Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), announced today it is delivering Polycom® RealPresence® video collaboration solutions to enable a live face-to-face dialog at The Tech Awards Gala 2013. During the event, 2012 laureate winner and co-founder and CEO of TeachAIDS, Dr. Piya Sorcar, will participate from Hyderabad, India, and speak with Shuman Ghosemajumder, co-founder and chairman of TeachAIDS, who will join from the Gala stage in Santa Clara, Calif. The annual event, a signature event of The Tech Museum of Innovation, takes place on November 14, and recognizes entrepreneurs around the world who use technology to benefit humanity. Polycom has been actively involved with The Tech Awards program since its inception in 2001, and 2013 marks the sixth consecutive year Polycom has served as the exclusive global communications sponsor of the program.

Dr. Sorcar will be joined by Indian movie star and TeachAIDS ambassador Anushka Shetty, with both participating from Polycom’s Hyderabad Executive Experience Center to provide an update on the TeachAIDS program to the audience members in Santa Clara. TeachAIDS provides HIV education with unprecedented efficacy to more than 200 organizations and governments in 73 countries, educating millions around the world, including breakthrough implementations in regions which had banned sex education.

Polycom Executive Vice President and CMO Jim Kruger will also address the Gala audience during the evening. "We are honored to once again support The Tech Awards, and to defy distance barriers by bringing Dr. Piya Sorcar and Anushka Shetty to the event through the power of video collaboration," said Kruger. "Dr. Sorcar, Shuman Ghosemajumder, and the many visionaries and humanitarians being honored at The Tech Awards demonstrate how applying innovation in the right ways can have measurable impacts in solving some of the world’s greatest challenges.”
