Overview

Collaborate more efficiently with this powerful, easy to use videoconferencing system that’s ideal for mission-critical business communications plus broadcast and higher education applications.
This powerful yet easy-to-use Full HD videoconferencing system offers superb picture and sound quality, plus versatile collaboration tools and flexible configuration.

Smooth, detail-packed Full HD (1080p) images at up to 60 fps make the PCS-XG100S ideal for mission-critical business communications, as well as broadcast, higher education and medical/healthcare applications.

Crystal-clear images from the PTZ camera (not included with PCS-XG100S) are complemented by clear, natural sounding stereo audio. ‘Dual stream’ Full HD video and PC presentations can be shared seamlessly with remote locations at 30 fps.

See ‘Near’ and ‘Far’ camera images plus PC presentations with exceptional layout flexibility on one, two or three connected video monitors.

The optional integrated MCU allows multi-point conferences over IP & ISDN between up to six sites, expandable to nine sites over IP via a simple software option installation. What’s more, two PCS-XG100S systems can be cascaded without additional hardware to link 16 sites simultaneously. HD conferences can be recorded to USB memory for easy sharing and review.

Set-up is refreshingly straightforward, with quick booting so you’re ready for business faster. Operation is easy, too: just select a contact using the supplied remote commander to launch your conference at a touch.

Also available as PCS-XG100/PCS-XG100H ‘bundled version’ with SRG-120DH PTZ camera.

Features

Express yourself clearly with Full HD 60p images
Communicate more clearly and effectively with smooth, detail-packed video conferences at up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) 60p resolution for exceptional realism. You’ll even enjoy HD picture quality at low bitrates when network bandwidth is limited.
Smooth 30fps Full HD dual streaming
Send dual HD 1080p video streams simultaneously (camera image and PC presentation) at a smooth 30 frames per second in accordance with H.239 standards. The other conference party can see both Full HD (1920 x 1080) images simultaneously on two connected monitors.
Instantly recall up to 100 camera positions
The PCS-XG100S allows instant recall of up to 100 pre-programmedpositions from a connected PTZ camera (not included), permitting quick transition from one camera set-up to another.
See everything with triple monitor mode
Support for three video monitors allows full-size simultaneous views of ‘Far’ and ‘Near’ video sources (via HDMI) on two separate screens, plus a third screen (via DVI-I) showing smooth, crisply detailed PC presentations.
Three images, one monitor
If you’ve only got one monitor, up to three separate images (Far, Near and PC) can be displayed simultaneously with a choice of screen layout options: Full Screen, PinP, PandP, Side by Side or PandPandP.
High quality stereo audio
Two supplied PCS-A1 mono microphones ensure more natural, lifelike conferences with crisp, clear stereo sound. The built-in echo canceller makes speech even more natural-sounding and easier to follow.
Easy multi-point conferences
The in-built Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) allows simultaneous connection between up to six videoconferencing sites. Adding optional PCSA-MCG109 software expands multi-point capabilities to link nine sites via IP connection. Two PCS-XG100S units can also be cascaded to support a maximum of 16 sites, with no additional hardware needed.
Continuous Presence mode with Voice Activation Switching
See everyone clearly with support for three-, four-, six- or nine-screen continuous-presence modes. Voice Activated Switching automatically displays the active speaker on the largest sub screen alongside other participants, or can display the current speaker in full-screen mode.
Easy usability with Video Annotation
Add an optional tablet/pen interface to sketch notes and highlight your point clearly on shared data presentations.
Stable, consistent conferencing
Enjoy stable transmission of HD video, voice and data with Enhanced Intelligent QoS™ (Quality of Service) Functions that ensure fast, consistent data throughput that adapts transmission to take account of changing network conditions.
USB recording
Record HD video (720p), voice and PC presentations direct to USB memory for easy storing and sharing.
Second camera support
Add up to two optional PTZ cameras (Sony SRG/BRC/EVI series models), giving greater freedom to ensure every meeting participant is adequately covered – for example when seated around a boardroom table.
HDMI input
Easily connect an additional video source – such as a camcorder or document camera – via HDMI.
Highly secure
Keep your business private, just the way it should be. Support for 128-bit AES encryption ensures safe, highly secure voice/video/data conferences with other compliant systems.
Easy operation and quick start-up
Enjoy simple operation with the attractive, intuitive on-screen interface. Quick start-up from initial switch-on has you ready to start conferencing in less than a minute – far faster than many other systems.
One-touch Dialling
Enjoy the speed and convenience of one-touch dialling with the newly designed RFZ Remote Commander unit that does not have to be pointed directly towards the system. Just browse and select from the thumbnail image any of up to 1000 stored contacts: up to four regularly-accessed contacts can be shown on the home screen.
Easily switch between LAN and WAN connections
Dual network interfaces allow easy switching between office-base LAN and WAN connections – saving time if you need to use the system both within an intranet environment and over the public Internet. Multi-point connections can also be made between LAN and WAN environments.
