The Polycom TPX 204M is a new two-screen solution for small and medium conference environments accommodating up to four people in each location, and the TPX 102M is a single-screen solution for small meeting environment and offices accommodating up to two people at each location.

The Polycom TPX 306M with content on the table, TPX 204M and TPX 102M are now available for order through FVC's certified Polycom channel partners in Middle East and North Africa.

K.S. Parag, MD for FVC, said:

    'Telepresence is increasingly being recognised in the region as a viable business solution that delivers bottom-line benefits while removing distance as a barrier. Polycom is uniquely positioned to lead this change thanks to its unrivaled portfolio and proven technology. 'Our solutions help reduce costs, shorten sales cycles, improve customer retention and lower carbon emissions by providing an effective travel alternative.'

Gartner, Inc., a leading analyst firm, also recently gave Polycom a 'Positive' rating in Gartner's 'MarketScope for Video Telepresence Solutions, 2008' dated April 21, 2008 by Rich Costello and Scott Morrison.

According to the study, a 'Positive' rating signals that Gartner considers that particular vendor a viable choice for strategic investments, while planning for known limitations, for potential customers.

The study further states that by 2010, Gartner expects telepresence to generate $600m in annual equipment (including services) revenue worldwide, total telepresence market revenue could reach $1.5bn annually by 2010.

Polycom is the leading provider of telepresence solutions with more than 13,000 systems shipped to more than 1,000 customers worldwide, and more than 600 patents related to voice, video and telepresence technologies.
