Polycom has announced Polycom RealPresence Mobile 3.0 and Polycom RealPresence Desktop 3.0, video collaboration software applications for mobile devices and personal computers. The new versions include enhanced content-sharing capabilities and support across more devices from companies including Apple, LG, Samsung and Sony. RealPresence Mobile 3.0 and RealPresence Desktop 3.0 video collaboration software are powered by thePolycom RealPresence Platform, the most interoperable, secure and comprehensive software infrastructure for universal video collaboration. These solutions, along with Polycom’s full portfolio of next-generation video collaboration solutions, are on display this week at InfoComm13 in Orlando, Florida.
Organsations expect a great collaboration experience, whether they’re at headquarters, at home, with a customer or on the road – or for that matter in a school, a hospital, a court room, or a manufacturing plant,” said A.E. Natarajan, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Engineering, Polycom. “Polycom is focused on delivering solutions that make it incredibly easy for anyone to collaborate via video regardless of device or environment. Today’s enhancements to our mobile and desktop software solutions represent another step forward to drive our vision to make video collaboration ubiquitous, enabling more organizations and users to reap the benefits of face-to-face collaboration.”
For Polycom customer Lincoln Fire and Rescue in Lincoln, Neb., for example, video collaboration technology allows the organization to ensure a consistent knowledge-transfer training process for its workforce, which is completely independent of where they are physically located (see the related video and case study).
“Here at Lincoln Fire and Rescue, we were struggling to train our firefighters and emergency medical services personnel while still keeping them available to respond to emergencies in the community,” said Leo Benes, Battalion Chief with Lincoln Fire and Rescue. “With room, mobile and desktop video conferencing, we’re able to reach all 85 of our employees at one time while they’re still in their station houses. Whether on our daily morning call, in training sessions, or using real-time mobile video at the scene to respond to a large-scale disaster, we can show everyone what we’re talking about by pushing maps, photos, video – whatever they need – to understand the situation better. As a result, we respond to emergencies faster, and we’re better prepared when we do.”
Polycom also announced today that Polycom RealPresence CloudAXIS Suite – a software extension to the Polycom RealPresence Platform that delivers secure, enterprise-grade video collaboration to anyone with a web browser – has achieved VMware Ready™ status. By using Polycom RealPresence CloudAXIS Suite with VMware vSphere 5, enterprises can now deploy video collaboration in a virtualized VMware environment (see the related press release). The VMware certification will help customers further scale their video collaboration infrastructure, reduce TCO, and optimize performance.
