Product Overview

Transform any flat-panel display into a sleek and powerful video conferencing system with the Cisco TelePresence® SX20 Quick Set (SX20 Quick Set). We designed the SX20 Quick Set to deliver high-definition video and multiparty conferencing with the flexibility to accommodate various room sizes and configurations - all at a value price. It supports optional embedded multipoint support with Cisco TelePresence MultiSite technology, enabling users to add three additional participants to a video conference call.

Cisco SX20 Quick Set combines a powerful codec, premium resolution of 1080p, three camera choices, and a dual-display feature in an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution. Whether you're a small business just getting started with telepresence or a large enterprise looking to expand your existing deployment, the SX20 Quick Set delivers the performance you would expect from more expensive systems. And it provides it in a compact, feature-rich, and affordable package. Cisco TelePresence SX20 Quick Set is designed to truly extend the power of in-person communications to everyone, everywhere (Figures 1 and 2).
