Polycom 2.0

Yesterday, Polycom made history...
We have made four industry-transforming announcements.
  1. New endpoints & New User Experience,
  2. Open SVC standard,
  3. New Portfolio of Mid-market Solutions,
  4. RealPresence Axis Suite.
I would like to spend more time on CloudAxis, whis is truely AWESOME...
CloudAxis Suite is a new product that extends enterprise- grade video collaboration to Skype, GoogleTalk, and business video apps through a browser: making B2B and B2C collaboration possible. That's important, because it enables organizations to collaboration outside their firewalls, easily with their Business Partners and Customers.

Via an universal browser access, without specific download, end-users will be able to join a collaboration session with you... That platform will be the first industry Global Presence Directory to agregate presence and adress list from Skype, GoogleTalk, Facebook, Microsoft Lync, IBM Sametime and other presence apps...

Now, let me share some screenshots to share with you the user experience.

Host can start a call and invite those contacts from the global directory.

Invitees receive link in Chat Window and launch their browsers.

Secure Multipoint Video Session

Participant View with Content Sharing.

To sum up, that new offering will allow you as Polycom customers to extend enterprise-grade video collaboration from rooms, theaters, desktops, tablets and smartphone to billions of users on any presence video app, any brower, any device...
