Polycom accelerates unified communications innovation

Develops H.264 Scalable Video Coding technology for current and future solutions

By CBR Staff Writer

Polycom unveiled plans to accelerate delivery of offerings for UC networks through new applications in emerging UC markets – mobile, small and medium business (SMB), and consumer.

The company announced that it was extending its enterprise UC product portfolio by developing standards-based H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) technology for current and future solutions and UC initiatives.

Its SVC technology will be made available at no cost to strategic partners that support open and interoperable communications standards through industry forums such as the Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCIF).

SVC technology delivers video and audio experiences at any bandwidth and over networks prone to packet loss and congestion.

The firm said that its end-to-end SVC offerings will encompass client and intelligent core elements and interoperate with existing deployments.

The company announced it will extend its UC Intelligent Core infrastructure platform by delivering "universal bridging" capabilities to connect existing and emerging video applications, to help customers protect telepresence and video conferencing investments as new applications emerge.
