The new Polycom QSX appliance may be just the ticket for contacting a community of 1.7 million fellow conference system users. California-based Polycom, a global market leader in conferencing systems, claims that the QSX delivers instant and secure voice and content-sharing of its SoundStation conference phones. Priced at US$1,399, the QSX is installed under the table, in a closet or on a wall in a conference room or office. It connects a SoundStation conference phone, internet and a projector or display. Users connect their computer to QSX through a supplied cable, dial the phone and press the 'content share' button on the controller. A QSX meeting can support 15 sites.
