Assembled CTS 1000 / 3000 systems

Freitag, März 16th, 2007

Romm preperation is very important for both systems. The light is the major factor. Also different soundlevels are needed. You need about 300 – 400 lux in the view to the camera from 9 different areas in the room. The measurement is done in the direction to the camera not to the ceiling.

Also the silence in 6 areas of the room is measured, with AC turned on. And the reflection of noise. There are several tools for measuring this. Cisco is very picky on these values.

Here the carton for the camara adjustments is just flipped around. On the picture it’s fixed in the wrong way.

RA Room Assessment / CTS

Mittwoch, März 7th, 2007

Currently doing the room assessment for the CTS 3000. The room is new designed and equipped only for the CTS 3000 system. There is a light and sound measurement. AC is needed for the whole room, because the three plasma displays and the code will produce a lot of heat. The whole system need about 8000 Wats. Here is a first picture of the room for the CTS 3000. We will start to assemble a 1000 and a 3000 system tomorrow. The 1000 should take about 1 day, but the 3000 will be about 3-5 workdays. We will do that in a team with cisco together.

Cisco TelePresence

Currently i’m in the respone of installing the first telepresence system in europe. Yesterday we meet with three cisco technicans near munich at the customers site and prepared the ready assessment for the room. It’s a CTS 1000 and CTS 3000 system. The 1000 system is the small one with only one plasma display and the 3000 system is the one with 3 plasma displays. Cisco does a lot in preparing the room to meet the requirements. Sound, light and apearance is very important. There have to be a lot of measurements to be done. It will be cisco’s first installation in europe.

So currently i’m in the response of assembling the CTS system at three different places. Two in Germany and one in France (Paris).

I’m now one month of from learning. Work does take a lot of time. But i hope i will be able to get back soon to learning.
