Polycom Renew Their Most Iconic Teleconferencing Solution

Twenty-five years ago, Polycom introduced its iconic three-legged conference phone and changed the rules of how the world communicates at work. Today, Polycom is once again setting the standard for conference phone excellence, introducing new and updated conferencing solutions that meet business needs within rooms of all sizes. 

“In today’s connected world, high quality audio conferencing that bridges the communication gab between geographically dispersed workforces, regardless of location or device is fundamental to the future of work,” says Tony Simonsen, Managing Director, Polycom Australia and New Zealand, Japan and Korea.

“For a quarter century, businesses have known to look for Polycom’s visually distinctive phones and have counted on them to provide superior and unparalleled call quality.”  

The Polycom Trio 8500 is instantly recognisable as a sharp new interpretation of the well-known three-legged shape and is the perfect communication tool for mid-sized conference rooms. The Trio 8500 delivers HD voice audio quality, Polycom NoiseBlock and multi-line registration, and will be expandable to include video and content sharing in the future. It also includes a full colour touch screen interface and Microsoft Exchange calendar integration, which makes joining a meeting as easy as one touch.  

“Australia is a major conference phone region for Polycom and we expect the Trio 8500 to be well received by both channel partners and customers. It’s been designed for the 21st century workplace with a modern look and crystal-clear audio quality and designed for the best interoperability across ecosystems, another signature Polycom feature,“ says Simonsen.  

Polycom has also added new features to the Polycom Trio 8800, which now allows participants to pair personal devices to share local content over Apple Airplay or Miracast certified devices.  

Polycom Trio 8500 will be available from the 19th of September, with video and content sharing support added later in the year.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
