The Polycom VVX 1500 D is a remarkably full-featured video phone and a workhorse for the corporate environment. Designed for user efficiency and flexibility, the VVX 1500 D sports a 7-inch thin-film-transistor LCD touchscreen display for one-touch voice and video calls, and for opening phone-based applications. The video phone is also presence-enabled, with easy-to-read indicator bars on screen, and makes multi-conferencing a snap. The telepresence feature displays you and your callers on monitors in a video conference room so that you can interact with all participants as if they're just across a table.

The Polycom VVX 1500 D provides an integrated open API Web browser, enabling developers to create custom applications to run on the phone, such as customer relationship management and other business apps. Network connectivity includes a two-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and 10/100/1000Base-TX LAN and PC ports. The six-line unit supports both H.323 video and Session Initiation Protocol telephony. Be sure to browse the lengthy specification list on the manufacturer's website for all the details.
