When it comes to conferencing, Polycom is a name most businesses are familiar with. ETC is a Polycom Partner and we are certified to sell and service Polycom’s products for the small to medium business.
Voice Conferencing: When you hold a conference call in a boardroom with multiple attendees, a standard business telephone, even a high-end executive model, is usually not adequate to the task. A more powerful speaker and multiple microphones are necessary if everyone is to be heard. A phone designed for conferencing also compensates for room acoustics and even cancels out background noise such as fans or air conditioners. If you regularly hold meetings with remote attendees, a conference phone such as the ‘Polycom Voicestation’ or the ‘Soundstation2’ is essential. Visit www.polycom.ca for more details.
Video Conferencing or “Telepresence”: Video conferencing has been around for a long while. It’s not until recently that the technology has progressed to the point where it is both economically viable for the small to medium sized business and capable of transforming the experience of holding a meeting with remote attendees into something close to having them in the room with you.
A fully functional Telepresence system, such as the Polycom HDX6000, can be set up in two or more boardrooms, be it across town or across the country. Telepresence is affordable for any business that can benefit from it and can pay for itself in travel cost savings alone. All that is needed to connect them together is a basic broadband connection or equivalent network bandwidth. An HD Telepresence system is like having a window at the end of your boardroom table looking into another boardroom. Meetings can be far more productive when everyone can see one another.
ETC Telecom can provide a complete meeting room installation of your Telepresence solution including projector and screen mounting, audio system installation, and of course network wiring. Visit www.polycom.ca for more details.
