Polycom and Easynet Global Services Connect Executives Worldwide Through True Immersive Telepresence at Gartner Symposium

Gartner ITXPO in Cannes will see the first ever public, fully immersive telepresence capability demonstrated in Europe

LONDON, UK - Oct. 27, 2009 - Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in telepresence, video and voice communication solutions, and Easynet Global Services have teamed up to demonstrate a fully functional and immersive telepresence suite at the forthcoming Gartner Symposium. The Gartner Symposium/ITXPO will take place in the Palais Des Festivals in Cannes, France from November 2-5, 2009.

Both companies will operate a RealPresence™ Experience High Definition (RPX™ HD) 204 immersive telepresence system which will demonstrate how it empowers executives, increases productivity, and strengthens business relationships - all in real-time. Executives attending the event will have the opportunity to connect with their peers across the globe. They should register their interest prior the event via the following link http://www.mytelepresencemeeting.com/en/gb/

Polycom immersive telepresence solutions provide a natural, 'across the table' experience. On-screen meeting participants are shown in true-to-life dimensions. Participants can speak with and read the body language of others - just as if they all were in the same room.

Uniquely designed and all-inclusive, every detail has been taken care of so you can focus on your agenda, not the technology. Extremely flexible, Polycom immersive telepresence solutions are also easy to use and scalable. With configurations for different space, capacity and budgets, Polycom immersive telepresence solutions allow you to apply intimate, effective collaboration to a broad range of applications.

Easynet's global managed network is the force which drives these telepresence solutions. Its global Managed Telepresence customers benefit from a face-to-face experience backed up by a 24/7 Video Network Operations Centre. Delegates at the ITxpo can see the broad range of collaboration solutions available by visiting Polycom and Easynet at their booths # E3 and E4.

Steve Leyland, General Manager, Polycom, said:
"We are excited to facilitate this first ever truly immersive telepresence experience for executives at a Gartner Symposium. They will be in a position to see first-hand what we call 'seeing is believing' and be able to interact with their peers across the globe. When delivered by Easynet and Polycom people are seen in life-like dimensions, just across the table and in unparalleled HD quality. Polycom immersive telepresence can be integrated with UC environments of any standards-based vendor in the market place and provides therefore the utmost level of flexibility and a quick ROI for any deployment."

Denis Planat, Chief Operating Officer, Easynet Global Services, said:
"Managed Telepresence is crucial for global businesses looking to reduce costs but improve collaboration - in fact, our customers are seeing travel cost reductions of around 25% with a ROI of less than 12 months. Easynet and Polycom's showcase at the Gartner ITxpo is a fantastic chance for delegates to experience the power of Managed Virtual Meetings for themselves."
