I'm sorry, I didn't get that. Can you please repeat?
The modularity of today’s work environment can be great for some (picture a creative design group in southern California, complete with ping pong tables and puppy dogs) and not so great for those who are forced to deal with the constant, everyday chatter of a productive work environment. How many times have you scheduled a conference call in one of the rarely-available phone booth-sized conference rooms only to find that it has been double-booked? Then you attempt to make the call from your workstation and can barely hear your client on the other line; who happens to be on speaker phone in the car. As you struggle to hear them, they struggle to hear you; getting an earful of workplace laughter, coughing and chatter that you can’t seem to cancel out.
When it comes to communicating via voice and video, today’s technology gives us a lot of options. We can use most any device, with some systems offering docking stations for your phone or tablet to chat, dial or hold video calls. But once you’ve got them on the line, how in the heck do you hear them?
Luckily, there is a solution to this seemingly annoying and productivity-killing problem. With the RealPresence Group Series, you get the ultimate in voice clarity, automatically reducing background noises and delivering advanced echo cancellation to keep meetings on track and free from distractions. In particular, Polycom® Acoustic Fence™ creates a virtual “fence” around a user’s headset or handset and captures sounds from inside the virtual fence while blocking sounds and distractions from outside, offering smoother video collaboration in a busy work environment. Any sounds from inside the “fence” are transmitted clearly. Anything outside this boundary gets automatically muted. Considered a stroke of genius by anyone who has experienced the flurry of activity that can take place in an open environment, this solution is as effective as it sounds.
