The new Polycom CX5500 Unified Conference Station delivers enterprise grade video and audio collaboration capabilities in an easy-to-use system that can be plugged into a USB port on a laptop. The Polycom CX5500 also doubles as an IP conference phone when not used for Lync video calls. The CX5500 and CX5100 additions to Polycom’s CX series of Lync-optimized solutions are successors to the Polycom CX5000 HD Unified Conference Station. They retain the unique around-the-table, 360-degree, panoramic experience and deliver more than twice the HD video image quality, double the frame rate for life-like motion handling, and provide Polycom’s HD Voice for the highest quality audio (160Hz-22kHz) while adding a new interface and design and a lockable privacy cap. Active speaker resolution is 1920x1080p (16:9) when used in a Lync 2013 environment.
