The Polycom CX5000 unified conference station, available from Adtec Communications , adds a unique group voice and video collaboration experience to Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007. The Polycom CX5000 unified conference station gives remote participants a 360-degree panoramic view of the conference room and video that automatically tracks the flow of conversation for more productive and efficient meetings.
The Polycom CX5000 unified conference station solution brings video, voice, and content together through Microsoft Live Meeting 2007, either as a hosted service or through Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007. A 360-degree panoramic view of the entire room is sent to all far-end participants, providing a continuous view of everyone in the meeting room. In addition, a second video view of the active speaker is also sent, using advanced technology that automatically focuses on the current speaker and tracks the flow of conversation so that the active speaker can always be identified.
Both of these video views plus the content being shared are all shown on the same screen for remote participants who are connected to the same Live Meeting 2007 session. When the conference station is used with the Office Communicator 2007 client in an Office Communications Server 2007 environment, the active speaker view is sent to all remote participants, bringing video, voice, and instant messaging into one seamless experience.
