CX5500 Unified Conference Station

The CX5500 conference station delivers a 360-degree video camera conferencing experience, active speaker tracking with Skype for Business and can be used as a SIP speaker phone

Experience 1080p “around-the-table” video calls with Microsoft Skype for Business

The Polycom CX5500 Unified Conference Station delivers a unique HD voice and video collaboration experience in Skype for Business environments.

The CX5500 provides remote participants with 1080p HD active-speaker, video conferencing system that automatically tracks the flow of conversation. It also adds a unique 360-degree panoramic* view of the conference room. Meetings are more productive and participants are clearly heard with Polycom’s legendary HD Voice technology, now featuring a dynamic audio range of 160Hz to 22,000Hz. The CX5500 can also be used to place voice-only calls as an IP conference system and phone.

  • Reduce system setup costs with simple USB plug-and-play functionality that requires little or no training
  • Users connect a USB cable to their laptop and use the Skype for Business client they already know—no remote required
  • Lower support costs and realize a better ROI with increased room usage for collaboration and live video conferencing
  • No need to provision a second conference phone in the room—the CX5500 also doubles as an SIP conference phone when not used for Skype for Business video calls
