Polycom Open Telepresence Experience (OTX)

The Polycom Open Telepresence Experience (OTX) solution brings the productivity benefits of normal immersive telepresence to nearly any type of meeting.  You can use it to collaborate with workgroups, global development teams, and everyday meetings are enhanced by the clarity, rich video, and content details. The unique, multipurpose design delivers incredibly sharp full-size images in a modern, unique setting. But you can also rely on these systems for those regular in-person meetings that do not require video.

Polycom Open Telepresence Experience

Polycom OTX is the ideal environment for visual collaboration, including calling other immersive rooms or any standards-based video system. It also offers native interoperability with leading UC platforms such as Microsoft® Lync®.

Polycom has designed every last detail to make your meetings feel as though you are sitting across the same table – helping you forget about the technology and get down to business. Several sizes are available to meet the needs of different environments or meetings, from three-screen models which seat up to six on video, to one-screen versions ideal for executive offices.

Content monitors arise automatically when you need them (bringing you closer to the content being shared) and stay completely out of the way when not in use.  The optional Complete Experience Kit maximizes the immersive feeling while giving you a consistent, high-quality experience at every location with minimal room modifications.
