Designed at the company’s research and development (R&D) facility in India, this unique solution provides companies with the option to implement affordable, high quality video collaboration in smaller conference rooms and meeting areas.
The solution is flexible and works together with the Polycom RealPresence Group 500 series for easy deployment based on the unique needs of the room environment.
With integrated features like Polycom SmartPairing, users can instantly share and annotate content via their devices, the web and cloud storage. The solution also comes equipped with additional features such as Polycom VisualBoard technology for virtual whiteboarding as well as NoiseBlock and Acoustic Fence to remove distracting extraneous sounds, ensuring group collaborations are impactful and productive.
Video collaboration is ‘mission-critical’ for Indian businesses, said Gabrielle Cichero, Senior Director, Marketing for Polycom Asia Pacific and Japan.
“We have seen adoption of video collaboration by Indian organisations increasing each year. This is driven by India’s economic strength as a knowledge economy and by the need to connect with the global market. Video collaboration is a mission-critical business tool for many of our Indian customers and adoption is only going to increase as more users get access through affordable, easy-to-use solutions like RealPresence Medialign 55 Express,” said Cichero at the RealPresence Medialign 55 Express launch.
Polycom has been growing progressively in the Indian video conferencing market and was named ‘Video Conferencing Equipment Vendor of the Year’ at the 2016 Frost & Sullivan India ICT Awards.
Cichero added that the Indian government’s initiatives such as ‘Digital India’, ‘Skill India’ and its emphasis on e governance has opened up tremendous opportunities for increased investment in technology and collaboration.
“Video collaboration effects real and impactful change across organisations and industries, from creating a culture of teamwork and establishing a smarter workplace, to building a stronger brand and ramping up client services, our customers in India and globally are showcasing the benefits of strong connections across distances,” she said.
