The Polycom solutions bring HD video collaboration to any size rooms and any work environment, from large conference halls, to individual desktop solutions, to mobile devices,” said Ilya Gorbunov, CIO of SPBGU.
Students and staff members have access to Polycom RealPresence video solutions which allow them to collaborate on high technology with international universities. The RealPresence Platform is interoperable with a range of business and communications applications.
Polycom RealPresence video solutions are facilitating internal meetings, lectures and seminars for the university.
The Polycom RealPresence Collaboration Servers at the university mix multi-party voice, video and content collaboration together in the same call, simplifying and enriching the user experience.
Saint Petersburg State University promotes the use of exchange programs and facilities by students, researchers and academic staff. At present, the university cooperates with 230 higher education institutions across Europe, North America, Asia and South America, and Polycom RealPresence video solutions facilitate this cooperation with easy, HD online interactions.
Polycom RealPresence Room solutions enable more students to participate in a lecture, from other locations. Some lecture halls are not large enough to accommodate the number of students who want to participate, and in these cases, the lecture can be seen in several classrooms at a time.
