Polycom adds 360-degree, panoramic 1080p HD video solution

Polycom says its 360-degree, panoramic 1080p HD video collaboration solutions for Microsoft Lync 2013 can be plugged into a USB port on a laptop.

The enterprise-grade video and audio collaboration capabilities in an easy-to-use system also double as a SIP audio conference phone providing the industry’s best audio quality.

The Polycom CX5100 provides the same HD panoramic USB video experience for customers who don’t require standalone conference phone connectivity.

Moreover, the new Polycom CX5500 and CX5100 Unified Conference solutions are successors to the Polycom CX5000 HD Unified Conference Station.

The latest solution retains the around-the-table, 360-degree, panoramic experience and delivers more than twice the HD video image quality, double the frame rate for life-like motion handling, and Polycom’s HD Voice for the quality audio while adding a new interface and design and a privacy cap.

AE Natarajan, senior vice president, Worldwide Engineering, Polycom, said: “Our custom-built for Lync solutions such as the new panoramic video collaboration experience, and our portfolio of Lync interoperable offerings, enable Polycom and Microsoft to win business from organizations seeking UC&C solutions that empower people to collaborate however, wherever and whenever they want.”

Polycom recently said Cairn India has deployed Polycom RealPresence video collaboration solutions to enable connectivity with project sites, offshore oil rigs and customers overseas. India’s second largest crude oil producer is currently utilizing the HD audio and video technology to speed up decision-making process and improve team meeting experiences throughout the company.
