Cisco announces new solution updates at Enterprise Connect 2017, the industry’s largest collaboration event held this week in Orlando, Florida. The Spark Room Kit and Spark Room Kit Plus are the newest additions to the Cisco Spark portfolio; two exciting new solutions that aim to make every meeting room smarter.
The Cisco Spark Room Kit Series: team collaboration innovation in a box
The Cisco Spark Room Kit and Room Kit Plus are powerful collaboration solutions that integrates with flat panel displays to bring more intelligence and usability to meeting environments. These integrated solutions deliver the unmatched video and audio experience that we have come to expect from Cisco. In addition, new capabilities enable smarter presentations and even smarter meetings!
The Room Kit includes camera, codec, speakers, and microphones integrated into a single device – its ideal for meeting environments that seat up to 7 people. The Room Kit Plus includes a separate quad-camera bar and can accommodate larger meeting rooms of up to 14 people.
Both products offer outstanding audio and video. The built-in microphones capture voice and bring speaker-tracking capabilities to every meeting environment. The speakers are optimized for voice, lip sync, and echo cancellation. The advanced 5K UltraHD camera capabilities offers an unobtrusive fixed lens with automated intelligent framing. Both Room Kit and Room Kit Plus are hardware-optimized to run on a cloud platform but are also built for on-premises environments.
Cisco Spark deliver high-quality, next-generation meeting experiences to every room
Cisco also unveiled some exciting new innovations that show where artificial intelligence can take collaboration. This includes intelligent framing and face & voice recognition. These features automatically detects who in the room is speaking and selects the best camera framing for that person. Soon we will be able to place calls via voice commands and the system will recognize attendee faces and label them with their names. These future capabilities present groundbreaking opportunities for both automated calling and content delivery based on a meeting’s participants. Now that is impressive!
