SpliceCom, the IP convergence company has announced the immediate availability of PCS 580G – the next-generation of its colour touch screen based, IP Phone.
The company says PCS 580G follows in the footsteps of the worlds first ‘keyless’ IP Phone, PCS 400, which was launched in early 2003 and PCS 410, a later updated version. Utilising their PCS 5xx telephone enclosure, SpliceCom have taken advantage of the latest advances in touch screen technology and processing power to deliver an all new flagship desktop phone.
SpliceCom claim the PCS 580G delivers images that are even brighter and clearer than its predecessor, offering an increased speed of response and wider viewing angle. Built around a large 800 x 480 pixel, full colour, widescreen touch display, the PCS 580G is the ideal vehicle for unifying IP Telephony with web-based applications. In addition to effortlessly delivering the high levels of intuitive usability more readily associated with Smart Phones, the PCS 580G’s in-built web browser allows it to remain a valuable desktop tool, even when it’s not being used to make or receive phone calls. Intranet pages, internet information, web based applications and images from web cams and IP Video cameras can all be viewed from the PCS 580G’s widescreen display. System Managers and Administrators can choose to automatically “push” these Web pages to the PCS 580G in direct response to a wide-variety of criteria; incoming CLI, number dialed, time of day/day of week, or physical devices such as alarms, sensors or push buttons.
In addition to adding the ability to view more directory entries, voicemail messages, missed call listings and last numbers dialed then ever before, by offering a completely new user interface, SpliceCom’s PCS 580G provides maximiser customers with the choice to decide what’s right for their business and where and how they want to access their unified communication and IT applications; on their desktop screen phone or on their PC. “The PC is a great multi-purpose business tool, with a desktop that will dynamically change in-line with the tasks or applications that are being used on it at any particular time,” says Sean Harding, SpliceCom’s CEO. “In contrast, the PCS 580G is a “sealed unit” providing valuable real estate on which business critical information and applications – and only business critical information and applications – can be displayed, all under the control of the IT Manager.”
“Our findings, based on seven years of real implementations to businesses of all sizes, shows that when the information that needs to be displayed is important, it needs to be shown in isolation rather than fighting to be seen on an already crowded screen.
Using the PCS 580G for this task offers both convenience and control when compared to a PC, which will invariably be in use for another task. It’s rather like a calculator. Every PC is supplied with this application, yet most people still choose to use a conventional calculator to save them opening up yet another window on their desktop,” concludes Harding.
SpliceCom’s PCS 580G IP Phone with its full colour widescreen touch display is available with immediate effect.
