Throughout history, people have gathered “in the round” for their most important engagements.
Anthropological research reinforces that joining in a circle is a natural and more equitable human behavior.
By removing seating hierarchy, people engage and collaborate at a higher level. Despite this fact, traditional meeting spaces are rectangular in shape with an obvious seat of power.
Virtual participants are placed on the wall at the far end of a long table and forced to work extra hard to be part of the collaborative process, or worse, just forgotten or disengaged.
Only Polycom RealPresence Centro was purpose-built to revolutionize team collaboration by drawing everyone to the center of the experience—regardless of their location.
With patented technology, 360-degree cameras and sensors, and intelligent switching, RealPresence Centro creates a virtual circle where everyone remains in close eye contact—even as people move around the room on the near or far side.
Orders being accepted now, with expected availability in February 2016.
