We delivered Cisco's flagship Telepresence unit, the IX5000, a full immersive communication experience with integrated audio, video and data conferencing captured in a modern, sophisticated design. This product was the most recognized of Cisco's brand unification on their Collaboration portfolio.

Every detail across 13 feet of electronics was addressed to create an experience that participants were in the same room, making for more effective communication and productive meetings. Here the cross mounted cameras were pulled up from the display area and visual geometry hidden.
Every detail was painstakingly integrated, from shadowless mic bars, integrated cable exit points, hidden venting/lighting/audio. Rethinking the components removed distractions to elevate people-centric conversation.
Using an innovative combination of recycled plastic fabric and pressure formed parts, the entire rear was crafted to meet thermal considerations, avoid the appearance of unsightly perforations, and reduce shipping costs.
Beneath the panels lay an operational architecture with internal labeling system that contributed to an easy installation with a significant reduction in assembly times. This singular program turned into an immediate 66% YoY increase for Cisco.
In the previous generation TX9000, we assisted in developing environment visuals to create a homogeneous room-to-room experience creating the illusion that meeting recipients were in the same room.
Lighting, fixture placement, wall accouterments, floor coverings and architectural elements were all controlled to create this balanced in-room experience. Clients are able to select their customized selections based on their requirements.

Concept + Storyboarding
From storytelling to integrating hardware concepts, we captured design while exploring materials, processes and drivers to bring the next generation of hardware forward.
WIth the Unified IP Phone 8900 Series, users received enhanced collaboration capabilities in an elegant design for desktop or wall mount configurations. Usability studies helped define the DX series of phones, complete with Cisco's first security enhanced Android interface.

From usability to form, this work kicked off the re-branding of Cisco's entire IP phone portfolio and eventually the Collaboration portfolio. Check out our other Cisco entry to see the kickstart on re-branding integration of Cisco's Professional Series of product with the Unified Compute Services (UCS) product line.
