Polycom unveils 360° collaboration solution

AUTHOR: Inavate

Polycom has unveiled the industry’s first 360°, panoramic 1080p HD video collaboration solutions custom-built for Microsoft Lync 2013.

The Unified Conference Stations are designed to deliver an around-the-table experience for all participants, whether they’re in the room or thousands of miles away.

The CX5500 delivers video and audio collaboration capabilities in a system that can be plugged into a USB port on a laptop, and also doubles as an SIP audio conference phone. The CX5100 provides the same HD panoramic USB video experience for customers who don’t require standalone conference phone connectivity.

A successor to the CX5000 HD, it delivers more than twice the HD image quality, double the frame rate and adds a new interface, design and a privacy cap.
