VoIP Conference Phone Spotlight: Polycom RealPresence Trio 8800
One of the biggest challenges of remote working is communicating with groups of workers in an efficient, clear way. Phone calls can't always provide good audio quality and many workers find setting up Skype or other systems on their desktops or laptops a challenge. That's where teleconferencing devices such as the Polycom RealPresence Trio 8800 come in, providing workers with clear, hands-free communication in an easy-to-use form.
Being tethered to a computer with a headset doesn't work well for all industries, and hands-free conference calling makes life easier for workers. Callers may need to talk to their colleagues while performing tasks in a lab or machine shop, having the freedom to move around, share videos of what they're looking at, or refer to documents while they're speaking.

A Versatile VoIP Conference Phone
There are many occasions when a simple phone call just isn't enough. This Polycom VoIP conference phone is ideal for use in medium or large conference rooms, thanks to its clear HD audio and long pickup range.
The system can communicate with most popular smartphones, pairing wirelessly with them for data sharing. This makes it an easy-to-use option for offices with a BYOD culture, allowing employees to work on their preferred platform and still participate in conference calls. The corporate directory feature allows workers to find the contacts they need with a few taps of the touch screen.
The device supports lossless audio codecs for improved call quality. For environments where there is a lot of noise and interference, an optional expansion microphone kit is available to provide a little more enhancement in clarity.
Integration with the RealPresence Resource Manager means the phone can interact with the devices of connected users, setting up conference calls, adding events to calendars, and allowing the sharing of images, recorded video, and even live video.
