Company announced Monday Mac OS X support for its CMA Desktop collaboration application. The expanded support for the Mac means Mac users will be able to participate with other video conferencing users from their desktop over IP.
Says Joe Sigrist, VP and GM of video solutions, "Polycom CMA Desktop sets a new standard for flexibility, performance and interoperability for desktop video collaboration and we are happy to deliver on customer demand, particularly in the education, healthcare, creative services and entertainment markets, for Mac OS X support."
The CMA Desktop system offers management and security options for presenters and participants, and can be scaled to support thousands of participants. The old fashioned way of running Polycom runs on dedicated hardware over ISDN. Over time that has moved to IP-based for considerable cost savings, and even more so going to desktops rather than dedicated stand-alone system.
The Polycom CMA Desktop for Mac OS X is expected to be available in April for no extra charge for CMA customers. No pricing is provided, just that users should contact Polycom or their Polycom solution provider.
