Polycom Introduces iPower
Inc. has made available to its channel partners the new iPower Executive, a
system that combines an integrated PC, a camera, dual side-by-side 15-inch
flat-panel, high-resolution LCD display and a high-fidelity sound system on a
single desktop pedestal.
The iPower Executive is designed for
use in the office, home or small conference room, where space is limited. It
delivers business-quality video, Polycom’s Siren 14 for CD-like audio and
integrated collaboration capabilities. Its integrated pan-tilt-zoom camera
supports voice tracking enabling the camera to move automatically with the
speaker. The dual LCD side-by-side displays enable natural sharing of
People+-Content in a video call for simultaneous face-to-face communications and
real-time data sharing and collaboration.
The iPower Executive is available in
two models — the iPower Executive single-BRI for support of ISDN video
communications up to 128kbps and the iPower Executive quad-BRI with support for
ISDN video communications up to 512kbps. The two models support IP
communications up to 768kbps for wired or wireless connection to the corporate
LAN, DSL or cable modem.
The iPower Executive single-BRI is
priced at USD $11,499 and the iPower Executive quad-BRI is USD $14,499. Shipping
for the two were expected to begin during the second quarter in North America
and during the third quarter throughout the rest of the world.
