Polycom, a provider of telepresence, video and voice communication systems, has unveiled an enterprise video communications and conference platform that boasts broadcast quality images for virtual meetings and collaboration sessions.
The company said that the RMX 2000 V4.0 has been optimised for use across a number of sites, and includes industry first features including 1080p and 720p high-definition (HD) quality images.
"The Polycom RMX 2000 is a part of our complete visual communication network infrastructure solution that helps organisations of all sizes effectively deploy, provision and manage on-demand video services," said Joe Sigrist, senior vice president and general manager of video solutions at Polycom.
The firm claimed that the system is future-proof, and addresses existing and emerging use issues ranging from broad-scale desktop video collaboration to specialised industry applications and traditional video conferencing.
"The future-focused RMX 2000 platform is designed for HD applications like telepresence, and is the only conference platform that delivers the full range of HD video resolution support up to 1080p," said Sigrist.
"It is also the only platform that can be optimised for either pure HD or mixed-resolution environments, giving customers the flexibility to adapt their infrastructure as application needs change."
The system can also upscale lower quality communications from firms with smaller connections. For example, a stream in low resolution can be sharpened to DVD quality, while a standard definition video call can be upscaled to HD.
The Polycom RMX 2000 V4.0 is available now starting at £28,000.
