Sony PCS-XC1 Portable Wireless HD Video Conferencing System

Easily hold high-quality videoconferences wherever there's a network connection available. Businesses, schools, and public organizations can communicate more effectively and spontaneously with the PCS-XC1 portable videoconferencing system, which includes an optional wireless capability (license required). Quick and easy to set up, this all-in-one solution lets conference participants share crisp sound and smooth, clearly-packed HD pictures over the internet with colleagues anywhere in the world. The high-quality pan/tilt/zoom camera captures smooth, finely-detailed video images that make virtual meetings more natural and immersive—even in low light or against harsh back-lighting where other VC systems struggle.

-Hold video-conferences virtually anywhere, even in small meeting rooms where space is at a premium. The all-in-one design allows easy portability and quick set-up without specialist technical know-how.

-The camera's highly sensitive Exmor® CMOS image sensor captures detailed HD video (720p) at a smooth 60 frames per second—even on dull days or in poorly lit meeting rooms. An optional Full HD (1080p) upgrade is available for even higher picture quality in critical applications.

-The pan/tilt/zoom camera can be controlled remotely with the supplied remote commander. The camera's wide maximum viewing angle ensures that every conference participant in the room can be seen clearly.

-Sony's advanced View-DR technology expands dynamic range to accommodate extremes of contrast in the same scene, such as when the presenter's face is backlit by a sunny window.

-Connect the optional PCS-A1 omnidirectional microphone to capture crisp digital sound, with on-board echo cancelling to ensure that every conference participant is heard loud and clear.

-The PCS-XC1 supports the highly efficient H.264 High Profile video coding scheme. Intelligent QoS (Quality of Service) adapts to network conditions, allowing a high-quality experience with fewer dropped frames and frozen pictures—even over low-bitrate network connections.

-Wi-Fi® capability (requires optional license) simplifies connection to any local wireless network (WLAN) in conference rooms, classrooms, hotel suites, or huddle spaces.

-HD video and audio can be stored directly onto a USB flash memory device for easy sharing, with no need for any additional recording hardware.

-Broadcast conferences live to one or more remote sites, with Multicast or Unicast streaming of HD video and voice via USB.
