The Polycom RealPresence Group Series has been designed to complement and expand on the existing Polycom RealPresence HDX Series, with both series sharing common features as far as interoperability, scalability and video/audio performance. For all that they share there will be certain features that will be supported by the RealPresence Group but not the RealPresence HDX and vice versa.
Some of the features unique to the RealPresence Group include 1080p60fps for people and content, a new user interface and remote, and HDMI inputs/outputs. On the other hand some of the features that are currently unique to the HDX Series include ISDN/POTS connectivity, People on Connect, MS Lync 2010 Qualification and UC-APL certification for US FED.
The RealPresence Group Series sets a new standard for ease of use in video collaboration. The breakthrough user experience is easy for even first time users with no need for training. Backed by years of customer research, Polycom’s new user interface speeds up the adoption of video communications and reduces support costs for IT administrators. Plus, breakthrough Polycom SmartPairing technology* makes it simple to use your own Apple iPad tablet to start and manage video calls.
