Product Overview

The Cisco TelePresence ® VX Tactical (VX Tactical) brings the power of telepresence to field environments (Figure 1). Portable and ruggedized, the VX Tactical offers the benefits of mobility through a portable briefcase-style form factor and is ideal for use cases such as military, emergency response, and other industries such as oil and gas and construction where field work is required.
Designed to be used in harsh environments, the high impact plastic shell minimizes impact while an aluminum interior frame provides structural strength. The 17.5-inch screen is fully readable in sunlight, and the high-definition (HD) 1080p, 16 x 9 aspect ratio camera provides a quality image of the field user and environment. The unit is based on a Cisco TelePresence System SX20 Quick Set codec (SX20) and supports H.323, and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) dual stream up to 6 Mbps. You can also set up the VX Tactical in a mobile telepresence conference room scenario with an external microphone, camera, and monitor. (Figure 2). The SX20 codec supports embedded capability for multipoint support with Cisco TelePresence MultiSite technology, enabling you to add three additional participants to a telepresence call.
This high-definition video collaboration system is part of the Cisco TelePresence portfolio, which offers a total solution approach including content sharing, recording, firewall traversal, and management capabilities. Cisco TelePresence VX Tactical is designed to truly extend the power of in-person to everyone, everywhere.
