3M Australia says its VCS3100 Multi-Point (MP) videoconferencing system is for "organisations wishing to extend their remote meeting capabilities beyond standard point-to-point ISDN videoconferencing".
The system provides in-built four-point conferencing capabilities without requiring the purchase of a multipoint control unit. In voice-activated mode, all four sites view the person speaking; in continuous presence mode, the screen is broken into four quadrants, allowing participants to be viewed simultaneously.
Other features are automatic voice tracking, automatic picture in picture and built-in Web server.
The 3M VCS3100 MP will be available in the 4th quarter at a suggested retail price of less than $30,000. For further information or to arrange a demo call 1800 020 320 or visit http://www.3m.com/meetings/ams
