The Polycom Trio brings the iconic three-legged conference room speaker into the age of digital communication, with progressive features such as an integrated 5” color touchscreen display, Android OS functionality, premium audio input/output, NFC, sophisticated background noise blocking, and external device integration. The clean, modern design of the Polycom Trio and its intuitive functionality introduce a new design language focused on collaboration. The Trio was designed to optimize user productivity. The built-in high-quality speakers with background noise blocking technology, 360° microphone coverage, and up to 20-foot microphone pick up range deliver the best-ever audio experience to date. We have also enhanced user experience by incorporating illuminated mute buttons on each leg and 5-way HD voice conferencing capacity. The Trio is the only smart hub on the market that allows HD content sharing from external devices such as smart phones, computers, and tablets. Seamless integration with external visual devices redefines product expectations in its category, and provides opportunity for intuitive, no-compromise visual collaboration that previously would be cost prohibitive. Skype calls are also made simple with integrated Skype for Business through Microsoft Lync and built-in support for a 1080p30 USB camera.
