New Poly device combines content sharing and video conferencing

02 Jul 2019

Plantronics (known as ‘Poly’) is releasing a new video device that combines content collaboration and video conferencing capabilities in one. 

The G7500 integrates advanced audio features, wireless content sharing and ultra HD 4K video, creating an immersive audio and video experience for mid- to large-sized conference rooms.

"Not only are we spending more time in meetings than just a few years ago, we're collaborating in different ways than before with the rise of remote workers, open office floor plans and increasingly global workforces," says Poly global solutions marketing senior director Chris Thorson. 

"All of these factors are generating demand for video conferencing solutions that make meetings more productive and are as real as face-to-face. Poly developed G7500 with these factors in mind -- simplicity, clarity and limitless possibility. Your focus stays on the meeting, while our technology steps quietly into the background."

The G7500 places 4K content and collaboration at the centre of the experience with a customisable interface for both touch and non-touch displays as well as secure and guest network capabilities for all connected devices. 

It also features infinite whiteboarding, where users can write over content, use the screen as a whiteboard space, and capture for later use. 

By combining video conferencing and content sharing in one solution, attendees can share content from any device to make meetings more productive.

The device also helps teams share ideas and express themselves clearly with rich visuals and detailed audio - 4K video promises four times the quality in video calls. 

Poly-exclusive innovations such as NoiseBlock and Acoustic Fence ensure minimal audio distractions such as background noise and side conversations while stereo audio provides an in-room experience at a distance.

The G7500 incorporates an interface that is intuitive and easy to navigate, and a deployment-friendly architecture makes it simple and cost-effective to install. 

It is intended for users including but not limited to business leaders, IT and facilities managers, AV specialists and healthcare professionals.

Support for industry standards gives means it can connect to any cloud-based video platform or ecosystem (such as Zoom, Cisco Webex, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business) through Polycom's RealConnect Service.

"The global video conferencing market is booming. It was valued at $6.43 Billion in 2016 and is anticipated to reach $13.42 Billion by 2023", explains Frost & Sullivan's connected work practice industry director Roopam Jain. 

"Enterprises around the world are rapidly investing in video conferencing tools that improve collaboration and productivity for today's digital workers. With the release of G7500, Poly is bringing its expertise in high-quality video, audio and content collaboration to offer a secure and flexible next-generation solution for medium and large conference rooms at a compelling price."
