Possible Polycom Video Conferencing Mobile Case
GAEMS G155 case with integrated screen.
I will update this posting in the near future with more details and better pictures. In short, the goal was to make the HDX 6000, 7000, and 8000 Polycom Video Conferencing units more mobile using a GAEMS G155 case with integrated screen and speakers. Cost of the case is around $250 – $290. – http://compuexpert.com/g155/index.html
Some of you are thinking, why not use the Polycom Real Presence software with the Samsung Galaxy, iPad or Motorola Xoom or maybe a computer with desktop video conferencing software? We do use those in our organization already however, we have some projects where we need to use the hardware based equipment like the 6000, 7000 and 8000. The current mobile cases offered for those solutions are too expensive and bulky.
I have included pictures below of the case. You can see that the camera and camera cable would have to go in to a smaller separate case and be connected during a brief setup. Also I will be getting a shorter MIC, Camera and Ethernet cables to fit better in the case when it is closed. There are some other modifications and details that I will need to explain more in the future updates depending on what Polycom System you are wanting to use, IE: 6000, 7000, 8000.
Cost of the case is around $250 – $290.
I called the distribution company and worked with:
He was very helpful and is interested in what the demand may be for this case being used for video conferencing.
