Overall Satisfaction with Polycom RealPresence Group Series

We use the Polycom RealPresence Group Series to participate in conference calls. We use Microsoft Teams to create and host the meetings. It helps bring meetings together and a sense of togetherness. You can see the other people on the screen and the cameras help them to see you and whoever is talking.
  • Make conference calls
  • Display clear pictures
  • Setting up meetings can take a bit to register
  • The initial setup was very cumbersome
  • Helped keep costs down at board meeting time. Everyone can just call in now and employees do not need to travel as much.
  • Helped organize meetings and bring customers together with sales.
The Polycom RealPresence Group Series was top of the line. It had a lot more features as well as the ability to integrate with Microsoft Teams. With Highfive, you had to pay to keep the device running and it was more like renting it. Although we pay maintenance with Polycom we will own the devices. The Highfive camera also didn't move. Lifesize was comparable but it did not integrate with Microsoft Teams at the time. It may as of now, I am not sure.
Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Symantec Ghost Solution Suite
It is very well suited for conference calls. You could also use it for demonstration purposes. We use two cameras and they will move to focus on the whole room or towards the person that is talking. We use two TV screens so that the people of the meeting can be displayed on one screen while the presentation can be displayed on the other.
