About Polycom Video Conferencing

The advent of email and instant messaging made communications swifter than ever before. Digital inboxes and outboxes expedite the delivery of important messages to single or multiple recipients. Using text in this way is critical to many businesses, but it shouldnít be a primary means of communications.

Communicating face-to-face is still proven as the most effective means of collaborating, problem solving and creating relationships. However, we canít meet in person all of the time, or itís just not cost effective. Enter video conferencing.

Polycom video conferencing product offerings range from smartphone and mobile solutions, to fully immersive meeting room solutions. The products are designed to make virtual meetings seem as lifelike as possible, which promotes more natural productivity through conversation and cooperation.

Five quick reasons to choose Polycom video conferencing systems
  1. Interoperable with existing protocols like H.323 and SIP
  2. Optimized for Skype for Business and Microsoft Lync
  3. HD video, audio and content sharing
  4. Expandable with first- and third-party accessories
  5. Easy to use and incredible intuitive experiences

Polycom video conferencing solutions by series

Polycom has divided its video conferencing solutions into different series, each with their own unique feature set and purpose. It can be maddening to click on every product on a website like this and hope youíll eventually find the right solution. On top of that, you might not understand what half of the features are that are built into each of these systems.

Polycom CX Video Conferencing Series

The video conferencing systems in the Polycom CX series will soon be renamed the Polycom RoundTable series. For now, until Skype for Business is released, they will remain the CX series. The systems are specifically designed for Microsoft Lync (soon to be Skype for Business).

Polycom Group Series Video Conferencing

The primary members of this Polycom series are the Group 300, Group 500 and Group 700 systems. The Group series is Polycomís flagship video conferencing experience, offering the latest and greatest in collaboration and communications technology. A plethora of patented and future-proof technology readies these systems for anything and everything.

The Polycom Group 300 video conferencing system supports high-definition video, content sharing and more licensable features. Set up the system in a small meeting room, office or huddle space and enjoy a feature-rich video collaboration experience.

In the middle of the series is the Polycom Group 500 video conferencing system. Deploy the system in a variety of environments, ranging from small to large meeting rooms. The system is very flexible, able to support a number of features, like dual monitors and various expansion options.

Have lots of participants? Check out the Polycom Group 700 video conferencing system. The solution supports classrooms, large meeting rooms, lecture halls and other spaces with lots of people interacting at once. Customize and scale the system to your exact requirements and never miss a beat.

Polycom HDX Series Video Conferencing Systems

Polycomís HDX series can take on any task and theyíre one of the most expandable lines available. Bring many parties together through built-in multipoint, add several microphone arrays or connect several video devices to the systems. Optional modules also give the systems other connectivity types beyond IP-based.

Even more solutions!

Polycom also builds desktop systems that can be used as a second computer monitor when not in use for video conferencing. There are video network appliances, infrastructure software, audio components and other equipment designed to bring video conferencing to any type of business or organization.

Alternatives to video conferencing

Why are email and instant messaging not effective? People can easily act or sound differently in text than they would in instant, real-time interactions. They have time to edit and craft their content, and they might take more extreme measures than usual. If you want proof of that, read some of the comments that people post on popular social media pages.

Voice conferencing or chatting through a phone is definitively more natural. The problem with this type of communications is that youíre still not seeing the person that youíre talking to. Hearing a human voice can give you subtle cues and force the person to act more naturally, but youíre missing the whole experience.

Receive the whole experience

Video conferencing lets you see a human face and everything that comes with it. Spoken words were one of the last forms of communications to develop (theoretically), so itís not a surprise that we rely on seeing someoneís body to form complete conclusions.

Nonverbal cues are a huge part of communications. You can see reactions, sense emotions and watch gestures. You can also read more into the context of whom youíre speaking with by viewing the room, seeing their clothing and examining postures. The way that the remote participants interact with each other can also play a large role.

Okay, so any type of video conferencing equipment can allow you to see face to face, so whatís so special about Polycom?

Everything, anywhere, anytime

Polycom video conferencing solutions feature technology like high definition audio and video, content sharing and easy to use interfaces. They are available in forms designed for rooms, to be carted between rooms, for desktops and for mobile devices. The systems let businesses reach out to customers, teleworkers and partners, help doctors check in with patients or talk to specialists in real time, create classrooms without borders, or give government agencies a better response to critical situations.

The extent to which Polycom video conferencing equipment is being used is unparalleled. Expansions like additional sound and visual equipment, and the ability to bring your own devices into the mix enable Polycom video conferencing systems to take on any task in any environment.

Polycom video conferencing takes shape

Polycom is usually recognized for its outstanding conference phones and desk phones. The audio quality of these devices is superb, based on Polycomís years of telecommunications experience and hundreds of technology patents.

The companyís founders were among the first members of PictureTel, a video conferencing manufacturer. Polycomís roots were always in video conferencing. In 2001, Polycom acquired PictureTel to expand their video conferencing knowledge and the rest is history.

Now, Polycom manufactures a wide range of video conferencing products, including the popular Polycom Group series.

Microsoft recognizes Polycom video conferencing

Partnering with a giant like Microsoft is a big deal. Skype for Business is Microsoftís latest unified communications platform. The Polycom RoundTable series was the first line of products to be announced for Skype for Business.

All of Polycomís video conferencing systems are optimized for Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business. Microsoft Lync has been retired, but many businesses likely still use it. Skype for Business is the newest unified communications platform, promising a friendly user interface so anyone can use it.

Popular features and accessories

Polycom EagleEye Cameras

Polycom video conferencing systems are often bundled together with cameras, microphone arrays and other accessories. The EagleEye cameras are the most advanced, with models like the EagleEye IV offering a 4k image sensor. These cameras have their own accessories too, like the EagleEye Producer that can sense motion detection and provide room usage analytics.

Polycom Media Center

The Polycom Group series and HDX series are available in Media Center bundles. These bundles include monitors and cabinets to create an all-in-one solution that can be deployed on desktops or wheeled from room to room.

Polycom SmartPairing

If you have a tablet, youíre in luck! You can use it with your Polycom video conferencing system if it includes SmartPairing technology. The Group series, for example, offers this technology. The tablet can be used to interact with and manage calls.

Content Sharing

Content sharing enables the systems to host real-time collaboration sessions. Share presentations, slideshows and video, or view important documents on the screen. Upload a Microsoft Word document, for example, and the parties can interact with the document together (assuming both systems support this technology). Edit and annotate the document, and produce a final copy in a truly collaborative environment.

The Polycom People+Content IP application is used to share content from a PC or Mac to a compatible video conferencing system.

Dual Monitors

Video conferencing systems with multiple video outputs can often support more than one monitor. The benefit is that you can see a presentation or document on one screen, and view remote conference participants on the other. Some systems support more than two monitors, ideal for content-heavy meetings.

Nowís the time to adopt video conferencing

Home offices, small businesses, large businesses and enterprises are increasingly adopting video conferencing technology. The benefits of communicating face-to-face are exponential, but travelling across the country all of the time can be expensive.

Polycom video conferencing solutions bring together businesses, doctors and patients, classrooms and knowledge, and government agencies with people that need them the most. The state-of-the-art video, content sharing and resources available to Polycom video conferencing systems make them as top-of-the-line solutions for collaboration and communications.
