Stocks in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today unveiled enhancements to the Company’s video content management solutions, including a new cloud-delivered version of the Polycom® RealPresence® Media Manager and Polycom® RSS™ 4000 v8.5, which help organizations record, stream, manage and view live and on-demand video content quickly, easily and cost-effectively.

Manage Video Libraries through a Secure Cloud

A new cloud-delivered service option for Polycom® RealPresence® Media Manager is available through a monthly subscription with no up-front investment required in hardware, configuration or in-house IT services. The service can support a range of levels of usage from 1,000 to 12,000 users.

“We are delivering a cloud service that gives our customers flexible op-ex models, an alternative option to a traditional cap-ex model, for the Polycom RealPresence Media Manager. This service gets our customers up and running fast and with a nominal initial investment,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, President of Products and Services, Polycom. “Whether a customer is implementing a continuing education program for doctors or a knowledge-transfer program for factory workers, or streaming live events to various stakeholders, Polycom’s video content management solutions help organizations across industries distribute media more efficiently, making the entire organization smarter, more responsive, and more agile, all while keeping costs down.”

“Webcasting is one of the ways Lexus communicates to our dealers and to the public, and Polycom helps us do that,” said Sandy Blanchard, Relationship Marketing Manager at Lexus. “Tens of thousands of viewers watch our product launch events via live stream and thousands more access the file for replay. Polycom’s cloud-delivered video content management services, in particular, help us with cost savings since we don’t need to burden our in-house IT with supporting the high volume of video streams.”
