Polycom RealPresence Mobile

I missed this by a few days…oh well, been busy with ForCarol.com.

On October 11, 2011 Polycom announced the availability of “RealPresence” on Apple iPad2, Motorola Xoom, and Samsung GALAXY Tab, with the promise of more tablet support to follow.  It needs a CMA Gatekeeper (ah, gatekeepers live! 🙂 at your location…here is a cool video demo:

The entire Press Release is here, but, I will quote part of it (the most interesting part to me, as I finish up my research on Polycom to appear here next week):

“RealPresence Mobile is a significant step toward achieving our vision to make it possible for millions of people to use video collaboration as their preferred method of communicating – easily, reliably, and securely – no matter what network, carrier, protocol, application, or device they use,” said Andy Miller, president and CEO of Polycom. “I’ve met with a hundred customers the past few months, and nearly every executive I talk with is looking to embrace mobility and tablets to improve business productivity. Customers who have seen our mobile applications running on Apple, Motorola, and Samsung tablets are truly inspired by the possibilities Polycom is enabling by extending video collaboration beyond the traditional boundaries of the conference room and desktop.”

Now, whether in the field or on the road, in an airport lounge or working from home, or wherever business leads, customers can use a tablet to connect and collaborate face-to-face with colleagues, customers, partners, and suppliers. RealPresence Mobile allows customers to leverage Polycom’s UC infrastructure to harness the benefits of video collaboration, increase the industry’s highest ROI even further, and unleash the powerful network effect of HD video collaboration.”

Translation:  Video conferencing anytime, anyplace, anyone!    🙂

The world is a’changing.

Pretty soon even the buttoned up corporate executive types will be video conferencing via a tablet or cell phone.  Just think of the productivity gains!
