The NEW Polycom SoundStation Duo available Mid November

The new SoundStation Duo from Polycom not only shows a move away from Polycom recent strategy of high end functions, but it also marks their first multiplatform solution. With Polycom strength in the market and it’s large brand awareness, the Polycom SoundStation Duo should prove a large thorn in the side of the rest of the market who have benefited from concentrating on reducing cost and simplifying functionality across platforms.

The SoundStation Duo offers high end table top conferencing with easy setup that operates on both analogue and IP networks. There is no need for expensive IT resources where they may not be prevalent in small and medium sized companies. The SoundStation Duo consequently is aimed at small to medium sized conference rooms and has the ability to increase its range with a pair of optional Microphones. The SoundStation Duo still boasts many of Polycom Industry leading features including Crystal Clear voice conferencing using Dynamic Noise Reduction and Polycom’s HD Voice technology over IP Networks and Mobile Phone interference resistance. Below are some of the main benefits.

• Built-in investment protection – Use in analogue or IP mode and keep it up-to-date with simple online software upgrades • Robust interoperability – Compatible with a broad array of IP call platforms to maximize voice quality and feature availability while simplifying management and administration • Business continuity – Auto failover from IP to analogue and failback for continuous operation in case of a network failure • Unparalleled voice clarity – Polycom HD Voice technology makes your IP conference calls more effective and productive • Easy to deploy and administer – Web configuration tool eliminates the need for a boot server • Superior call handing, security, and provisioning – Leveraging the most advanced IP endpoint software in the industry • Unmatched flexibility – Connect to mobile phones and PCs for Internet dialling

The Polycom SoundStation Duo can certainly be considered a possible game changer in the audio conferencing market. Only time will tell!
