Any device.
One click.
One meeting.

The first technology to connect Skype for Business video with existing video systems.


Joining a Microsoft Skype for Business meeting from any device,
in any location, is as easy as one simple click.


Polycom RealConnect for Skype for Business is the first technology that solves the age-old dilemma of making different multiple video systems work together.  The RealConnect solution simplifies communications by leveraging native Microsoft Outlook calendaring and bringing everything and everyone together through click to join across devices.  Once in a meeting, the RealConnect solution enhances the Skype for Business client user experience by providing an additional view of meeting participants or panoramic wide-shots of those sitting in dedicated immersive rooms.  

Only the RealConnect solution for Skype for Business delivers all of these features: ·        

  • Just one workflow – Familiar Outlook scheduling workflow
  • One touch join -- Single click-to-join for both Skype for Business clients and Polycom video and voice endpoints
  • Leverage legacy Cisco investment - Enables Cisco endpoints for calendaring and click-to-join experience
  • See more faces – Show up to nine remote participants in the Skype for Business video window
  • Share content – Bi-directional content  between Skype for Business users and standard videoconference systems
  • Optimize resources– Conference hosted on both Skype for Business Server AVMCU and Polycom RealPresence Clariti infrastructure for resource optimization

The result is a video collaboration that is so much easier than before, which helps user adoption and increased usage.  The RealConnect experience is available as part of RealPresence Clariti collaboration infrastructure software along with deployment services for simple purchasing and implementation.

Polycom RealPresence Clariti is a simple, powerful and cloud-ready collaboration infrastructure software that connects people in businesses of all sizes with HD voice, video, content and web collaboration.
