The Polycom Trio 8500 is meant for medium-sized conference rooms and has HD voice audio quality. It also has a noise-blocking feature and multi-line registration.
Video and content sharing are not yet available for this model but are planned in the future.
A full-colour screen and integration with Microsoft Calendar are additional features.
"For a quarter century, businesses have known to look for Polycom’s visually distinctive phones and have counted on them to provide superior and unparalleled call quality.
“Australia is a major conference phone region for Polycom and we expect Trio 8500 to be well received by both channel partners and customers. It’s been designed for the 21st century workplace with a modern look and crystal-clear audio quality and designed for the best interoperability across ecosystems, another signature Polycom feature.”
Features have also been added to the Polycom Trio 8800, the company's bestseller.
It will now allow participants to pair personal devices and share local content over Apple AirPlay or Miracast-certified devices.
Later this year, the 8800 will support enterprise-class motorised pan-tilt-zoom cameras that offer greater visibility in larger conference rooms.
Both Trio models support multi-line registration, allowing businesses to move between open SIP environments, Skype for Business environments, or both, and work with other cloud-based audio and video platforms, including Zoom, BlueJeans, Cisco, Avaya, WebEx and others.
The company is also introducing a new audio solution for team and personal spaces, such as huddle rooms, with the new Polycom VoxBox, an ultra-compact speaker phone that allows customers to experience Polycom’s HD Voice technology. It will be available in Australia next month.
