RoundTable

Microsoft RoundTable is a videoconference phone. The device was developed for use with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Live Meeting 2007.

The active speaker is automatically portrayed in high-resolution, full-motion video as the device analyzes speech and ambient sound to follow the flow of conversation from speaker to speaker. The entire audio and video content of a meeting can be recorded and stored for future reference or viewing. Users can fast-forward or rewind in a recorded meeting to reference the most relevant sections.

Physically, the RoundTable hardware measures approximately 35 x 36 x 36 cm (a little more than a cubic foot) in volume. The camera resolution is 3700 by 600 pixels and it can operate at 12.5 or 15 frames per second. The device can be connected to a computer using a USB cable.
