Polycom Group Series

Combining great video experiences and a new breakthrough simple interface with the broadest interoperability and lowest total cost of ownership of any video collaboration system. The Group Series sets a new standard for ease of use in video collaboration.

The breakthrough user experience is easy for even first time users, with no need for training. Backed by years of customer research, Polycom’s new user interface speeds up the adoption of video communications, and reduces support costs for IT administrators. Plus, breakthrough Polycom SmartPairing™ technology makes it simple to use your own Apple iPad tablet to start and manage video calls.

With the Group Series, Polycom sets a higher bar for video and audio performance. Seeing your participants in 1080p60 (full High Definition at 60 frames per second) brings video to a new level of realism. Content sharing at up to 1080p60, plus full motion HD people at the same time, helps to eliminate compromises when sharing across distances. During video calls, how well you can hear is as important as how well you can see. Polycom Constant Clarity™ is a set of industry-leading audio technology that dramatically improves the sense of realism, resulting in more productive meetings.

The Group Series offers the broadest interoperability of any video collaboration solution. Being fully standards-based, you can call millions of other standards-based video systems in use today. Native interoperability with leading unified communications (UC) platforms, without expensive and complex gateways, extends the benefits of your UC platform investment while simplifying the experience for users. In addition, Polycom’s unique interoperable SVC architecture is the first to provide video calling between both existing video systems and new SVC solutions.

With the Polycom Group Series, we continue to lower your total cost of ownership of video collaboration. The benefits of H.264 High Profile technology now extend to 1080p60 experiences for whole new levels of realism at up to 50 percent less bandwidth. For existing Polycom customers, the Group Series allows you to continue to use previous investments in Polycom technology, including select cameras, microphones, and UC innovations such as Polycom EagleEye Director and Polycom Touch Control.
