We no longer offer the product Polycom RealPresence Education Bundle.
For one year starting in November 2011, Polycom is offering the recently launched Polycom UC Board, together with the Polycom RealPresence Room HDX 7000 (or optionally HDX 8000) and fifty m100 telepresence licenses, as a specially-designed bundle for educational institutions. These room telepresence systems offer users high quality audio and high definition video communication with standards-based H.264 High Profile technology, which reduces the necessary bandwidth by 50%.
The Polycom UC Board is an innovative whiteboard solution that improves communication and collaboration in video conferences. The background to this product is a survey carried out by Polycom in August 2011 among 500 teachers and lecturers in Germany, France, Great Britain, Russia and northern European countries. The survey shows that video conferencing is the most popular way for teachers to communicate with parents, students and colleagues when they are unable to talk in person.
„A major advantage of the e-learning platform is that our students gain very simple and immediate access to the recordings.“
