Stocks in this article: PLCM

PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced it is bringing cloud-delivered UC video services to its hosted PBX customers. The service will use plug-and-play desktop voice and video solutions from Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C).

MegaPath announced its planned availability and support of high-definition (HD) point-to-point video services for its hosted PBX customers using solutions built around high-performance Polycom® VVX® Business Media Phones and the Polycom® VVX® Camera, which offers plug-and-play installation to instantly transform Polycom® VVX® 500 and Polycom® VVX® 600 Business Media Phones into cost-effective, high-resolution video collaboration environments. Users install the 720p HD video camera simply by plugging it into the integrated USB port at the top of the phone, and no software drivers are required, which means they can join a video conference in a matter of seconds. The service works over existing VoIP networks, so deployment is easy and cost-effective. In addition to the Polycom VVX 500 and Polycom VVX 600, MegaPath currently supports face-to-face video collaboration using the Polycom® VVX® 1500 Business Media Phone. With these video-enabled Polycom phones, MegaPath's customers have access to intuitive, expandable, business-class phones that improve productivity and simplify business workflows through a unified communications experience.

For MegaPath customers, the Polycom VVX 500 and Polycom VVX 600 Business Media Phones offer convenient and cost-effective ways to deploy face-to-face collaboration throughout the workplace. The enterprise-quality phones feature gesture-based, multi-touch capable, capacitive touchscreens and an intuitive user interface that delivers the familiar tap-and-swipe usability of smartphones and tablets to the desktop. Video features include a privacy shutter, adjustable tilt, multiple video screen modes, side-by-side and PIP (picture-in-picture) window modes, and adjustable frame rates.
