The Polycom HDX 4000 solutions are complete, integrated video conferencing systems elegantly designed to fit on an executive desktop as a personal system, at a small table, or in a small conference room to support up to four people on camera. HDX 4000 systems contain all necessary components including an integrated 20-inch 16:9 display that can double as a PC monitor; a built-in HD camera with pan-tilt-zoom capability; integrated dual HDX microphones, high-fidelity speakers and subwoofers; a powerful, standards-based HDX video conferencing codec; and a stand with an integrated keypad that allows users to dial or answer video calls just like a telephone.

Applications for the system include enhanced communication and collaboration among co-workers, partners, and customers, as well as a broad range of business applications that rely on small but critical details for a variety of industries, including merger and acquisition negotiations, outsource management, manufacturing processes, hiring procedures, customer and partner negotiations, and research and development design activities. The ability to simultaneously share content in high definition, such as architectural or CAD drawings, animation, movies, or images from HD document cameras such as detailed circuit boards, intricate fabrics, patient X-rays, etc., creates new opportunities to streamline and accelerate business processes in fields such as medicine and healthcare, education, manufacturing, filmmaking, fashion and design, advertising and more.
