Polycom moving into digital signage

Polycom, Inc., a provider of telepresence, video and voice communication solutions, has announced the release of what it calls “the first, comprehensive, standards-based solution combining real-time visual communication, live and on-demand video streaming, digital signage and network-efficient video content distribution, designed to help organizations tackle the inherent communication and collaboration challenges of managing a distributed and mobile workforce and operating globally.”

Enabling this solution is a new, scalable video content platform that allows organizations to cost-effectively create and efficiently distribute live and on-demand video content and digital signage, according to a company release.

This new solution complements Polycom’s extant telepresence, video conferencing and desktop video collaboration solutions to give customers additional capabilities for video-enabling their organizations. It also allows customers to enhance unified communication networks from Polycom Open Collaboration Network partners to support critical enterprise collaboration needs, such as corporate communication, training, distance learning, project communications, customer events, and sales and marketing communications.

The new solution includes the new integrated Polycom digital signage, which allows distribution and management of broadcast-quality multimedia content to targeted groups with minimal network impact, according to the company.

“One of the greatest challenges that organizations face today is ensuring effective communication and collaboration among geographically dispersed teams, customers, partners and vendors,” said Andy Miller, executive vice president of Polycom. “Success or failure often comes down to the ability to execute with speed and precision across distances. Polycom is helping customers address these fundamental challenges by enabling them to fully leverage the power of video communication and collaboration across all aspects of their business and from within their core unified communications environment.”
