Good News for Business Collaboration

Polycom recently announced that its UC Intelligent Core System will soon allow interoperability with other collaboration solutions. The news was greeted as a positive development in an industry for which communication between different vendors’ unified communications systems has proved an ongoing quest.

This announcement is good news for any business seeking to add a cost-saving video communications system to its enterprise. Polycom solutions will also be interoperable with the Cisco telepresence systems based on the Telepresence Interoperability Protocol (TIP).

Mike Brandofino, executive vice president of video communications and unified collaboration for AVI-SPL, was enthusiastic about the development, particularly because of the benefit it will have for end users.

“Polycom is definitely going down the right direction in saying it will support TIP,” said Brandofino, “especially since interoperability remains one of the main gating factors to mass adoption of video.

“It is better for the whole industry and customers if the major manufacturers implement whatever standards are required to support interoperability.”

Top Reasons to Use Digital Signage

Digital Signage has quickly developed into far more than an electronic version of print advertising. Industry expert Lyle Bunn, who recently spoke at AVI-SPL headquarters in Tampa, Fla., explained that digital signage as a communications tool has expanded to include a number of systems that can be integrated throughout an enterprise. From merchandising to interactivity to employee communications, digital signage presents a number of benefits, including:

  • Revenue generation (in-store kiosks empower customers to find what they want, and provide third-party advertising opportunities)
  • Reduced perceived wait time (think about how useful those monitors are at making the time pass when you’re waiting a half hour on line at Disney World)
  • Limited need for physical upgrades
  • Reduced cost of print materials
  • Targeted messages (by day and time)

Watch Bunn discuss these advantages in a brief clip from his talk:
