September 16, 2014 – VideoCentric, the UK’s leading Video Conferencing Integrator, has today announced their ability to fully demonstrate the entire Cisco SX Series range, including the Cisco SX10, SX20 and SX80 video collaboration endpoints, where it has been fully integrated into their multi-vendor video demonstration suite. Customers can now confidently compare each system, side-by-side, against each of their comparable competitor endpoints in an unbiased live environment.
The fully collaborative demonstration facilities at VideoCentric HQ in Berkshire have been expanded to include one of each of the SX series endpoints next to one of every other mainstream video conferencing system, desktop video client & mobile video client integrated into each of the world’s leading Video Communication Network infrastructures and Unified Communications Platforms.
The Cisco TelePresence SX80 has also been installed with the new Cisco SpeakerTrack 60 dual camera tracking system, which automatically tracks the most active people in the meeting and zooms into them accordingly. VideoCentric is able to demonstrate the SX80 in two ways, firstly controlled using Cisco’s new Touch-10 LCD panel supplied as standard with the SX80 and secondly controlled using AMX’s latest panoramic control unit for larger rooms – designed & programmed by VideoCentric’s in-house programming experts – where multiple external devices also need to be controlled.
“We are really excited to now be able to demonstrate the full Cisco SX Series at our premises,” said Emily Shimell. “The SX20, since its release in 2011 has always proved to be a huge hit with customers looking for the highest quality video collaboration experience for meeting spaces and boardrooms, but now the SX80 also provides for those customers needing even higher integration capabilities, and the SX10 providing for customers with smaller spaces and lower budgets.”
In addition to Cisco video network components, the facilities also include Polycom RealPresence and the virtualised UVC platform from Lifesize. Each endpoint & infrastructure platform is also integrated with both Microsoft Lync 2010 and 2013, and are directly demonstratable with disruptive technologies including Pexip, BlueJeans and Vidyo.
“We have always strived to provide a comprehensive demonstration facility where each customer can feel comfortable in trying out the full range of solutions available on the market, without any bias from one manufacturer. With every system going through stringent testing with our expert technical & sales team before adding to our suite, customers can be assured that they leave understanding both the benefits and drawbacks of each solution, it’s suitability for their individual organisations requirements and most importantly, how it can be expertly supported for years to come,” added Shimell.
