The Polycom® RealPresence® Group 500 solution is ideal for conference rooms and other collaborative environments, from small meeting rooms to larger rooms with dual screens. Powerful video and audio performance and interactive content collaboration bring users closer together and drive meaningful conversation for geographically dispersed teams. The compact, sleek design is easily hidden out of sight, keeping your rooms clutter-free.

Efectively sharing and collaborating with content across disparate teams is critical. With the Polycom® RealPresence® Group 500 solution there are multiple ways to share and collaborate, allowing each team to use the method most suited to their needs and style. From whiteboarding, to annotating, to sharing applications and programs on a computer or tablet–all can be included as part of a comprehensive, collaborative video session.

Conference rooms come in all shapes and sizes, but it is important to deliver a great experience for all participants, no matter the size of the room. The Polycom® RealPresence® Group 500 solution o ers exible options that ensure that all participants can see and be seen, no matter where they are sitting.

Polycom® EagleEyeTM Producer uses innovative facial-tracking algorithms to accurately frame all room participants, eliminating the “bowling alley” view that is all too common in video calls.

For a more immersive experience, Polycom® EagleEyeTM Director automatically zooms in on the person speaking, transmitting facial expressions and body language for higher impact and more productive video collaboration.

The Polycom® EagleEyeTM IV camera offers brilliant visual clarity with a 4k sensor, and is available with 12x or 4x zoom and a wide-angle lens adapter, capturing everyone clearly even in odd-shaped rooms

For smaller rooms, the Polycom® EagleEyeTM Acoustic camera takes just seconds to mount on a flat-panel display and delivers excellent 1080p image quality.

Use the optional built-in multipoint to host video calls with up to 6 participants in HD quality. Included support for dual monitors helps participants see everything more clearly for meetings with greater impact. For a turnkey solution, Polycom® RealPresence® MedialignTM solutions deliver the industry’s best video collaboration with an innovative, modern design that deploys anywhere in minutes.
