Effective, engaging collaboration that leverages video conferencing should incorporate features like content sharing, clear participant rosters, easy call management controls and Instant Messaging. But, according to Microsoft research, some 97 percent of meeting rooms arenít adequately equipped to handle video.
In fact, a majority of these rooms host the most rudimentary of collaboration solutions like a digital projector and an audio connection for conference calls. And, while most of these enterprises are adopting Skype for Business for end-users, the reality is that many of their conference rooms lack the ability to connect to Skype for Business calls, which eliminates effective collaboration tools like video and content sharing.
Polycom has partnered with Microsoft to create a seamless Skype for Business meeting experience across any device, bringing the Skype audio and video collaboration experience into every conference room.
By engineering products together, Polycom and Microsoft are able to deliver a comprehensive range of video conferencing solutions that combines the flexible and easily accessible Skype for Business user interface with Polycomís voice and video endpoints.
Microsoft and Polycom share a common goal: to deliver a rich collaboration experience across the full spectrum of meeting spaces. Together, they will set a new standard for integrated collaboration in any meeting room.
