Polycom® RealPresence Debut™ provides customers a high quality, affordable, easy to deploy, easy to manage and easy to use solution for smaller meeting spaces to enable better collaboration
February 2, 2016, San Jose, CA – With traditional offices and meeting rooms being complimented by more open environments, increasingly businesses depend on “huddle rooms,” or smaller team spaces, for group collaboration. Millions of these small meeting environments have been constructed around the globe, but there is a lack of collaboration solutions that are reliable, intuitive and high-quality, and don’t require extensive IT support or installation expense. Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM) is solving that problem and bringing customers to the workplace of the future by announcing today that the Polycom® RealPresence Debut™ solution is now available in select markets worldwide.
“There is a great market opportunity in the collaboration industry that exists with huddle rooms,” said Ashan Willy, Senior Vice President, Product Management, Polycom. “With some 30 to 50 million huddle rooms today, there is a strong need for high quality collaboration solutions for smaller organizations that deliver the same impactful collaboration experiences as in larger organizations and larger conference rooms, but at a lighter weight from a cost, deployment and management point of view. The Polycom RealPresence Debut solution provides small and medium-sized businesses around the globe the capability to outfit these rooms with an exceptional collaboration experience at an affordable price.”
First introduced in October, the RealPresence Debut solution provides legendary Polycom audio, full motion HD video plus wired and wireless content sharing up to 1080p. The streamlined, all-in-one design incorporates Polycom’s audio innovations including Polycom® NoiseBlock™ technology, built-in pan, tilt and zoom camera, and an incredible ease of deployment for an experience that is unmatched at the price point.
“The RealPresence Debut provides a compelling combination of low-cost, quick and easy installation, and a solid user experience that makes it particularly well suited for large-scale deployments,” said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research. “For companies seeking to collaboration-enable their global workforce and huddle rooms, RealPresence Debut is worthy of serious consideration.”
The RealPresence Debut solution is perfect for smaller room and huddle spaces, as well as for small and medium-sized businesses with little or no IT resources available. The RealPresence Debut solution is cloud ready and can easily connect into the Polycom® RealPresence® Cloud offering to ensure organizations may purchase and deploy it easily and effectively.
