Polycom introduces new business media phone

VVX 1500 combines voice and video conferencing into a single personal device

By CBR Staff Writer

Polycom, a provider of voice communications services, has introduced its first business media phone, the VVX 1500.

According to the company, VVX 1500 combines a personal video conferencing system with a fully featured VoIP telephone with Polycom HD Voice and an open application programming interface and micro-browser for real-time delivery of personalised web content as well as integration with key business applications. All of these features are integrated with a color touch-screen interface to enhance personal productivity, simplify multimedia communications, improve team collaboration and reduce travel costs.

Polycom claims that by combining voice and video into a single personal device with an intuitive touch-screen interface, the VVX 1500 simplifies communications while delivering a truly collaborative experience. With a large color LCD display and Polycom HD Voice technology, the VVX 1500 enables high-resolution, face-to-face collaboration without requiring travel, delivering a compelling return on investment.

According to Polycom, the VVX 1500 comes bundled with several applications including the Polycom Productivity Suite which enables users to initiate and control audio conference calls right from the device’s screen as well as record calls locally using a flash drive in the phone’s USB port.

The VVX 1500 also features a free web service called My Info Portal through which customers can select to receive content such as local weather reports and other personalised information on the screen when the device is not in a voice or video call, the company added.
