Polycom has revealed a host of new enhancements, including, additional features for its flagship Polycom Trio solution to cement its role as the centre of every meeting room experience, a secure guest access capability on Polycom Pano, and the extension of the company’s partnership with Zoom to launch Polycom Zoom Rooms.
Polycom Trio will work with Polycom’s video CODECs in addition to today’s VisualPlus, opening the door to videoconferencing capabilities previously reserved for larger rooms, such as the facial tracking feature found in Polycom EagleEye Director II and Polycom EagleEye Producer. Polycom Trio will also be able to offer an optimized room experience with dual monitor support, enhanced audio coverage with ceiling-mounted microphones, and improved HDMI connectivity. With no need for additional remote controls, Polycom Trio’s touch screen becomes the only interface needed to manage call volume, camera zoom, and more.
“Customers have higher expectations than ever before for meeting rooms—they want every meeting space to be a true collaboration center with simple voice, video, and content sharing,” says Mary McDowell, Polycom CEO. “Polycom continues to lead the way with Polycom Trio, making it the simplest way for our customers to connect, communicate, and be productive.”
Polycom has enhanced its partnership with Zoom to offer customers the best Zoom experience through the its premier Polycom Trio conference ‘smart phone’, and to support Zoom Rooms on Polycom’s leading audio and video solutions. The new Polycom Zoom Rooms solution is available in three packages, suitable for all business needs, from huddle spaces to large meeting rooms. As part of the package, users can operate the Polycom Trio, whilst running the Zoom controller UI natively, creating the full Zoom Rooms control experience.
“Customers have told us they want our premium Polycom in-room experience with the flexibility and simplicity of Zoom, so we’re excited to expand our partnership with Zoom into the Zoom Rooms space,”, said Laura Marx, Vice President, Global Alliance and Partner Marketing, Polycom. “Making our state-of-the-art Polycom Trio conference phone the center of the meeting room experience means customers enjoy an easy, consistent experience to create meaningful connections.”
“Partnering with Polycom on Zoom Rooms solutions reinforces Zoom’s commitment to create the best meeting experiences for our enterprise users. With Trio as the Zoom Rooms controller and audio source and Polycom cameras in the room, users benefit from our outstanding audio and video quality, ease of use, and reliability,” said Oded Gal, Head of Product Management for Zoom.
