A new interpretation of the well-known, three-legged classic, the Polycom Trio 8500 is designed to make the most of mid-sized conference rooms
When it comes to conferencing technology, a common misconception is that you have to go big in order to achieve high-quality results, with ‘expensive’, ‘large rooms’ and ‘complex’ often being amongst the first concerns for many.
For more than 25 years, Polycom has been out to prove that excellent enterprise communication solutions can easily be integrated with small and medium-sized conference rooms. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its very first conference phone, the company has recently launched the Polycom Trio 8500: a new interpretation of the classic, star-shaped Trio.
A minimum of size with a maximum of features
Instantly recognisable due to the well-known, three-legged shape, the Polycom Trio 8500 is designed for mid-sized conference rooms and allows you to utilise every square metre available – without, as the firm suggests, having to compromise on the level of quality or features required. The Polycom Trio 8500 includes all of Polycom’s latest innovations, such as HD Voice audio quality, Polycom NoiseBlock and multi-line registration. Polycom has also confirmed that the Trio 8500 will also soon include a number of video and content sharing options, to – as it puts – further facilitate business communication.
Cooperation and collaboration
The small power house includes a full-colour touch screen interface and allows for Microsoft Exchange calendar integration, meaning that meetings can be joined with only one touch. To enable collaboration across platforms, it furthermore supports multi-line registration, allowing businesses to migrate between open SIP environment and/or Skype for Business environments, and works with other cloud-based audio and video platforms, including Zoom, BlueJeans, Cisco, Avaya and others.
