DESCRIPTION 

Compact Set-top Unit
The TANDBERG 550 is a compact and portable set-top box that can be used with any standard television set. Its distinctive professional design fits well into any small meeting room or office.

Easy to Use
Equipped with an intuitive on-screen user interface and automatically activated remote control, TANDBERG products are designed for even the most non-technical of users. Setting up a videoconferencing call on the TANDBERG 550 is as simple as making a telephone call, just dial the number and push the CONNECT button.

Outstanding Audio and Video Quality
Videoconferencing should be as natural as possible. Through Intelligent Call Management, the TANDBERG 550 automatically configures itself to the best possible audio and video quality, guaranteeing the highest level of performance and the most natural of meeting environments, without the need for user intervention. Unlike traditional videoconferencing, TANDBERG systems operate with native video resolutions. The images maintain their true resolution, rather than being scaled to adapt to various formats. This is of particular benefit to users of NTSC and SVGA resolutions.

Hear All Participants Clearly
The Noise Reduction feature ensures clear sp each transmission by eliminating surrounding noise, even when the video conference takes place in a noisy environment. In addition, Automatic Gain Control ensures that no matter where individuals are located and regardless of the volume at which they speak, they will be heard at the same level in all remote sites. Even when the acoustic environment varies, the system is optimised to rapidly respond to these changes.

Capture a Wide View
The wide angle of the TANDBERG 550´s integrated camera ensures that each person is clearly seen at the remote site.

Presentations Made Easy

The Presenter Package:
• Read with Ease – Digital Clarity automatically transmits live images from PCs and document cameras at a resolution four times that of standard videoconferencing quality (4CIF/4SIF), providing brilliant colours and crisp images.

• Easy PC Connection – PC SoftPresenter lets you connect your PC to the videoconferencing system using software and the Local Area Network (LAN). When “PC” is selected from the remote control, the PC and the video system will show the same live image on their monitors.

Streaming
The Streaming function sends images and sound to PCs linked to the Local Area Network (LAN). It is an excellent tool for broadcasting a speech or a presentation.

“On-the-Fly” Network Selection
A variety of bandwidth speeds and network selections are available on the TANDBERG 550 for specific applications and individual needs. The system will automatically detect whether the user is making an IP or ISDN call.

Reliability Ensured
A successful video conference depends on reliable connections without network interruptions. The unique Down speeding feature maintains the call in progress, while the SoftMux further enhances reliability.

Secure Connections
Embedded encryption technology ensures complete confidentiality in point-to-point calls.

Effective Video Terminal Management
TANDBERG systems can be monitored, managed and maintained from a central web portal using the TANDBERG Management Suite. In addition, everyone in the organization will be able to reserve a system and schedule a meeting, right from their desktops.
