Do you already know our Poly solutions that make meetings work?

The workplace is changing at a blistering speed. We notice this every day when we need to meet easily and comprehensively with our colleagues, partners and customers. But which ingredients do you need to properly prepare a successful meeting? Our partner Poly can help you out.

This blog article will provide you an overview of the Poly (former Polycom & Plantronics) solutions that integrate natively with Microsoft Skype for Business & Teams and with Zoom Meetings.

The story of Poly(com)

Poly(com) and Microsoft have a 15-year relationship built on creating high-quality, voice  and video solutions that make meetings work. Poly devices and services for Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business are designed to be flexible, protecting our customers’ investments and enabling their teams to simply connect. The trusted partnership between Poly and Microsoft enables simple solutions tailored for any environment.

During the Skype for Business era, Poly started to deliver a complete ecosystem of voice and video solutions natively integrating with the Microsoft solutions. Poly(com) VVX IP deskphones, Trio IP conference phones and Group series video endpoints are acting completely as a native Skype for Business endpoint and even adopted the user interface of Skype for Business for delivering the best and most familiar experiences to your end-users.

Microsoft Teams was introduced new audio and video clients, which brought Poly into a slow start, but just like with Skype for Business Poly is delivering again a complete (and even bigger) ecosystem on Microsoft Teams voice and video solutions.

Today following Teams native solutions are already general available from Poly:

  • Poly Trio native Teams IP conference phones

     
  • Poly Studio USB camera speakerbar

     
  • Poly Elara mobile phone station

     
  • Poly RealConnect for Microsoft Teams, which is a Cloud Video Interop Service that connects any traditional VC system (Polycom Group/HDX, Cisco, Tandberg, Lifesize, …) to Microsoft Teams and/or Skype for Business online/server


​And the future looks even more bright, with some exciting new solutions to come during the next couple of months, including:

  • Poly CCX native Teams IP deskphones coming to market before end of 2019

     
  • Poly G7500, their brand new video conferencing solution, delivering 4K video and integrated content collaboration features, together with mixed connectivity of existing AV via HDCI and new AV devices via USB

    It’s expected that Poly G7500, which is running on Android OS, will integrate with Microsoft Teams in the future, allthough this is not official confirmed at this moment

Poly(com) solutions for Zoom

Poly and Zoom have teamed up to help you deliver the ultimate meeting experience. Zoom offers easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars that connect across Poly mobile, desktop, conference, video and software solutions.

Today, following key devices from the Poly portfolio are already running native integration with Zoom:

  • Poly Trio native Zoom Room controller and high quality audio device
  • Poly Studio USB camera speakerbar
  • Poy G7500, their brand new video conferencing solution, delivering 4K video and integrated content collaboration features, together with mixed connectivity of existing AV via HDCI and new AV devices via USB which can integrate with Zoom via the Zoom Conference Rolom Connector integration

    It’s expected that Poly G7500, which is running on Android OS, will also integrate natively with Zoom in the future, allthough this is not official confirmed at this moment.
