Ricoh Upgrades Videoconferencing System

ricoh-conferencing-0616Ricoh just announced its Unified Communication System, the P3500M — the size of a laptop, the 3.5-pound device includes an HD camera, microphone and speakers that fit inside a soft-sided carrying case. Boasting the same simple startup as the P3500, the P3500M can be unpacked, plugged in, connected and made entirely ready in about 60 seconds. Additionally, its 2.0 megapixel camera includes a 125-degree wide-angle lens that can easily take in several participants in the room. Mobile workers can stay connected no matter what WebRTC-supportive platforms their collaborators are using.

The RICOH Unified Communication System P3500M can support numerous locations using a variety of collaboration technologies, with the ability to display nine locations simultaneously. The system includes business-class security features, such as encrypted data streams over wireless networks.

The RICOH Unified Communication System P3500M will be available in the summer and list for $2,639 plus subscription fee.

Here are the details.
