Polycom said it has new certifications for its high-definition telepresence systems in federal applications—the Joint Interoperability Certification (JITC), validated interoperability with IPv6 networks, and integrated FIPS 140-2 validation.

The HDX 9000, 8000 and 7000 room-sized “immersive” telepresence systems (high-end videoconferencing tools that make meeting participants seem like they’re sitting right across the table) as well as the HDX 4000 personal telepresence solution have attained the three validations for U.S. security, interoperability and performance requirements.

The Polycom 8000 series room telepresence systems and the Polycom RMX 2000 conferencing platform (a multipoint video bridge) are also now capable of high-def conferencing at 720p/60 (720p HD at 60 frames per second—twice the usual refresh rate of HD screens), enabling more realistic, smoother display of movement.

Polycom has a family of telepresence and visual communications products that integrate with one another to connect entire organizations from desktops to immersive telepresence rooms. The company also offers video integration and a range of specialized phones for Microsoft OCS 2007. That means people using other conferencing systems (for example, the company’s medical teleconferencing product, desktop phone units or just an audio connection) can participate.

Its uses extend to command and control, education and training, and sophisticated applications from tele-surgery to tele-psychiatry.

Polycom has also launched its most advanced multimedia VoIP desktop telephone, the VVX 1500. It’s built from the audio side up, with robust fidelity from 3 KHz to 22 KHz.. It’s a personal videoconferencing system with Polycom HD Voice, an open application programming interface (API) and microbrowser for the delivery of Web content and integration with business applications. The company boasts some 25 partners that are developing integrated apps for Polycom VoIP products.

“Visual communication is a strategic initiative in many government applications today because it can help transform the way people work and bring enhanced efficiency, speed and effectiveness to geographically distributed organizations and teams,” said Barry Morris, Polycom vice president of federal sales. “Polycom has the most technologically advanced portfolio of visual communications solutions and a dedicated security office with an extensive certification roadmap in place to integrate federal security requirement across our solutions.”

Polycom showed the products at FOSE in Washington last week.
