Polycom, Leading Global Service Providers Form Consortium to Further Accelerate Video Telepresence and Make it Easy for Millions to Communicate via Video

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), a global leader in unified communications (UC), today announced it has teamed with leading service providers from around the world to unleash broader visual communications adoption by enabling interoperability and global business-to-business (B2B) connectivity for telepresence and video conferencing.

The broadest visual communications exchange of its kind, the new Open Visual Communications Consortium™ (OVCC™) organisation will provide high-quality connectivity across service provider networks, making it easy for businesses, governments, universities, healthcare institutions, and other organisations using telepresence and video conferencing to connect with each other whenever they want without networking headaches. OVCC will be the first to establish a global standards-based, multi-vendor, multi-network visual communication exchange. Unlike proprietary exchanges, OVCC members plan to support the full spectrum of video systems from immersive telepresence and room-based systems, high definition and standard definition, followed by desktop clients and mobile devices.

Polycom CEO Andy Miller discussed the OVCC during a live webcast yesterday at 11 p.m. SGT (SG).
