Polycom announces innovations for workplace collaboration

AUTHOR: Inavate

Polycom has announced a portfolio of video, voice and content collaboration solutions intended to help workplace connectivity.

The Polycom EagleEye Producer advances facial recognition technology that dynamically finds those involved in a discussion and frames them for clear view. When used with Polycom RealPresence Group Series solutions and Polycom RealPresence Resource Manager software, it reports data such as the number of participants at the start of the meeting, the end and the total time each attended.

Polycom NoiseBlock technology eliminates extraneous noises such as paper shuffling, crinkling food wrappers and keyboard typing from interrupting conversations.

For users on the go, Polycom Acoustic Bubble technology, available in Polycom RealPresence Desktop video collaboration software, automatically removes unwanted noise from a call, including background conversations, city street noise or other peripheral sounds, without the end user having to hover over the mute button.

Peter Leav, Polycom president and CEO, said: “Polycom is focused on leading our customers’ success by creating solutions to help them build a collaborative experience that is both natural and easy to use.The innovations we unveiled today are a direct reflection of that commitment and our vision to unleash the power of human collaboration.”

The Polycom solutions mentioned above are available and shipping now with the exception of Polycom EagleEye Producer and Polycom RealPresence Video App Software Development Kit (SDK), which are expected to be available at the end of the month and quarter, respectively.
