Polycom has announced the worldwide availability of a software update for an app that lets customers extend video collaboration to tablets and smartphones.
The update, Polycom RealPresence Mobile 2.2, includes Polycom SmartPairing technology, content sharing, and SVC support for Android devices and new support for the iPad mini and iPhone 5. The app provides a video collaboration experience when users are on-the-go, traveling or working remotely.
Software upgrades also include lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with 3X HD video capacity and the ability to share content from a tablet during a video conference.
“When we unveiled RealPresence Mobile in October 2011, we knew we were at the beginning of a wave of use cases for mobile video. Since then, we’ve seen fast adoption of RealPresence Mobile among businesses, as well as vertical industries such as health care, education and financial services. When people travel for work, or are mobile, they still want a secure, HD-quality solution for connecting face-to-face with their colleagues, partners and customers," said A.E. Natarajan, senior vice president of worldwide engineering, Polycom.
Polycom is demonstrating Polycom RealPresence Mobile at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The app is also available as a free download from the Apple App Store and from Google Play.
