by CXOtoday News Desk    Aug 12, 2014


Polycom has launched two new video-enabled solutions, designed specifically for use in the enterprise and education sectors in India. Named Polycom RealPresence Utility Cart 500 and the Polycom RealPresence EduCart 500, these packaged solutions from Polycom are standalone units, which allow users to bring high definition room-based video conferencing and content sharing to a variety of locations beyond a dedicated conference room. In addition, the carts can be customized with peripherals such as HD document cameras or projectors, for use in detailed inspections and presentations.

“More organizations and industries now demand to use video collaboration outside the conference room, and have it embedded into their operational and business processes,” said Tony Sandberg, director, industry solutions and market development, Polycom Asia Pacific. “Technology solutions such as the Polycom Utility Cart 500 and EduCart 500, enable people to visually interact from a variety of locations, be it a factory floor, a project site, or a lecture theatre.”

The RealPresence Utility Cart 500 features Polycom’s RealPresence Group 500 series video system and Polycom EagleEye IV cameras. The solution allows the video and audio system to be easily moved from location to location.

Among the cart’s standard features are a single 27-inch or dual 22-inch 1080p full HD LED backlit monitors, mounting points for wireless access, and an access panel that includes two USB ports, HDMI, VGA and audio from codec, for multiple peripheral connectivity. The battery module gives up to five hours of operation, and is available in 110 or 230 volt AC versions. For easy maneuverability and durability, the Utility Cart 500 also comes fitted with sturdy stainless steel handles, and five casters for enhanced stability.

Designed specifically for classrooms and training departments, the RealPresence EduCart 500 is a videoconferencing solution for use in education environments. This includes distance learning, teacher conferences, virtual field trips, and enhanced individual and group learning with remote experts.
