Polycom unveils new update for RealPresence Mobile app


Mar 08, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Polycom, Inc. has announced the availability of Polycom RealPresence Mobile 2.2, a software update for the app that lets customers extend video collaboration beyond the conference room to tablets and smartphones. The upgrade includes Polycom SmartPairing technology, content sharing, and SVC support for Android devices, as well as new support for the Apple iPad mini and Apple iPhone 5.



Polycom RealPresence Mobile 2.2 provides a video collaboration experience when users are on-the-go, traveling or working remotely. The upgrades for the software include: Polycom SmartPairing technology; lower TCO with 3X HD video capacity; content sharing from a tablet during a video conference.

Polycom offers support across more than a dozen devices including tablets and smartphones from Apple, Motorola, Samsung, and HTC, among others.


"When we unveiled RealPresence Mobile in October 2011, we knew we were at the beginning of a wave of use cases for mobile video. Since then, we've seen fast adoption of RealPresence Mobile among businesses, as well as vertical industries such as healthcare, education and financial services. When people travel for work, or are mobile, they still want a secure, HD-quality solution for connecting face-to-face with their colleagues, partners and customers," said A.E. Natarajan, Senior vice president of Worldwide Engineering, Polycom.

"As a result of the innovation of Polycom's engineering team, we're proud to offer the most interoperable, reliable and secure solution for video collaboration that supports BYOD in a mobile world and enables dispersed workers to get business done faster." "Polycom video conferencing has significantly changed the way we work by opening the lines of communication," said Simon Quintin, Director, Workplace Services, Smiths Group PLC.

"The ability to actually see someone directly makes the whole communication more personal and efficient, so the adoption of Polycom video has spread across the company quickly. Right now, about 250 of our employees are using the RealPresence Mobile app, and it's proving to be a great way for us to extend video collaboration beyond the office to virtually anywhere." Polycom RealPresence Mobile, when powered by the Polycom RealPresence Platform, lets mobile device users search corporate directories, share content, and traverse secure firewalls, the company said.

The RealPresence Mobile 2.2 software application for smartphones and tablets is available as a free download from the Apple AppStore and from Google Play. Support for Polycom SmartPairing is available for the iPad mini, iPad 2, iPad with Retina display and Android OS-based tablets, and connects with Polycom HDX systems running software version 3.2 as well as Polycom Group Series systems running software version 4.0.2. All components of the Polycom RealPresence Platform are available through Polycom's certified channel partners, the company added.
