VideoCentric first in the UK to demonstrate Polycom's latest VC systems...new for 2009.

VideoCentric (http://www.videocentric.co.uk) will be the first in the UK to demonstrate two new Polycom videoconferencing systems, the Full HD 8006 and the High Resolution QDX6000.

Starting in March, VideoCentric's new demonstration suite will boast Polycom's two newest systems …The Full-HD 8006 model and the Hi-Res (4CIF) QDX6000 model enabling customers to compare them with other standard and high definition systems from Polycom as well as with those from the other leading manufacturers, Tandberg, SONY, Emblaze-VCON and Lifesize. VideoCentric will also be demonstrating both new models at customer's own premises across England, Scotland and Wales using high speed public internet connections or a customer's own data network.

When asked about the entry-level Polycom system, David Shimell, Sales Director for VideoCentric said, "The low price and high performance of the QDX 6000, particularly where internet bandwidth is limited, makes it easy for small organisations to justify purchasing two or three systems to gain a rapid return on their investment (RoI). Those who have never conferenced before, or those that have had poor quality experiences in the past will benefit immediately from increased productivity, faster decision making, smarter working practices and lower travel costs at a time when efficiency of staff and resources needs to be at a premium". He added, "The ability to also show an image from a PC, a DVD player or visualiser on the same screen, a second screen or a projector as well as enjoying CD-quality audio and high resolution video makes it ideal for organisations who need to discuss any visual material with fine detail such as textiles, architect drawings, manufacturing plans, web page design, financial spreadsheets, graphs, charts, forecasts as well as for transmitting live SMART Board annotations for corporate training and school teaching applications".

The high-end HDX8006 offers the same extensive feature-set but with Full 1080-P HD capability for those with higher levels of bandwidth on their LAN, WAN, VPN, MPLS networks. It comes complete with a new Polycom Eagle-Eye camera (based on the excellent Sony HD1 optical technology) and can support HD multi-way videoconferencing without the need for an external MCU, although for bandwidth efficiency reasons, VideoCentric still recommends hosting a separate high performance MCU at its data centre where plentiful bandwidth can be assured and where the same bridging unit can be shared by other regional divisions parts of the same organisation or with external customers & suppliers, thereby avoiding issues surrounding video firewall management and inter-IT-department conflict.
