SAN JOSE, CA - Nov 10, 2015: 
The workplace is changing. Traditional offices and meeting rooms are giving way to open, team and mobile spaces as well as small/huddle rooms, all of which present challenges for effective collaboration. Successfully delivering on the goal to unleash the power of human collaboration, Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM) announced today that the Polycom® RealPresence Trio™, the first smart hub that transforms the iconic three-point phone into a powerful voice, content and video collaboration solution, is now available for shipping in select countries around the globe.

Polycom® RealPresence TrioTM, the first smart hub for group collaboration that transforms the company’s iconic three-point conference phone into a powerful voice, content-sharing and video system, is now available in select countries.

“Polycom is making its vision to unleash the power of human collaboration a reality,” said Michael Frendo, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Engineering. “Polycom RealPresence Trio transforms collaboration in any sized room with a powerful audio, video and content sharing experience that is extremely easy to use and deploy.”

The RealPresence Trio solution, which leverages Polycom technologies, including the Polycom® NoiseBlock™ audio technology that eliminates extraneous noises, as well as HD content sharing and video, is already available and shipping in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and the United States. The RealPresence Trio smart hub will be available in other global regions starting in December.

“With the introduction of RealPresence Trio, Polycom has delivered a next-generation collaboration solution suited for a wide range of deployment environments, especially those that aren’t already video-enabled,” said Stephanie Watson, General Manager, MZA Limited.

The RealPresence Trio smart hub is not only easy to use, but also easy to set up and the technology has broad interoperability and deep integration across multiple UC platforms including Skype for Business (coming in December), Microsoft Lync, Genband and BroadSoft. The high-quality voice of the RealPresence Trio solution has also been certified by Cisco Systems, Inc as being compatible with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager v10.5.

"The Polycom Trio is a comprehensive and well thought out product. It is simple to use, integrates nicely in our Microsoft Lync environment and will provide our teams with an exceptional experience delivering more effective meetings,” said Romain Penet, Head of Unified Collaborations, EDF one of the UK’s largest energy companies and the largest producer of low-carbon electricity.
