The Cisco TelePresence SX80 Codec (SX80 Codec) provides a powerful and flexible platform for creating the ultimate video collaboration experience. The SX80 Codec was built with the integrator in mind, enabling flexibility and creativity for customized video collaboration rooms that delight the customer. The SX80 acts as the audio and video engine to incorporate high-definition video collaboration applications into large meeting rooms, boardrooms and purpose-built or vertical application rooms.

The SX80 delivers up to a 1080p60 end-to-end high definition (HD) video and offers industry-first support for H.265, which lays the foundation for future bandwidth efficiencies made possible by the new standard. The codec offers a rich input and output set, flexible media engine and support for three screens enable a variety of use cases, adaptable to your specific needs.

Figure 1. Cisco TelePresence SX80 Codec

Cisco offers three SX80 Integrator Packages to reduce the need for external equipment and the overall cost of enabling video in larger meeting rooms:

SX80 Codec and PrecisionHD 1080p 4x camera for smaller room scenarios

SX80 Codec and Precision 60 Camera, for lager room scenarios with the best image quality in the market

SX80 and the SpeakerTrack 60 dual camera system, which features a unique direct, fast switching approach for active speaker tracking

With its powerful media engine, the SX80 Codec lets you build the video collaboration room of your dreams.
