further evolving
conventional echo-cancelling technology, Sony has achieved a solution capable
of adjusting properly collected sound levels according to their distance from the
system and according to the installation environment.
With these capabilities, the unit captures clear voices even when the people who
are speaking are a distance away from the microphone, ensuring comfortable
communication.
Furthermore, this unit incorporates Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensor and View-DR
technology. These features optimize the brightness of each pixel, enabling the
PCS-XC1 to deliver clear images even in dimly lit rooms when using a projector, or in
rooms with poor backlighting conditions.

Wireless LAN Connectivity*2 Backed by Sony’s Intelligent QoS
To activate the wireless function of the
PCS-XC1, simply install an optional
PCSA-WXC1 wireless software license and a
wireless LAN module in the USB port. Then
whenever you carry this unit into wireless LAN
range, you can instantly access video and
audio communication.
The PCS-XC1 incorporates an enhanced Intelligent QoS system. This works
optimally even in an unstable wireless network environment, controlling and greatly
reducing video artifacts caused by packet loss, regardless of the transmission
distance. The following three methods are applied adaptively in accordance with
the network condition: Adaptive FEC (Forward Error Correction), Real-time ARQ
(Automatic Repeat reQuest), and ARC (Adaptive Rate Control).

Other Features and Benefits
Multiple Display Layout
Users can select the following display layouts: Full Screen, Picture-in-Picture (PinP),
Picture-and-Picture (PandP), Picture-and-Picture-and-Picture (PandPandP), and a
Side-by-Side split screen. By selecting any of these flexible display patterns, both
videoconferencing images and presentation data can be displayed in ways that
are effective and pleasing to the eye.
Full Screen
The PCS-XC1 is equipped with two USB ports - one on the front panel and one
on the rear panel - which are for HD recording to USB 2.0 memory. HD video and
audio can be streamed out as multicast streaming (up to 10 sites) or unicast
streaming via a web interface.

Video Annotation Function*
For effective communication, the PCS-X1 supports a video annotation function.
Conference participants can clearly point out specific parts of shared data,
including live images and presentation data, by simply writing on a tablet.
This function can help you minimize time and effort in your communication, and
allow you to deliver a clear and strong message. This function works from both
local and remote sites bi-directionally.
* A commercially available third-party tablet device is required.

By installing an optional PCSA-SAG1 mobile access software license, the system
can connect directly from a smartphone and a tablet installed with IPELA
Communication Mobile software (both Android and iOS versions are available).
Intuitive GUI and Convenient RF Remote Commander
An ergonomically designed RF remote commander makes dialing easy – just
press the button to specify the thumbnail image of any contact registered on the
menu GUI. Unlike an IR (infrared ray) remote commander, an RF (radio frequency)
commander is omnidirectional, and can transmit a command from any direction.
