Microsoft RoundTable is a videoconferencing device with a 360-degree camera that is designed to work with Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 or Microsoft Office Live Meeting. RoundTable provides remote meeting participants with panoramic video of everyone sitting around the conference table. In addition, RoundTable contains active speaker detection technology that provides high-resolution video of the active speaker in a meeting, and tracks the flow of conversation in real time, switching between different meeting participants as they speak.

RoundTable is a plug-and-play USB device that also functions as a standard PSTN speakerphone.

RoundTable was invented and originally developed by Dr Ross Cutler at Microsoft Research. It runs under Windows CE.

As of the 14th April 2009 the Roundtable device is now known as the Polycom CX5000[1]. The device has an identical feature set but is branded as a Polycom unit.
