The Beam Pro allows users to interact with remote locations by coupling high-end video and audio with the freedom of motion to move about a space.

Break free from the conference room wall. Face-to-face interaction happens everywhere—you should be everywhere too.

See and be seen, hear and be heard, clearly and consistently. Beam Pro boasts two wide-angle cameras, a 6-microphone array that cancels echo and reduces background noise, a 17" 4:3 LCD screen, and a powerful built-in speaker.

With a top speed over 2 mph, keep up with anyone.

Beam Pro's battery provides 8 hours of active use (24 standby). When you're done, just drive Beam Pro into its dock to charge.

Be there every time, in real time. Two dual-band radios, or an optional 4G card, use proprietary roaming algorithms to provide seamless connectivity.

Beam Pro starts at $16,000. (April 2014 prices).
