Who is Polycom?


The California-based company Polycom is a global leader in the communications solutions sector. Founded in 1990, it has more than 600 issued or pending patents and is renowned for its long-running SoundStation audio conferencing unit.


What is the Polycom SoundStation?


Launched way back in 1992, the first Polycom SoundStation set a new standard for audio conferencing equipment. The device was one of the first to bring conference calling to mainstream attention and proved popular throughout the business community.

The SoundStation2 arrived in 2004 and built upon the success of the original conference phone with a 50 per cent increase in microphone sensitivity. It remains a firm favourite to this day. A range of audio conferencing devices have since emerged under the brand, including the SoundStation2 EX, SoundStation2 Wireless and SoundStation2 Wireless 2 EX.

What technology powers the Polycom SoundStation2?

The Polycom SoundStation2 is a full duplex phone, which means more than one person can speak in a conference call at any one time. This sets it apart from traditional half-duplex speakerphones and makes for more natural conversations.

Sound quality is also an important characteristic of the Polycom SoundStation2. The phone comes equipped with Polycom Acoustic Clarity Technology and Dynamic Noise Reduction as standard to enhance voice audibility and minimise background noise. And it has been specially designed to resist interference from mobiles and other wireless devices.

What are the main features?

The classic tripod design incorporates a backlit LCD screen and numeric keypad so you can see phone numbers in real time as you punch them in. Since the microphones boast 360 degree coverage and can pick up voices up to 10 ft away, you no longer have to worry about who sits where in order to take part in the audio conferencing call.

Finally, itís worth bearing in mind that the Polycom SoundStation2 is fully expandable. Although designed for small and medium-sized conference rooms, by buying additional Polycom SoundStation2 compatible microphones you can also use your audio conferencing unit in larger settings.
