Two Polycom Innovations Awarded TMCNet 2015 Communications Solutions Product of the Year

Polycom® Acoustic Fence™ audio technology and the EagleEye™ Producer Camera Recognised for Exceptional Innovation

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – September 11, 2015 – Polycom, Inc (NASDAQ: PLCM) today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded both the Polycom® EagleEye™ Producer and Polycom® Acoustic Fence™ technologies with a 2015 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

Polycom EagleEye Producer camera technology is an industry-first camera innovation that employs facial recognition technology to create a more natural, production-like experience in meetings. It dynamically finds everyone in the discussion and automatically frames them for clear view—even when new people join or leave the room. The EagleEye Producer camera is ideal for small to medium sized meeting rooms and offers data analytics that help IT administrators effectively measure conference room and video collaboration use overall.

Polycom Acoustic Fence™ technology uses standard Polycom microphone arrays to build a virtual fence around the meeting participants. This virtual fence lets through sounds from inside, but blocks noises or other voices from outside the fence. The Polycom Acoustic Fence technology is ideal for public workspaces and open office environments where meeting interruptions and distractions are a frequent occurrence, or for noisy conference rooms where sounds often seep in from the outside.

“We are proud to receive these 2015 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Awards from TMC,” said Michael Frendo, Polycom, Executive Vice President Engineering. “Polycom keeps our customers’ experience at the heart of everything we do and these innovations demonstrate our commitment to building and enabling the workplace of the future today to provide the best end user experience in the industry. We are honoured to be recognised as a leader in the video collaboration marketplace.”

“Congratulations to Polycom for being honoured with two 2015 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Awards,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The Polycom Acoustic Fence and Polycom EagleEye Producer are truly innovative products and are amongst the best solutions that facilitate voice, data and video communications brought to market in the past twelve months. I look forward to continued excellence from Polycom in 2015 and beyond.”
