Polycom Powers TED2013 Conference With HD Video Collaboration

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced that TED, the global nonprofit organization known for "Ideas Worth Spreading," is using Polycom® RealPresence® video collaboration solutions at this week’s annual TED conference (February 25 – March 1) to connect its two principal locations – TED2013 in Long Beach and TEDActive2013 in Palm Springs, Calif. – via immersive HD video. This is the second straight year that TED is using Polycom video collaboration solutions during its premier conference.

The Polycom-powered HD video solution will enable TED to deliver a live, full conference simulcast in Palm Springs, as well as interactive conversations between the two conference sites – with TEDActive host Kelly Stoetzel and audience members in Palm Springs interacting ‘face-to-face’ with TED2013 curator and host Chris Anderson on the main stage in Long Beach during TED2013, "The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.” Polycom secure video collaboration solutions provide high-quality video (up to 1080p60 resolution), crystal clear audio, very low latency and robust reliability, delivering an experience that is as lifelike as being there in person, at a significantly lower price than other solutions.

"TED is at the forefront of sharing the most innovative and thought-provoking ideas around the world, and we are honored to once again help TED enhance the collaboration experience of their annual conference with secure Polycom HD video solutions,” said Andy Miller, president and CEO of Polycom. "The ideas exchanged at TED have the power to change the world, and Polycom has long embraced that spirit through the technologies we deliver. Polycom video collaboration solutions eliminate the barriers of distance, and have helped our customers to save lives with remote stroke diagnoses, educate students in some of the world’s most underserved communities, reduce the cost to deliver needed government services, and get to market faster with new products or life-saving drugs.”
