Polycom Expands Microsoft Lync-Enabled Portfolio

Polycom, Inc has announced a new dedicated room system for Microsoft Lync 2013, a multi-way content sharing application, additional interoperable solutions, and customer momentum in support of Microsoft’s inaugural Lync Conference held in San Diego, California. Polycom’s portfolio of 40 video, voice, and content sharing solutions are interoperable or optimised to work with Microsoft Lync, driving a majority of customers to choose Polycom and Microsoft over other vendors for a complete UC&C solution.

 

Together, Polycom RealPresence video and voice solutions and Microsoft Lync unify communications across work environments – on the go, home and work offices, conference rooms, and immersive theatres. With the combination of Lync and RealPresence solutions, employees can launch video collaboration sessions easily and intuitively from within familiar interfaces and normal workflows, from any work environment on- or off-premises. They simply click a name in their Lync contact list to securely collaborate face-to-face via Polycom video at their desktop or in a conference room.

 

“We have long worked with Microsoft to ensure our solutions are interoperable and we’re excited to do so again with Lync 2013. Today our mutual customers are benefitting from the ability to eliminate the barrier of geographic distance between employees. The combination of Polycom and Microsoft software gives employees greater flexibility and a seamless UC solution for video, voice, conferencing and collaboration, from anywhere, anytime. And with our new dedicated room system purpose-built for Lync 2013, it’s only going to get better and drive more value for our mutual customers,” said Ted Colton, Global Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Polycom.

 

All Lync 2010-interoperable Polycom video and voice solutions and the RealPresence Content Sharing Suite are available now.  Polycom intends to deliver the new Lync room system in 2H 2013.
