Polycom launches unified communications apps for Galaxy Tab
Samsung and Polycom have announced an agreement to deliver unified communications (UC) solutions for mobile platforms.
Under the agreement, Polycom will develop standards-based video applications to be embedded and distributed on the Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab.
"Polycom's differentiated strategy is to deliver innovative UC solutions on partners' mobile platforms, as opposed to creating proprietary systems," said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, Polycom's general manager of UC products and chief development officer.
He added "Unlike other mobile video applications, we believe the Polycom application will drive a network effect for users and businesses by enabling the Samsung Galaxy Tab to connect with each other, as well as other standards-based tele presence and video conferencing systems and applications."
Polycom claims that its solution will enable users to participate both in point-to-point and group conversations with HD quality video.
Polycom's UC core infrastructure can be placed in service provider networks to enable cloud-based UC delivery to consumers and enterprises.
This new solution portfolio is designed to integrate into mobile, enterprise-based room, and desktop systems.
The application will be available on other Smasung smartphones as well. "We are partnering with Polycom to bring standards-based video communications experience to a wide range of UC applications and devices, including the new Samsung Galaxy tablets and Samsung smartphones." said Hosoo Lee, executive vice president and head of the Samsung Media Solution Center.
