Video Conferences with Polycom

Polycom –
the optimal conference hardware for Lync

Effectively managing video conferences is the biggest challenge facing an IT department. Reducing the number of calls involving video support or the need for "White Glove" services for video applications are also problematic. Are the users of your video conference room distracted by problems with video or audio quality? Can they see and hear the speaker clearly? Do you have to swing the camera round to draw attention to the current speaker? Are the users frustrated by having to use yet another new interface? Solve these problems and you will see: the video conference suite will be used again more frequently. If the suite is better utilized you will be fully exploiting the benefits of video collaboration and achieve the original investment objective. For users of Microsoft ® Lync, the Polycom ® with the CX5100 Unified Conference Station, with its truly unique video solution incorporating a 360° panoramic view, is the solution to these challenges.
