Polycom, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), announced today it is delivering Polycom® RealPresence® HD video collaboration solutions to power live face-to-face dialog between past laureates winners and the host of the event at The Tech Awards 2012 Gala in Santa Clara, Calif. on November 15, an annual event recognizing entrepreneurs who are using technology to benefit humanity. Polycom has been actively involved with The Tech Awards program since its inception in 2001, and 2012 marks the fifth consecutive year Polycom has served as the exclusive Global Communications Sponsor of the program.

Polycom’s video collaboration solutions, powered by the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform, will bring two past award laureates "on stage" via HD video to provide updates on their progress since winning the award. Laureates Abhishek Sinha, co-founder and CEO of Eko India Financial Services Private Limited, and Howard Weinstein, founder and CEO of Solar Ear (provider of solar-powered hearing aids to the hearing impaired in impoverished areas), will join the event from Polycom's New Delhi and Sao Paolo Executive Experience Centers, respectively, for a conversation with Master of Ceremonies Hari Sreenivasan, Correspondent, Director of Digital Partnerships for PBS Newshour, who will be in-person at The Tech Awards Gala. Polycom President and CEO Andy Miller will also address the Gala audience during the evening.

"We are honored to help bring Mr. Sinha and Mr. Weinstein to The Tech Awards Gala through the power of video conferencing," said Miller. "The visionaries and humanitarians being honored at The Tech Awards are proof that the true impact of innovation is realized when technology is creatively applied to solving some of the world’s greatest challenges. At Polycom, our vision is to help make video collaboration ubiquitous, enabling hundreds of millions of people to easily use video to communicate and collaborate from anywhere, on any device. Polycom innovations are eliminating the distance between people so that these laureates can have face-to-face dialog with the audience to share their experiences and successes."
