Polycom RealPresence Centro

Polycom's RealPresence Centro is a new collaboration solution for small groups and rooms, but with a completely new design approach: Comprised of a 360 degree voice and video camera and four circularly mounted touch displays, RealPresence Centro is placed right in the center of the room or group, enabling everyone to sit, stand or freely walk around without ever worrying about remaining "on cam".

RealPresence Centro offers sophisticated high-definition video, audio and content sharing with native Lync interoperability in an innovative housing, which – thanks to integrated rollers – is as easy to transport from room to room or group to group, as to control even by inexperienced users.
