June 15, 2018 Ingram Micro

When it comes to videoconferencing, Polycom HDX has dominated the industry as the top solution for companies. However, recent technological innovations have made it so that HDX users can migrate to the new, state-of-the-art, RealPresence Group Series.

The latest in the realm of enriched videoconference technology, RealPresence Group Series is brimming with feature enhancements that are sure to make a positive impact your business.

Here are the top 10 reasons to upgrade from Polycom HDX to RealPresence Group Series:

  1. Certified with your Favourite Programs

Group Series is certified with both Skype for Business and Office 365 so that you can integrate our tech with your programs. You can also send and receive Skype for Business content at the click of a button, or take advantage of the Skype interface on RealPresence Touch.

No need to stress about the set-up process because it’s been streamlined with direct online registration to Office 365 and Skype for Business.

  1. Zoom and Blue Jeans Certified

Meetings take up valuable time so don’t settle for a subpar meeting experience! With simple one-touch dialing and enterprise calendar integration, you can take advantage of the best meeting room experience for cloud video services in the world.

  1. Powerful Clarity

With Group Series, excellent interactive content is the highest priority. With full 1080p HD, up to 60 fps for superrealism, single cable HDMI for video, audio, and key applications – in media & entertainment, creative design, architecture, health care, and education – you’ll spend hours simply absorbing all that the product has to offer.

  1. User-Friendly

Love new technology but not as keen on the learning curve that comes with it? From our integrated calendar with one-touch dialing, to wired and wireless content connections, simple and intuitive UI, layout diagrams and camera-preset thumbnails for easy customization, to tabletop control, to even our easy to operate remote, Group Series takes the headache makes the experience an intuitive one.

  1. No Distractions

Our NoiseBlock technology prevents any distracting background sounds –keyboard typing, footsteps, paper rustling – from disrupting your meeting. If you want to conference or use video in open workspaces then Acoustic Fence has you covered by preventing noises and voices from outside the fence.

  1. Camera Framing Support

Group Series offers automatic camera framing options that select the best camera positions throughout your conversations, changing as people come and go to ensure that everyone is consistently seen in the best possible view.

  1. ROI Assessment

Our system counts the exact number of users in each group video call to help measure the utilization of your conference rooms and ROI. While EagleEye Director II and EagleEye Producer do the counting, it’s recorded in Real Presence Clariti.

  1. Freedom to Call Anywhere

The Group Series mobile and small form factor technology allows you to take your video calls from anywhere you’d like. No need to be limited by the constraints of old technology! Feel free to move around and stay connected, from mobile carts to the manufacturing floor.

  1. Take Video to the Huddle Room

Smaller rooms don’t need to seem even smaller by being full of unnecessary clutter. Clear them out by switching over to our compact designs that are easy to deploy like the Group Convene package that’ll have you set up instantly.

  1. Advanced Features

With the latest generation, you’ll receive access to hundreds of new features, designs, and form factors that expand video into new use cases in a cost-effective manner. Group Series also offers a much longer runway for software patches and bug fixes.
