Polycom Demos EagleEye Director at InfoComm 2011

Polycom Makes Push for Video Conferencing Interoperability

As part of its ongoing effort to encourage and foster interoperability among providers of video conferencing and telepresence solutions, Polycom recently announced that it has teamed up with a number of service providers to form the Open Visual Communications Consortium (OVCC).

The goal of the OVCC is to enable businesses, education and healthcare organizations to collaborate from anywhere in the world via a standards-based visual communications exchange. Video systems to be supported include telepresence, high-definition and standard definition systems, as well as desktop clients and mobile devices. The hope is that by connecting millions of enterprise users through secure, standards-based interoperable systems, the OVCC will drive B2B applications as well as market growth.
