It is a much more efficient way to communicate with your business partners and employees in regional offices, in another State or country. With video conferencing you can now attend to business meetings and sales calls with clients and customers and sharply reduce your travel expenses for business trips.

Polycom, a five star rated video conferencing company has revolutionized the video conferencing industry through its innovative and easy to use video and audio conference systems which have become virally popular among the business community. Polycom video conference systems have been in the market for more than 10 years which has given them immense experience in the field of video conference equipment technology. They have integrated and developed a number of technological solutions to common problems in teleconferencing. A number of solutions and a few tips have been listed that together with Polycom video conference technology can make your teleconference experience extremely worthwhile.

To arrange a successful video conference session you need to have the right equipment that will at best cover most scenarios in the best possible way. The first and most important is that you have proper lighting in the place where you are going to hold the video conference especially lighting that will show the participants in the audience (especially the key people in the organization). The lighting mustn’t be too bright and should not directly face the participants. It will both overload the image sensors of the cameras used in video conferencing and be a cause of disturbance and uneasiness for the participants in the video conference session (Who would like constant bright light on their faces during a video conference).

Regarding overloading the images sensor, the Polycom video conference camera can darken the pixels of too bright images and brighten too dark images eliminating shadows and glare.

The next thing is that you must have a proper, crystal clear audio conferencing system because audio is the formal mode of communication in the case of video communication. It serves no purpose to have video with no sound. Polycom video conference systems have built a unique solution to solve this problem by integrated an audio signal processing module that works on the incoming audio signal and removes any ambient and annoying background noise including removing the “echo effect” (common in other video conferencing systems) and produces a clean and clear audio signal that is almost the same as CD quality stereo sound. Other handy features that Polycom has put in its video conferencing system are 3 cardiod microphones that cover a 360° area and the system can detect sound of up to 10 feet giving you the convenience in speaking up during a teleconference session.

The last is an appropriate network system which isn’t completely dependent but rather on the network support that Polycom provides with its video conferencing solutions. Polycom uses a IP (H.323, SIP or SCCP) or ISDN/ IP models to support network connections. Polycom video conference systems can also support multiple sites points for video conferencing making it very flexible for you to manage your video conferencing network.

Polycom has always wowed its loyal fans with the unique and interesting solutions it brings to the video conferencing industry. If you are considering Polycom has your preferred choice then you will surely get your money’s worth in terms of performance and reliability with Polycom video conference systems.
