Polycom Introduces Interoperable Rich Media Communications Solution With HP And Microsoft To Make HD Video Collaboration Even Easier To Deliver, Scale, And Manage Enterprise-Wide

Stocks in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications (UC), today announced two new interoperable solutions with HP and Microsoft that combine Polycom ® RealPresence ® video solutions, HP Networking technology and services, and Microsoft Lync with joint reference architectures. Together, they make it easier to deliver, scale, and manage UC environments that keep employees connected via video, voice, and other communications apps from anywhere. The solutions bring together the key elements of UC and video collaboration, from the networking and UC platform to high-quality video infrastructure and systems, enabling businesses to reduce total cost of ownership and allowing end users to participate in face-to-face meetings anytime, across any environment.

Making Visual Communications Easier, Faster, and More Cost-Effective to Deliver Enterprise-Wide

The solutions reduce the time and resources required to create and maintain an end-to-end UC and video collaboration environment. By leveraging open-standards to ensure interoperability, the solutions work with existing infrastructure, reduce complexity, and simplify migration of existing systems and endpoints to the new enterprise solution. The combined solutions simplify purchasing and provide a best-of-breed approach to deliver high-quality enterprise video collaboration. The HP FlexNetwork architecture creates a low latency, high-performing network optimized for video by combining with the Polycom ® RealPresence ® Platform with H.264 High Profile technology that uses up to 50 percent less bandwidth than competitive solutions. When coupled with Polycom ® Constant Clarity , with patented Polycom ® Lost Packet Recovery ® technologies to protect video and voice performance despite bandwidth disruptions, the solutions deliver a truly HD video experience despite fluctuations in bandwidth.

“Together with HP and Microsoft, Polycom is delivering interoperable solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts: they combine best-of-breed video collaboration capabilities and tested interoperability from three industry leaders to make it easier to deliver, scale, and manage all the disparate applications and components of unified communications,” said Sue Hayden, executive vice president, Strategic Alliances, Polycom. “We’re hearing from organizations around the world that video collaboration is a mission critical part of how they run their businesses. Whether it is speeding time-to-market for a manufacturing company, consulting with a specialist over telemedicine, or supporting distance learning, our compelling solutions are changing how people collaborate and work.”
