Unified Communications Spotlight – the Cisco DX80
We’ve talked a lot about the benefits of unified communications and how it can power up your corporate communications. Now, it’s time to get down to business. So, we’re going to be putting pieces of the revolutionary Cisco kit in the spotlight to really demonstrate how this could translate for you and your company. Here, we are looking at the Cisco DX80.
What is it?
The Cisco DX80 is an all-in-one video conference system and comes with Spark enablement. It is the desktop modern collaboration tool to bring the meeting to you with high-quality speakerphone audio for calling capabilities, high-definition video conferencing, a large 23-inch touch-screen and a whole host of unified communication features. Also, it looks great and offers robust business communication along with an intuitive user interface.
The best bits
- It is a Spark enabled device.
- Meet with colleagues without leaving your desk, even if you have teams working remotely, nationally or internationally.
- Enjoy the familiarity of the touch-screen technology we’re used to on our phones and tablets on your office desktop technology.
- Video conferencing will build better working relationships to foster closer professional partnerships, make virtual teams more productive and develop a one-team mentality.
- Set-up of the Cisco DX80 is simple – any of the DX suite of devices can be set up within minutes. Plug in, go through the simple setup wizard, authenticate and go. Unpack it that morning and make your meetings come to you that afternoon.
- Although you do not need additional accessories to get up and running, scale up your technology with wideband audio handsets as well as Bluetooth or USB headsets.
- Impress your clients and co-workers with the ‘automatic wake-up’ function, which detects when someone enters the room, says hello and provides guided instructions on how to use the Cisco DX80 within moments.
- Need to show your meeting participants something on your desk or elsewhere in the room? Just tilt the camera downwards to capture what you need.
- The Cisco DX80 means you can share both PC and Mac content when in a meeting. Or, if you want to, use it as an external monitor too when plugged into a laptop. Whichever works for you.
Now, there’s a full breakdown of everything you can expect from the Cisco DX80 here. The highlights include:
- An always-on HD video conferencing system to facilitate the ultimate of collaboration.
- A 23-inch, 16:9, backlit, capacitive touchscreen LCD with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution.
