Delivers quality collaboration experiences to end-users from any location
Unified communications (UC) company Polycom has signed an agreement with Lenovo to deliver Polycom RealPresence HD video and HD Voice offerings on Lenovo laptops and tablets.
Under the agreement, the two companies will develop offerings that optimise and embed Polycom RealPresence video collaboration offerings on Lenovo laptops and tablets to deliver quality collaboration experiences to end-users from any location.
In addition, the companies are planning to deliver Polycom-powered offerings that embed select Lenovo desktops, laptops, and tablets with Polycom RealPresence HD video and HD Voice collaboration software.
Primarily, Lenovo will offer select ThinkPad tablets and laptops that are certified Polycom-ready, specifically for Polycom RealPresence Mobile and Polycom RealPresence Desktop software.
With a simple click of a mouse, RealPresence Desktop makes it easy for companies to drive video collaboration and content sharing via video more broadly throughout the organisation and also across firewalls in B2B and mobile videoconferences.
RealPresence Mobile is an enterprise offering for tablets that extends HD video collaboration beyond traditional office boundaries with the same security and experience Polycom customers expect in a conference room. Polycom’s mobile video collaboration solutions are powered by the Polycom RealPresence Platform.
Polycom chief development officer Sudhakar Ramakrishna said working with Lenovo further accelerates Polycom’s vision to make video collaboration ubiquitous by expanding the reach of Polycom RealPresence HD video and HD Voice, powered by the RealPresence Platform, to an even broader range of devices, from desktops to laptops to tablets.
"Embedded delivery of Polycom video collaboration software on industry leading devices, such as Lenovo, adds a new and critical route to market for Polycom. This collaboration underscores Polycom’s focus and commitment to deliver the most advanced and innovative unified communications and video solutions to enable employees to collaborate with colleagues, customers, experts, and partners from wherever they work or travel," said Ramakrishna.
