The Convergence of Video and Pocket

February 29, 2012, by Adam Kaiser in Polycom, Video Conferencing

Now in its forth year, The Mobile World Congress is a three day event that focuses on the “mobile” industry. It’s initial focus was on cellular technology, originally being called GSM Mobile World Congress. The event has now expanded its focus to encompass all areas of mobility and communications. At this year’s event video conferencing takes center stage.  Both Cisco and Polycom have a major presence at the event.  Polycom made some announcements today to extend their RealPresence platform.

Now available on the iTunes App Store, is Polycom Real Presence Mobile for iPhone (specifically the new iPhone 4s). Joining the ranks of Skype, Vidyo, and others with smartphone video apps, Polycom is extending its footprint to all levels of mobile device.

Just a few years ago it was impossible to imagine video conferencing on a device in your pocket.  Now organizations deploying or extending their visual collaboration environment can extend it right to their workers’ pockets.

What can you do with apps like these? Check out the video below:
