Polycom announces colaboration with Samsung in providing Unified Communications Apps for Galaxy Tab

Polycom, a global leader in Unified Communications (UC), announced on Monday an agreement with Samsung Electronics in delivering unified communications apps on the 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. “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 telepresence and video conferencing systems and applications.”

The applications provided by Polycom will allow users to participate in point-to-point and group conversations maintaining excellent video and audio HD quality and functionality. Cloud based Unified Comunications delivery will be possible thanks to the UC Intelligent Core infrastructure, being addressed to consumers and enterprises.

“Video communications is a critical UC application within mobile platforms, and the combination of high-quality and open interoperability is critical to driving customer value,” said Dr. Hosoo Lee, executive vice president and head of the Samsung Media Solution Center. “We are partnering with Polycom due to its unparalleled HD video and voice quality, to bring a best-in-class, standards-based video communications experience to a wide range of UC applications and devices, including the new Samsung Galaxy tablets and Samsung smartphones.”
