Polycom extends mobile options with RealPresence Mobile 1.3

AUTHOR: Inavate

Polycom has updated its RealPresence Mobile platform, releasing version 1.3 and expanding availability to the HTC One S, HTC One X, and HTC Jetstream tablet, along with the new Apple iPad.

RealPresence Mobile 1.3 also includes a camera control feature to remotely control the camera on the other end of a video meeting allowing users to zoom in, pan, or tilt the camera to get a better look at the subject or the environment.

This feature is important in vertical market applications such as healthcare, for more in-depth patient consultations; educational settings, for panning the classroom or zooming in on a speaker or presentation; and manufacturing plants, to closely examine the products on the factory floor.

Polycom also announced enhancements to its RealPresence Platform, the infrastructure that powers RealPresence Mobile, to boost scalability to support up to 10,000 devices simultaneously and make it easier for IT administrators to manage video collaboration networks.
