SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 1 July
2019 - Plantronics, Inc. ("Poly" -- formerly Plantronics and Polycom) (NYSE: PLT), a global communications
company that powers meaningful human connection and collaboration, today
announced the Poly G7500, a video
device that combines content collaboration and video conferencing capabilities
in one device. The G7500 integrates advanced
audio features, wireless content sharing and Ultra HD 4K video, creating an
immersive audio and video experience for mid- to large-sized conference rooms.
"Not only are we
spending more time in meetings than just a few years ago, we're collaborating
in different ways than before with the rise of remote workers, open office floor
plans and increasingly global workforces," said Chris Thorson, senior director
of global solutions marketing, Poly. "All of these factors are generating
demand for video conferencing solutions that make meetings more productive and
are as real as face-to-face. Poly developed G7500 with these factors in mind --
simplicity, clarity and limitless possibility. Your focus stays on the meeting,
while our technology steps quietly into the background."
The G7500 places 4K content
and collaboration at the center of the experience with a customizable interface
for both touch and non-touch displays as well as secure and guest network
capabilities for all connected devices. The G7500 also features infinite
whiteboarding, where users can write over content, use the screen as a
whiteboard space, and capture for later use. By combining video conferencing
and content sharing in one solution, the G7500 empowers multiple attendees to
share content -- from any device -- to make meetings more productive.
The G7500 also helps teams share ideas
and express themselves clearly with rich visuals and detailed audio that allow
users to feel like they're together in the same room. Ultra HD 4K video
promises four times the quality in video calls and beyond. "The advancements and capabilities of the G7500
will dramatically improve the quality of our surgical education and training
program," said professor Dr. Wilko Grolman, an otolaryngologist based in the
Netherlands. "With 4K resolution, we are one step closer to viewing the
procedure as though it's through the surgeon's eyes."
