Cisco Spark Room 55 is a powerful, fully integrated collaboration system that brings more intelligence and usability to your small- to medium-sized meeting rooms, whether registered on-premises or to the Cisco cloud.

Cisco Spark Room 55 Overview

Cisco Spark Room 55 combines an unmatched video and audio experience with a sophisticated, Red
Dot–awarded design to create a compelling team collaboration system.

The Room 55, which includes camera, codec, display, speaker system, and microphones integrated in a single device, is optimized for rooms that seat up to seven people. It is an all-in-one, integrated system that’s easy to install, use, deploy, and manage. It’s crafted with high-quality components: professional 4K display for longevity and minimal latency, powerful digital zoom camera for discreet tracking, sophisticated speaker system and amplifier to deliver rich sound, and a light industrial design that combines aluminum and fabric for a sustainable and humanizing effect.

The Cisco Spark Room 55 has the Cisco Spark Room Kit as its base technology, bringing new capabilities such as speaker tracking, best overview, automatic wake-up, and people count to enable even smarter meetings, smarter presentation capabilities, and smarter room and device integrations. These features and functionalities further remove the barriers to usage and deployment of video in small- to medium-sized meeting rooms. The Room 55 is rich in functionality and experience but is priced and designed to be easily scalable to all of your meeting rooms and spaces, whether registered on-premises or to Cisco Spark through the Cisco® Collaboration Cloud.
