TANDBERG Unveils Quick Set C20 Video Conferencing Solution for SMBs

The TANDBERG Quick Set C20 provides absolute quality in a compact, scalable, affordable plug-and-play solution
  • 18 June, 2009 11:03

<p>Sydney (June 18, 2009) – Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) will lead the economic recovery in large part due to their ability to be more nimble and responsive to opportunities. Today, TANDBERG announced that in an effort to help SMBs gain a competitive edge, the company has unveiled the TANDBERG Quick Set C20, the first-of-its-kind 1080p video conferencing solution designed specifically to meet the unique needs of SMBs. Now, implementing high-quality, easy-to-use visual communications solutions, or expanding existing solutions, is simple and affordable without compromising on quality.</p>
<p>“TANDBERG predicts that SMBs will recover faster than many larger companies and we plan to help them succeed,” said Phil Siefert, Regional Director ANZ, TANDBERG. “We are very excited to introduce the TANDBERG Quick Set C20 as the first offering of its kind – providing absolute quality video at a price point within the reach of smaller businesses. With 1080p team video conferencing, small and medium sized companies are able to appear larger. Video enables a lean staff to increase customer face time and reduce travel expenses; recruit top talent no matter where they are located; and build a culture around collaboration which will help SMBs adapt to changing realities. There’s no doubt that the most innovative and productive SMBs of today will be the large corporations of tomorrow.”</p>
<p>Comprising 90% of the world’s workforce, SMBs are focused now more than ever on innovative ways to leverage opportunities and reduce operating costs. By eliminating the need for travel – whether a six hour flight to meet with a customer, or one hour spent in traffic travelling to a local office – the Quick Set C20 helps reduce costs and improve productivity, while bringing together employees, customers, remote experts and suppliers to make faster, smarter decisions - all with an immediate return on investment.</p>
<p>In the past, smaller businesses dismissed video conferencing as a technology for larger global corporations, but that’s no longer the case. TANDBERG customer Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, a firm with a staff of 350, cut costs and increased productivity with team video conferencing. “Video conferencing means we can truly work across boundaries to collaborate on projects. It’s a huge boon for productivity and I wish we’d done it sooner,” said David Hughes, CEO, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects.</p>
<p>“SMBs are increasingly becoming remote, heightening their need for effective conferencing solutions to carry on normal business operations. Video conferencing, while very effective, has traditionally required expensive equipment and resources, making it uneconomical for this group,” said Roopam Jain, Principal Analyst – Conferencing &amp; Collaboration, Frost &amp; Sullivan. “The TANDBERG Quick Set C20 is unique in that it provides a plug-and-play high-definition video conferencing solution at an attractive price point that is easy to install; a requirement for many SMBs who have limited IT resources. Moreover, the high-quality visual and audio experience, coupled with the ability to get enhanced features through a simple software upgrade instead of requiring new expensive hardware makes the Quick Set C20 a great value for SMBs.”</p>
<p>The TANDBERG Quick Set C20 is a complete visual communication package that includes a TANDBERG Codec C20, a high-resolution 1080p30 camera with 4x zoom, a remote control and a microphone. The system can be plugged into any high definition display for immediate video conferencing capabilities. In just five simple steps users connect the 1) camera, 2) display, 3) power, 4) network and 5) microphone and are ready to connect face-to-face with colleagues, customers, and suppliers anywhere in the world.</p>
<p>The TANDBERG Quick Set C20plus is an enhanced offering that comes with a 12x zoom camera and the ability to select 1080p30 or 720p60 modes. Both Quick Set C20 packages have the ability to support dual screens for enhanced multi-media sharing and are supported by the TANDBERG Management Suite. Additionally, SMBs can rest assured that if they ever require multipoint conferences the award-winning line of high-definition TANDBERG MCUs will work with the Quick Set C20 to easily enable larger conferences in full 1080p30 high definition with a software upgrade scheduled for availability in early Q3.</p>
<p>The TANDBERG Quick Set C20 is currently available for purchase. For more information, please visit or contact</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
