Polycom Introduce Entry Level Telepresence

Polycom has introduced their new entry-level Polycom HDX 6000 room telepresence system with a starting price of £4,299. The full-featured Polycom HDX 6000 delivers Polycom’s UltimateHD experience with high-definition (HD) video, voice and content sharing capabilities that enable effective face-to-face collaboration among geographically dispersed workgroups to help organisations improve efficiency and reduce costs by replacing travel.

“From improving collaboration to significantly reducing operating costs, Polycom telepresence solutions positively impact customer environments,” said Joe Sigrist, senior vice president and general manager of video solutions at Polycom. “The new Polycom HDX 6000 is a full-featured HD system at a price that can be quickly cost justified through the elimination of just a few business trips. Polycom continues to expand our performance-leading systems by providing more options for broad deployments and for smaller organisations looking to leverage the benefits of telepresence.”

“Nemertes Research continues to see growing interest in video conferencing to reduce travel and improve the ability of distributed workers to effectively collaborate,” said Irwin Lazar, vice president communications research, Nemertes Research. “Forty-eight percent of research participants now have policies to promote the use of video conferencing.”
