Sony, number three in the group video endpoint market behind Polycom and Tandberg, today announced the PCS-11, a videoconferencing endpoint for small and medium size conference rooms. The PCS-11 (view image) comes with both ISDN and IP capabilities as well as suppot for H.264 video and AES encryption for security. It operates a speed of up to 1M bit/sec, but Sony claims a television-like picture can be achieved at only 384K bit/sec using H.264. One cool feature is the “private notebook”, which allows phone numbers to be stored locally on Memory Stick media. Sony says the PCS-11 will be available in February with a suggested list price of $4,195.
