Cisco TelePresence SX10 Quick Set

Video-Enable Your Small Collaboration Spaces

The Cisco TelePresence® SX10 Quick Set is an all-in-one unit designed to video-enable your small collaboration spaces, offering great affordability for small-to-medium businesses just starting out with telepresence. With the SX10 you can extend telepresence pervasively throughout your enterprise.

This low-cost, high-quality unit combines camera and codec into a single, compact device that is mounted over your standard flat-panel display and connects through a discreet single-cable system for Power over Ethernet (PoE). High-definition video is enabled with 1080p30 resolution, while a leadership wide-angle field of view provides the best overview even in small spaces.

High quality, simplicity, and affordability come together in the SX10 Quick Set to create a logical solution for video ubiquity (Figures 1 through 3).
