Polycom Unveils RMX 2000 4.0

Polycom Inc. (PLCM) has announced Polycom RMX 2000 v4.0, a conference platform optimized for multisite visual communication.

Polycom RMX 2000 v4.0 supports HD video quality at 1080p at 30 frames per second (fps), broadcast-quality 720p (720p at 60fps) and 720p at 30fps. The RMX 2000 also supports Polycom’s Lost Packet Recovery technology, which improves the quality of video calls over IP networks during packet loss and network congestion.

Through Video Clarity, the Polycom RMX 2000 V4.0 can upscale and sharpen video images, providing enhanced video quality for lower-resolution video conferencing devices and video calls made at lower bandwidth speeds.

Polycom RMX 2000 v4.0 can be deployed in either a fixed or flexible resource (port) configuration. For the majority of customers who have video devices with different resolution capabilities and place calls at various speeds for different applications, the RMX 2000 offers Flexible Resource Capacity configuration, which dynamically allocates resources based on specific call requirements. New Fixed Resource Capacity configurations are designed for customers that have standardized on video endpoints with the same capabilities and that typically place video calls at the same call speeds and resolutions.

For HD only deployments, the bridge can support up to 40 simultaneous 720p 30fps video calls or up to 20 1080p 30fps or 720p 60fps video calls. For mixed resolution environments, it can support up to 160 simultaneous video calls, including 60 simultaneous DVD-quality video calls (4CIF, 480p). In addition, the platform also can support up to 800 voice-only calls.

For broader deployments, the RMX 2000 can be deployed in a distributed network architecture with the Polycom Distributed Media Application (DMA) 7000, which manages and distributes video calls across multiple Polycom RMX 2000 conference platforms. This allows enterprises to scale resources as needed and connect and utilize main and branch office infrastructure systems together as part of a single, seamless solution. A Polycom DMA 7000 can support up to 10 Polycom RMX 2000 servers working together as a single pool of resources.

Polycom RMX 2000 v4.0 is available at a base list price (with MPM+) of $46,500. Polycom solutions are available worldwide through certified Polycom channel partners.
