Cisco Debuts One Screen, One-Camera TelePresence System

Cisco unveiled a one-screen, one-camera Cisco TelePresence system for multipurpose conference rooms. The system targets branch offices or other areas where deployment over a T-1/E-1 or broadband Internet connection is suitable.

The new Cisco TelePresence System 1100 uses the standard 65-inch plasma screen and fits in small, general-use meeting rooms. When not being used for virtual meetings, it also functions as a high-quality audio conferencing device, as an auxiliary display for presentations, or as a digital sign, utilizing integrated Cisco Digital Media Player functionality.

The Cisco TelePresence System 1100 uses the same industrial design as the Cisco TelePresence System 1300 Series. It interoperates with standards-based video conferencing at SD and HD resolutions, and Web-based conferencing applications such as Cisco WebEx.

Cisco noted that AT&T, BT, Orange, NTT, Tata Communications, Telefonica, Telstra, and most recently Telmex, have all announced commercial intercompany Cisco TelePresence services, enabling the more than 350 organizations that have already selected Cisco TelePresence.
